Hi guys. My D2 original disk developed a crack from the hub and is now unreadable - can someone with Linux please make a bin/cue image of the CD and send me a link via PM? Here are the terminal commands:

To create a TOC/BIN pair (data track + CD audio)
Code:
$ cdrdao read-cd --read-raw --datafile IMAGE.bin --driver generic-mmc:0x20000 --device /dev/cdrom IMAGE.toc


To convert .toc to .cue
Code:
$ toc2cue IMAGE.toc IMAGE.cue


On Ubuntu it might be /dev/sr0 instead of /dev/cdrom
Code:
$ sudo umount /dev/sr0
$ cdrdao read-cd --read-raw --datafile IMAGE.bin --driver generic-mmc:0x20000 --device /dev/sr0 IMAGE.toc
$ toc2cue IMAGE.toc IMAGE.cue


Thanks

I've got an ISO on my drive, will that work? I think I made it with:
Code:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/user/file.iso

Also, I don't see toc2cue in my repository (Ubuntu Mate 16.04), just cue2toc.

Hi Vision. I got copy from steam so I'm sorted, thanks.

I think toc2cue is included in the cdrdao package. The benefit to using cdrdao is that it reads the disk in raw mode. Where dd and iso only copy the filesystem from track 1 this will also copy the CD audio tracks on mixed mode CDs. The cue file includes meta data about the CD tracks so that it can be mounted on a virtual drive or used to burn a mixed mode CD, essentially a clone of the original disk. I don't advocate piracy but collectors or people that want to preserve their original disks might be interested in making image backups for personal use, which as far as I know is allowed under fair use.

I can make a bin/cue image copy of my D2 CD (CD-ICD-083-0), though it will be from imgburn on windows. It will include the audio tracks (something you don't get in the Steam version). Since you already own the game and can prove it, I'd be fine sending you a backup. If you are interested, let me know of a good way to contact you (D3 IRC, AIM, ICQ, etc) and I'll set up a file transfer.

I totally advocate piracy because intellectual property laws are completely broken and so is the market. I can't tell you how much time I've wasted trying to buy things that doesn't exist in any form other than obtaining them from underground sources. Fuck 'em.
