How to introduce myself... i am just a uncle, living in paris france (sorry for my bad english) , who loves good quality music and has a collection of SACD records (around 150).
I offered my nephews a PS3 in 2007
As today they are older and interested in more recent models, they gave me back the console by telling me that there was a possibility to digitize the discs with this PS3, "just do it yourself Tonton, you just need to read some tutorials and find right web sites"...
So I read, I read...
I am very happy to have discovered this forum, topic: 'SACD ripping using a PS3' on AudioCircle website.I am aware of all the efforts and all the work that this represents.I thank the participants of this forum and especially the specialists for their explanations.
As I'm far from being an expert, your help would be really useful.
But I know, It seems I am very late, several years late (too late ?) and may be that subject is now obsolete in 2017 and each SACD owner may have already saved his/her collection of records.?
The current situation:
My old PS3, CECHC03 series, was in CFW version 3.55 Rebug and cleaned all the games. But in this configuration when I try to play a SACD that I saw in the PS3 music menu as a CD, SACD 2 CH and SACD Multi, I get an error for each track regardless of the disc.
When I reinstall the original software Sony OFW 3.55 everything works again and I can play and listen all my SACDs.
So it's a return to the beginning
Today most of the links listed on specialized websites are too old (2011-2014), and they all seem broken. What would help me is to get links still valid today for:
1- the firmware PS3 cfw 3.55 known to work
2- the sac-ripper.pkg and the keys if they are still required.
3- the last sacd_extract_0.3.xx for windows (10?)
Do not hesitate if it is possible to send me directly by email those software that work on your installation.
Thank you in advance for all the help and support you could give me
