    So I've installed the program, put in a game, launched the program, selected the first option, then the first option again, pressed O to being, it starts the digital manual and stops there. It says not to touch anything, so I don't, but how long is this suppose to take? After 10 minutes, it's still at the digital manual! If I cancel everything and launch MaiDumpTool again, it will start dumping the game, but only a few MBs of it, not the entire thing.

    So what am I doing wrong here? I didn't have the problem with Vitamin.

    without sourcing the games....

    Possibility:
    Bad DL or extraction
    did you put it in the mai folder?
    what game is it and how large is it... granted shouldnt really matter I done 3-4 gb game and didn't take that long. All it doing is moving the folder to the right location and doing the correct edit.
    Which MaidumpTool you are using?

    I thought all the games were compatible with MAiDumpTool

    I'm trying to dump my own games, not install games I got from the Internet
    Games I try to dump are creating a folder in the Mai folder

    ok...

    The last English version that I found here: https://github.com/LioMajor/MaiDumpToolEN/releases

    i ment like linking to the actual pirated games.... since it not allowed on this forum.

    I wasn't really looking at the mai menu I didn't see you actually was ripping the game yourself instead of installing. So... unfortunally I personally didn't haven't try to rip any game with Mai yet I can't really offer more assistants only with Vitamin a little.

    So you might need to wait for someone else to post and I try to do a test rip eventually...

    What game is it still? the game in question might have issue with ripping.

    I forgot
    No, not all games can be dumped by Maidump. There are quite a few that have issues being dumped altogether, so we need to know what game it is.

    You are not using a USB-drive with a PSTV by any chance?
    For me every game I tried worked so far, but as soon I used a USB-drive it failed.
