Wow... awesome stuff! Just checked it out on my old copy of Ys I & II for the TG-16. Being a media freak I tend to like renaming and categorizing my media. However, this little app happened to know what disc I had stuck in. I read that the program can test the legitimacy of the disc using a TOC Database? One hiccup I noticed is that it didn't seem to recognize my copy of Ys III for the old TG-16? Ys I and II was labelled properly on the track output, but Ys III wasn't? Is this maybe because we had to import it from Japan at the time? Maybe Hudson changed some things when they ported it over here? Or do you have the Japanese Titles in that db inside the app?

YES! It works!

Great!

I'm sorry about all the shit I said about you on THAT forum. That was uncalled for, considering that it was based around a simple misunderstanding. :-

Well, it was forgiveable considering you were a $50 donator, a very very rare breed indeed - I wouldn't have bothered otherwise.

Most of those that were bitching were the usual freeloading suspects, so their opinions are of little to no use, in other words, mostly useless, but to have seen you and what you said was a bit troubling, plus I knew it was something that could easily be corrected, that is, assuming you weren't doing it on purpose (something I couldn't initially tell)...

Anyway, as I'm the big, bad, evil NightWolve, all that kind of stuff comes with the territory, ya know? ;)

I read that the program can test the legitimacy of the disc using a TOC Database?

Yeah, basically a French fellow named Squaresoft74 collects the TOC from someone with an original PCE/TG-16 silver by giving them a little application (pcerip) to read it. He stores all the collected data on a website, here. I came up with the idea of using that data to identify the title of the disc after having seen it in action with the Magic Engine emulator.

Hm, it should. Are you using an original silver, and not some burned CD-R  ? Lemme see the TOC data that TurboRip produces when reading that disc.

Yeah, it normally works since everything is in there, so something is up.

Tadaima!

Would you recommend using Alcohol (clonecd format) for making backup images of original CDs and for burning as well?

Hi Sanhime, long time no see!

I use Alcohol basic just for mounting, although it does have image ripping features. Seems to work OK.

You want the best freeware that I know of at present for burning software, that's gonna have to be ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/

Hey guys, I just went live with a new version of TurboRip v1.40 that fixed/improved several things and added new TOCs for the NEC PC-FX to coincide with the release of the Zeroigar English fan translation patch by elmer and SamIAm!! Hoping to see feedback from people with original CD-ROMs of PCE or PCFX games!

What's trippy for me is after I got it working on Windows 98SE, I went to my Winbook 7" tablet that I just upgraded to Windows 10, plugged in my USB hub, a DVD drive connected via USB, brought TurboRip over on a USB memory stick, started it, and with a Xak III CD-ROM, I always able to rip it however I wanted, ISO/WAV/CUE, or encoded to MP3 just to listen to the audio tracks, or even in ISO/APE/CUE for archival/backup purposes! :) Same behavior on Win98SE to WinVista and on to Win10, etc.! Just hard to believe it could be coded universal enough and work on all Windows flavors, past, and right up to the present! And it's coded in "C" and some Intel x86 Assembly like real men used to code, not in some slow ass Java crap!!! :P

This will be the universal download link: http://www.ysutopia.net/get.php?id=TurboRip

And here's a look at the changelog:

Quote
Version 1.40 (8/8/2015):

 + Uses the Native NT SCSI Library for NT/2K/XP/Vista/7/8/10 platforms! No more
   dependency on an ASPI DLL and none of the problems associated with it!!!

 + Certified, tested, approved for use all the way back to Windows 98SE for the
   "retro" in you, as well as all the way to the present with the new arrival
   of Windows 10!!!! Even I find it hard to believe it works in all of them!!!

 + Improved skipping of unreadable data sectors near postgap area transition.
   If you had trouble reading some PC Engine/TG-16 discs, this should help.

