Scanning for Copy Protection Guide
From Redump Wiki
This guide is for scanning your disc to identify which type of copy protection it is using. Once identified, you know what command to use when dumping.
There are two great tools to use.
- Insert disc and open A-Ray scanner app
- select drive
- press scan
- if shows no protection, press "Sector Scan"
- Insert disc and open ProtectionID app
- press scan -> CD/DVD Drive (file), select drive
- if shows no protection, press scan -> CD/DVD Drive (sector), select drive
You may need to install a game in order to scan the file(s) for exact version. You should make any files you scan read only. You can drag and drop files/folders onto Protection ID.
