I am a volunteer of the redump.org project, the goal of our website is to archive game CDs in the best possible quality. Unfortunately, this site requires only DiscImageCreator to be used for CD and DVD dumping. Unfortunately, my drive is incompatible with this program. I checked all the firmware for it that I found and none is compatible with the indicated program. I miss scrambled mode (opcode 0xBE) support. I have a question. Is it possible to disassemble the drive software and modify it to enable the desired mode? Unfortunately, I am completely new to it and I am a bit afraid of damaging the drive, but maybe it would be possible to find the indicated opcode in the firmware? My drive is a Toshiba TS-L632H.
OK, a lot has changed in this topic, I learned a lot of new things, so I can write all I need: Well, from what I figured out, I need the "scrambled mode" which means that the drive reads data sectors as audio sectors. So the only thing I need is to find a place in the firmware where the BE opcode checks whether a given sector is a sector with data and disable this check (and I also found a document - https://aircconline.com/ijcsit/V14N4/14422ijcsit01.pdf) Well, in practice, I don't really know where to start. There is some bootloader in the firmware of my drive that I can't break through and most likely all these BE type opcodes are in the bootloader. I reversed some of this firmware, but I still don't know where to look for these BE opcodes. The architecture of the firmware I determined was most likely the 8051
