    Found some other great info on Jimmy's blog. :D

    Most of it is in the SDK stuff, but much nicer having it online...

    http://www.gamekult.com/blog/jimmy130/145133/identifiants-complets-64dd-final.html

    So, from looking at the Disk ID on my Paint Studio image...

    444D DM
    504A PJ
    0000 . Version 0x00, Disk number 0x00
    0100 . Use the file system recommended by Nintendo (0x01), Disk use 0x00.

    0000 . Factory line number 0x00 00 02 09 02 00 02 45
    0209 .
    0200 .
    0245 .E

    0019 . Production time 0x00 19 99 12 08 10 58 01 (1999, Dec 8th, 10:58:01)
    9912 .
    0810 .
    5801 X.

    3031 01 Company code (0x3031)

    4E4D NM Free area?
    412D A-
    4558 EX


    So yep, just the production line / dates different on mine.

    Found a silly bug in the ripping code where I was only sending half of the data via USB. lol
    Will post in the other thread now.

    @ Jimmy130:
    Does your Disk version of Super Mario 64 support the N64 Rumble Pak?

    There was a shindou re-release of Super Mario 64 in Japan only.

    This is Mario 64 first release, not the shindou edition.

    I recall hearing something about Super Mario 64 disk ver. But I really never believed it. Was it sold in Japan to the general public?
    Sorry if anybody had mentioned that, I didn't read all of the replies.

    Not sold. Solely proof of concept.

    Properly dumping disks isn't as far along as everyone claims it to be ;*)

    Things are still happening, but I've left the project with other more capable people for now.
    Somebody else was working on this too, and he is an uber-coder. ;)

    I've posted more than enough info on here for people to try this themselves though.

    I changed to an Arduino Due so it would be cost effective for people to try, but nobody wants to take the challenge?
    I'm sure there are much better coders out there than me who can sort out the code?

    AFAIK, the images I'm getting are almost complete, but as usual it's the link to the PC which is slightly screwing things up.

    It doesn't want to buffer enough data at a time to send over USB, so it occasionally glitches, or ends up with only half of each block.
    Might be better if I just tried an SD card shield instead, so it can write the data directly to a card.

    I might have another look soon, but so busy with other stuff.

    OzOnE.

    @Xboxsushi93 - You're thinking of the Space World 'Mario 128' tech demo, which went on to become Pikmin. That was showing off the Gamecube tech =)

    This is exciting alright! Does anyone have any horror stories about games that got accidentally destroyed/overwritten/deleted during the recovery process?

    No need to be rude. Even if it might be slightly off topic, you don't have to turn the snark on. If you don't have any input, then let others who do reply. I'm sure many users here have had situations like that happen to them.
