Help w/ Soulcalibur ii
OK, Ive used Alcohol, record now max, and I still cant copy soul calibur ii. I did not use any patches for the game. I have a PS2 V4 with DMS3 installed. Whenever I put the copy in it reads it as a PS2 disc, but i get an unable to read disc error. Any ideas what it might be? I dont want to waste more DVD-Rs. I'm using Ritek G04s btw and burning at 2x.
I have made an image of Soul Caliber II, but I have not burned it yet. I will burn it tomorrow and see if I have problems.
I'll let you know.
Ok, so I couldn't sleep. So I went ahead and burned Soul Calibur II.
Everything worked fine. I had an image that I had created using Alcohol 120% v1.4.1. Image burned fine onto a Ritek G03 at 2x. I have a Sony DRU-500AX burner. It ran fine, and I kicked plenty of ass by the way, on my V7 PS2. I'm using a Magic 3.1 modchip.
Have you tried burning the game onto an RW disc? I would give that a shot before you make more Ritek Brand Coasters. Assuming your burner supports it.
Good luck to ya!
IM using a pioneer 106 drive. Ive used DVD+RW media, and the G04. Still no luck. I did use alcohol btw. I'm worried it has something to do with my V4 PS2. The thing is the laser on my V4 is new. I sent it back to Sony before I installed the modchip. Any other ideas guys? I'm thinking it might not be a burning issue, but a laser one.
Do you have any friends with modded PS2s? If so, have you tried your copys on theirs?
I'd start with the simple things like making sure your disc is clean, as well as your laser. Cause you stated it does recognize it as a PS2 disc. I imagine something like that could mess it up.
Is this the only game that has this problem? Have you used other backup games on your PS2?
Sorry I don't have a lot of answers, just a lot of questions. Good luck.
Try burning on DVD+R instead of DVD+RW
You should be using DVD-R, not DVD+R
OK, I just tried burning devil may cry on dvd, and it shows up as a PS2 disc. What ive noticed is when i hit the power button on the ps2 it automatically goes to the browser window. When i select browser and select the cd/dvd icon it pauses for a while and says unable to read disc. I'm using dvd-r G04s.
Are you sure you are booting to the right mode? I am unfamiliar with the DMS3, but you need to hold a certain button to boot to different modes. Look at this picture if you're not sure.
Are you doing this correctly? I get a similar error if I boot my Magic 3.1 to the wrong mode.
ps2 mode is automatic/default so there is no need to hold any buttons
