Last, but not least: new version of GDROM Explorer

Hi everyone,

After a long period of inactivity on my blog, I am finally ready to release a new version of the GDROM Explorer. I spent a lot of time refactoring my code so that new file formats can be easily supported. As of today, this new version supports the .GDI, .ISO, and .BIN image files. I’ve also added a couple unit tests to cover .GDI file parsing errors. The whole list of new features and improvements are in the readme.txt inside the archive.

Please let me know if you encounter any bugs. 

Update: I’ve fixed few bugs… enjoy the quick fixes!

I know that if you are using a gdi file in which it says for a given track that it is a raw image (cdrom mode 1 or 2, i.e. “2352”) whereas the image is actually an iso9660, the program believes the gdi file and doesn’t double check the image file.

I investigated this issue one more time, spent time comparing outputs from others raw2wav conversion programs and it seems that your audio tracks contain noises that cannot be removed. Check the file hashes with tosec database, I’m convinced that the audio tracks weren’t correctly dumped.
