Thread: Pits on Final Fantasy 7 Disc

  1. #1

    Default Pits on Final Fantasy 7 Disc

    Any ideas?

    They're two small pits on the back of a PlayStation 1 game, they look like something clamped down on it too hard. I've already taken it in to get buffed out, and they look a lot better than they did, but my computer still can't read it. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    It works just fine in my PS2, but I have to emulate it on my PC because my dad doesn't want the PS2 plugged in (too many things plugged in in my room). That, and I don't have a PS1 memory card, only PS2 cards.

    The physical damage is likely changing how the light reflects, rendering it unreadable. However you are using an emulator and you already actually own the discs, so maybe you should consider getting the ISO's from 'Alternative Sources' and running those.

    I'm scared of getting viruses, though. I do know of some emulation websites (won't say here, against the rules) that I've never had trouble with, but I'm really paranoid about my computer. That, and the "ISO's" they offer come in .rar and .7z formats...

    Well, I can't solve that concern for you, though it's exaggerated. The disc has physical damage and your PC's optical drive won't read it, there's really no 'hack' that'll make it work again. Frankly, I'm impressed that the PS2's optical drive can read it. A different model of PC optical drive may work but it's a long shot.

    Well, I'm trying the ISO thing. I have to download WinZip to get to the ISO inside the .7z file, but hopefully it works. I really want to finish FF7 before the remake comes out...

    Wait, I see you made a thread about making PSN friends, from that I assume you have a PS3. ...Why don't you use the PS3?

    Lol I sold that thing about 9 months ago. I never played it. Ironically, the only games I played were Sly Coopers 1 and 2 and Final Fantasy 7 haha. It didn't seem worth it to keep it just for those three games

    Well, then that's the best I can suggest you do.

    The download is safe, so long as your RAR, Zip or 7z files actually open in the unzipping program, rather than trying to be their own self-executable, there's no virus.
    The ISO isn't going to contain a virus, as the emulator couldn't execute that code.

    The real risk of downloading files, of any sort, from handy 'screen savers', or cheap crappy apps online, to 'other stuff', is executable files for windows, which an PS1 ISO wouldn't contain and you'd never have to execute even if their was one.

    ...Now, an EMULATOR packed with a virus... That's way more plausible. :P

    I only download an emulator after extensive research on what other people have to say, and I only download them from one site (I can trust that site).

    That is good to know, though. I thought viruses can be packed with anything.

    They can certainly be PACKED with anything but they generally need to be executed by the user, at least the sort you would download in a file. There's other kinds that would spread by other means, but those exist entirely outside of the realm of 'be careful what you download'. Like self installing through exploits in online advertisements. Or installed on USB keys and self-execute by Autorun, and then install themselves to OTHER USB Keys to spread to other machines outside of the internet.

    They are often packed inside of key generators or added into the executable for the game itself. They can also be packed into all sorts of crapware which the user could install. You know 'INSTALL THIS, INSTANT FREE PORN STREAMS!' and the like. Of course, any PS1 ISO or really ANY data file for a console game wouldn't COME with a Windows executable, if it did that WOULD be highly suspicious, but if you have just an ISO, or BIN/CUE or other data image format, it's safe.
