Dump PS2 DVD to ISO on Mac? [solved, see post #6]
#1
Hi there,

a few hours after I found this great Mac port of pcsx2 on the last weekend, I decided to order Shadow of the Colossus again (40 EUR at Amazon oO) :-).
After reading through the Mac support area I realized that unfortunately it is not possible to run a game directly from the Mac DVD drive :-/.

So, my question: Is there a way to dump the game from the DVD to an ISO using a Mac? Would a standard CD/DVD dump tool be sufficient (would a 'normal' ISO boot in pcsx2)?

Thanks,
Best regards,
onetwo

in a terminal :

hdiutil makehybrid -o Shadow_of_the_colossus.iso -udf -iso -joliet /Volumes/your_DVD_Drive
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go

Whoa, so easy? I thought the DVDs were coded in a special way.
Very nice, big thanks jesalvein!

The game finally arrived!
I created an ISO with the command above but pcsx2 won't load it:

Code:
GetElfName: SYSTEM.CNF not found; invalid cd image or no disc present.

Instead it runs the BIOS which tells me to insert a CD/DVD. The ISO is located in my users Document folder. For a test I mounted the ISO in OS X, the SYSTEM.CNF file is present, with this content:

Code:
BOOT2 = cdrom0:\SCES_533.26;1
VER = 1.00
VMODE = PAL

The file SCES_533.26 is also present.

Any ideas why the emu can't find the SYSTEM.CNF?

One thought struck me...
Have you configured the CD plugin to read the ISO file?
And if you have, try to google: How to copy PS2 disc on mac

EDIT:
It is probably because the mac command did not make an EXACT copy of the disc. Many programs and OS's copies the disc and writes it to their own format.

Hi guys,

I found a solution! Instead of using the command mentioned above:

Code:
hdiutil makehybrid -o Shadow_of_the_colossus.iso -udf -iso -joliet /Volumes/your_DVD_Drive

This procedure works:

Code:
1. Insert the DVD, and in the terminal do:
2. diskutil unmountDisk disk1
3. ls -l /Users/
Find your username in that list and:
4. dd if=/dev/disk1 of=/Users/your-username/Desktop/Shadow_of_the_colossus.iso

The 'diskutil unmountDisk' command will unmount the DVD without ejecting it. 'dd' will create a bit wise copy of the disc.

Warning: 'disk1' was the mounted DVD on my MacBookPro. If you own a MacPro with several DVD drives, it could be 'disk2' or else..

Edit: The ISO created using 'dd' is ca. 200MB larger than the one I created using 'hdiutil', so some info was definitely missing.

Best regards,
onetwo

I did this and Terminal returned "No such file or directory". Any ideas? I do not already have an ISO file to dump to nor do I have something called "dumped_iso". Wasn't sure if that was one of those things you replace with something real on your comp...

All I have is the disc showing up on my Desktop.

thanks and PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

you dont need to make an iso. it'll do that itself, but if you just copied and pasted what he put there it wont work.

1. Insert DVD, and in the terminal do:
2. diskutil unmountDisk disk1
3. dd if=/dev/disk1 of=/path/to/dumped_iso/Shadow_of_the_colossus.iso

the part in part 3 says /path/to/dumped_iso/ISONAME.iso is saying you have to pick where its going. most of the time /Users/*your computer username*/Desktop/my_iso.iso

then dont touch it for like 30 min or until terminal says youre good

Sorry @henryh for not being clear enough! And thanks @mubbsy for clarifying! I'll update my posting.
