    I have tried to make what I had said to you and I have noticed that not there are great differences, the better thing is instead that this plugin to difference of the peopscdvd finds also the external readers dvd.

    Hi Gigaherz^^

    finally I found a bug in your plugin (current v0.6)

    Crash Bandicoot Wrath of Cortex (Pal Multi5)(CRC=3a03d62f) doesn't start with it.
    There is an endless loop of loading.
    I posted the Log-files of both plugins (yours and Peop's, which works)

    I think it has something to do in Line 333 (Don't work):

    {
    00006 NuDebugMsg - nufile.c(449) : Unable to load SIF module "cdrom0:\/USR/LOCAL/SCE/IOP/MODULES/SIO2MAN.IRX;1"


    00007 NuDebugMsg - nufile.c(465) : Unknown error code -203


    Can't load module sio2man}

    And in Line 267 (works):
    {
    00001 NuDebugMsg - nufile.c(545) : !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! opening file cdrom0:\NU2.ERR;1 failed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


    00002 NuDebugMsg - nufile.c(545) : Successfully loaded IRX Module: cdrom0:\SYS\SIO2MAN.IRX;1


    Loaded module sio2man
    }

    Please look at these^^

    EDIT: Sry, forgot to mention it: PCSX2 v0.9.5 SVN 377/GSDX v1.8 SVN 772/ZeroSPU2 v0.4.6/LilyPad Test 0.9.2/Peop's CDVD-Plugin v1.3.0 or Gigaherz's CDVD-Plugin v0.6.0/DEV9null Driver 0.3.0/USBnull Driver 0.5.0/FWnull Driver 0.4.0/Japan v2.20(10/02/2006) Console [Even if it is a Pal-Germany-Console; strange...]

    Can't say much, I havent' looked at the cdvd code for months... mainly because I don't like the current code at all, but rewriting it is boring. :p

    Basically the current threading code kind of works, but just because I'm lucky. I want to make a more robust code for it someday, but I can never seem to get myself into it.

    I looked at those logs, and it seems to read something wrongly, because it starts reading different sectors than it's supposed to. I don't have the game so I can't test it myself, but I will see if I manage to convince myself and code cdvd a bit more.

    Take your time, I'll wait ;)

    No, seriously, I can't help you much except beta-testing, sry... I'm not good enough in C++/C+ coding... This will take one more year to have the basic knowledge... But after then ...maybe:)

    [Sure, I have programs for it, but I'll need a better teacher than me:Dยด]

    Hi people, I have been fixing and reorganizing the cdvd plugin, and whiel it's still partially broken, I think the speed improvements are nice enough that it's worth showing to the world, so I have uploaded 0.7wip3 to the first post and sourceforge!

    Try playing a grandia3 FMV: Peops cdvd plugin gives me under 40 fps, while my cdvd plugin does over 70. Nearly as fast as a .iso!

    The sad part is ATM, the msot notable broken features are disc changing and dual layer support, but that's not really my fault! Microsoft decided to block access to most low level DVD/HD-DVD IOCTL functions from usermode in their drivers, but it still worked in Daemon Tools.

    The result is I can't tell if a DVD has two layers, or tell where the first layer ends, so I hacked it to bypass those checks, and now the plugin always assumes it's a single layer dvd... maybe even with CDroms (didn't try).

    Anyway I will try to figure out a way to bypass those restrictions, and retrieve the status of the disc, and the number and size of the layers.

    This is NOT gigaherz's fault.
    NO support for beta pcsx2.
    NO support for pirated bioses.

    Since you seem to be the "noobnoob" from before, I will ignore this post completely, and point you at the first post, where I say this plugin is BROKEN, and does NOT WORK well.
