Gael360 released a new version of his tools to dump
Xbox 360 discs with a PC DVD-drive using an hot-swap method (means
you'll have to open your drive – see previous news). This is a translation from french to english of what he said on the gueux forums about the new release:
just released a big update of my tools, you will now be able to find
the 'magic number' immediatly, without having to scan an unknown Xbox
So there's no longer a difference between known and unknown games, they will all be detected/dumped the same way.
advantage of this method is that you will be able to use wx360 directly
to open the content of the DVD without having to dump it first. After
doing the hot-swap you'll just have to open wx360, select the DVD-drive
and click the DVD icon.
wxRipper will thus have a feature to find
the 'magic number' immediately, without scanning the Xbox 360 DVD. The
features related to dumping did not change.
