DVD-Video Dumping Guide
From Redump Wiki
How to dump a DVD-Video disc using standard DVD copy protection. For dumping DVD-based games (such as PS2 discs) see this guide instead: DVD Dumping Guide (Disc Image Creator).
- Start DVD Decryptor
- Check the log window for the RCE protection type and make note of it for submission info, or take a screenshot and include it in the submission info.
- Close DVD Decryptor
Download the free version of ISO Buster.
- Open up IsoBuster > Track 01 > Extract User Data. This will create a dump of your DVD-Video.
- Right click on Track 1 > Sector View > type "16" in at the top, then copy + paste all text into a .txt document to submit with your logs. The PVD data from 0320 - 0370 (full six rows) are the pertinent info.
Retrieving Decryption Keys
Download QPxTool and unzip.
- Open your Command Prompt and cd to the location of your unzipped folder, for example: "C:\Users\[YOUR COMPUTER USER NAME HERE]\Downloads\QPxTool"
- Run readdvd.exe -d D: -o NUL (note "D:" is the drive letter with the DVD, change accordingly).
- Press Q to stop reading and then copy the three keys from the command window (decrypting disc key, trying player key, decrypted disc key).
