L-EC Uncorrectable Error help


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, new guy here. This is my first time using ImgBurn so I have no experience, so I came to you for help. I've been trying to rip the ISO of a Spyro 1 disc, but whenever I reach 88% my disc drive keeps getting the same errors again and again until the reading is aborted. Do you know what the problem is? Here is the log:

Could be a few things going on here.

 

Some PS1 discs simply cannot be read in by ImgBurn and certain hardware.  For instance, on my rig, I cannot image Mega Man 8 from my collection with ImgBurn.  Someone else posted a problem with the same disc.  The solution I found was to try using Alcohol 120% to read to an image file and write that image file.  I believe there is a limited free version of it.

 

Your drive appears to be an LG one.  In the past, LG drives have proven to be not as reliable readers as other drives.  You could try getting a different kind of USB drive, preferably from some other manufacturer besides LG, and see if you have better luck.  You probably won't, though.

 

Your disc may simply have degradated with age.  It may simply no longer be fully readable anymore.  One way you can check, though it is not a foolproof method as this won't copy all of a PS1 game's contents, is to open the disc in File Explorer and attempt to copy and paste all the contents in the root directory to somewhere else.  If it fails to complete, then the disc may be unreadable.  Which trying a new drive would be recommended then, too.
