The ECM format allows you to reduce the size of a typical CD image file (BIN, CDI, NRG, CCD, or any other format that uses raw sectors; results may vary). ECM works by eliminating the Error Correction/Detection Codes (ECC/EDC) from each sector whenever possible. The encoder automatically adjusts to different sector types and automatically skips any headers it encounters. The results will vary depending on how much redundant ECC/EDC data is present. Note that for ‘cooked’ ISO files, there will be no reduction.

simple GUI for the tech-challenged wannabe gamer ★★★★★

by ratman_6885 – Version 1.0.4 – Sep 11, 2012 – PH

I only have one use for files in ecm format, and that is to play old ps games with. But this free app takes the hassle out of getting them to work. If you wanna play games on psxr like I do, get this. It’s well worth the download. Cheers!

ottimo ★★★★★

Great Compression Tool ★★★★★

by WHAT THE HECK IS THIS!?!?@32 – Version 1.0.1 – Feb 8, 2012 – USA

There needs to be an easier way to de-compress, or at least have some type of gui which states what is coming from and where it is going to. this app does not yet have many downloads yet but I can assure that it is an easier solution to learning the command line functions.

ECM : Outil de compression.




Le format ECM vous permet de réduire la taille d’un fichier d’image CD classique (BIN, CDI, NRG, CCD, ou tout autre format qui utilise les secteurs bruts. Il agit d’éliminer l’erreur de correction / détection des codes (ECC / EDC) de chaque secteur autant que possible. L’encodeur s’adapte automatiquement aux types de secteurs différents et saute automatiquement les en-têtes qu’il rencontre. Les résultats varient en fonction du nombre de données ECC / EDC présentes.