 + Major Command Prompt interface enhancement: TurboRip can now be fully run by
   double-clicking it anywhere in Windows Explorer! The user no longer has to
   first open a Command Prompt window and then CD to the folder where it is
   located in order to enter parameters! User will be prompted for parameters
   if none were detected when TurboRip is executed/double-clicked!! A troll on
   the Ancient Land of Ys forums once barked, "How do you use this F#!K1NG!
   PROGRAM?!?!?!?!" having never encountered command-line programs before and
   not knowing how to first open a Command Prompt before using it... Short of
   a future Windows GUI version, this enhancement solves that issue! Of course
   you can't fix stupid nor those who couldn't bother to read instructions...

 + By request, the TOC CD-ROM data of NEC PC-FX videogames (50 out of 80) were
   added to coincide with the release of the "Tyoushin Heiki Zeroigar" English
   fan translation patch on 8/8/2015!! Only games such as Zeroigar (a shooter)
   were added that "OBEY" the standard mixed-mode CD-ROM rules which can
   accurately be ripped by TurboRip (The next version will have all 80!).

 + Added CD-TEXT support! Some music audio discs can have track file names and
   other info such as artist, composer, genre, etc. burned into the "Lead-in"
   area of the disc. Unfortunately, it's rare to find discs using this feature
   because it arrived towards the end of the CD format's life, but I thought
   I'd add support for it nonetheless! You still have CDDB of course. (You can
   think of this feature as CDDB BTW, but that the album data/info is actually
   burned into the disc so you don't need a program to do a CDDB look-up over
   the Internet to obtain it.)

 + Added CD-EXTRA support! If your music audio disc carries an "Enhanced CD"
   label, then it's really a multi-session disc that comes in three possible
   forms, both with audio tracks and a MODE2 data track that can include music
   videos, interviews with the band, whatever, etc. So, I've added support for
   ripping the one format that I know of for now. I happen to have some of
   these discs, so I wanted to make TurboRip work with them. Unlike with
   CD-TEXT, music audio discs such as these are more common.

 + Various performance enhancements in interface, behavior, coding were made to
   really make this app as great as it should be!! However, index/gap detection
   by reading the "Q" subchannel failed to make it in this version. Stay tuned!

 + To reduce the size of TurboRip, all third-party components for MP3 (LAME)
   and APE are now zipped within TurboRip and extracted/unzipped on demand.

 + When using the /APE parameter for perfect CD backups, support files are now
   extracted to easily decompress APE files back to WAVE when needed! Simply
   double-clicking the "APE_TO_WAVE.bat" batch file will do the trick!

 + The default 3.9.9.0 (2004) Monkey’s Audio (APE) codec no longer requires the
   Unicode layer to work on Windows 98SE, so TurboRip fully works with both its
   APE and MP3 codecs on a clean install of all Windows flavors!!! :)

 + Bug fix: I noticed on Windows XP that as TurboRip read sectors from a CD/DVD
   drive connected via USB or FireWire, it could actually lose the connection!!
   This could happen consistently when you ALT+TAB'ed to switch to another app!
   I found the solution was to raise the Process Priority of TurboRip to HIGH!
   Normally, disc burning software will raise the Process Priority to HIGH as
   well when *burning* a disc which makes sense, and so with all that, I now
   ALWAYS set TurboRip's priority to HIGH to avoid the bug with external drives
   AND speed up the ripping time - it might as well live up to its name!! :)

 + Bug fix: Fixed a drive selection bug in Windows 98SE when selecting a drive
   number from the prompt menu.

 + Fixed issue that caused "Linda ³ (J)" to be excluded from the TOC database.
   Squaresoft74's use of the fancy superscript "3" was the culprit...

 + If all CD tracks are audio, it's a music CD (not videogame!) so messages
   like "Note: No videogame CD-ROM was detected." were eliminated.

 + The track file-naming style was changed to put the track # (01-99) first.
   This is better for sorting and viewing the CD image file set I think.

 + TurboRip no longer installs its own ASPI layer for Win9X/ME, it instead just
   relies on the default Adaptec ASPI layer. Compatibility is still maintained!

 + TurboRip sets the TOP_MOST flag 'on' of the Command Prompt window so it can
   never be hidden behind other windows until it is closed or minimized.

 + Bug fix: Fixed a minor bug that caused the /name parameter to be overwritten
   when the last parameter specified was /useaspi or if any other text was
   mistakenly typed at the Command Prompt.
