I've burnt two different ISO's ive gotten via here and put it in my PS2 and tried to boot off them, but in both cases, the PS2 on boot up recognizes the disc and goes to start booting with the screen going black, but then stays black for a short period then goes to the browser menu. When i select the disc again via browser menu, it just goes black then back to browser menu again.
Any ideas why??
And that PS2 works fine with PS1 games, PS2 games and DVD Movies?
I've just tested to be sure the following formats:
DVD-ROM Movie Region 1 and 4 (local)
DVD-R Movie (Region 0)
PS2 - Original
PS2 - Backup
PSX - Original
PSX - Backup
Audio CD - Original
Audio CD - Backup
And all work fine
The only thing which is acting odd is its not removing the Macrovision protection, as when I switch my PS2's output to RGB output, it will green screen the DVD Movie (which it never used to do), but when i disable RGB output, the DVD looks fine
The ISO will never work with Mac burning apps, please remaster it as bin/cue

Macs can burn ISOs, but the PS2 downloads i've burnt via the Mac previously have all come in .bin/cue format and they worked. I'm not sure of why it would make a difference, but could be to do with the mode of burning 'Toast' does? Although if i knew the why of it all I wouldn't be posting here
the cue file contains an offset,
the ISO image does not maintain that offset.
Burning ISO in Toast, defaults to Mode 1
don't know about offsets BUT
ISO9660 format has been around since first data CDs have appeared (about early 90s). It is a universally supported standard. That is why it does not require extra stuff (like cue sheet) to be interpreted. ISO is an iso even in africa.
Toast program must be goofing it up. Use a different burning prog -- or try the attachment.
PS2 does not read a standard ISO9660. It has a special offset,
that wastes about 21 MB between the TOC and the content...
barf, iso9660 works just fine on playstation 1/2. that's why you can view files on original discs and dupes in your computer.
i think u refer to those idiotic dummy.bin files that are wasting space on every disk.
