I still stand firm that you should take advantage of the larger dvd-rs and put your .rar PS2 games on the dvd-r's instead of a bunch of cd-r's. 1 DVD-R = 7 CD-R you do the math. If you put them on CD-R's now you have a stack of CD-R's to find a place for. You can get generic DVD-R's for around a buck each...
I already use Balto's method. Rar the images. If you really want to secure the quality of the image, its much better to archive it in Rar form than just creating 2 seperate images.
But also, it makes more sense to burn those Rar's onto DVDR. As data backup. Using CDR means having to copy all of the Rar files back to the HDD before unraring. Plus, most games will take multiple cd's. But if you fill up the 4.7GB of a DVDR with 50MB rar files, you can put multiple games on one DVDR and unrar them straight from the disk.
Easier to archive, and costs about the same if you use quality good enough for just storing the files (data disk burning).
One hint though: Always always open the rar files from the DVDR after you burn and do a test on the archive before you delete the image al-together. One small CRC mis-read, and the whole archive is trash and wasted space and money, not to mention a real pain if you have to go acquire the image again if you deleted it before testing.
yaa but for all the troble that this will cause ya, why not just rent it agen, or better yet barrow from a friend.....
any ways how offten do any of you wind out distroying /lossing a back up? if it's a prob. just get a cd walet.
Wow. Never even thought to backup my backups on backup discs! Any recommendations as to what media to use? I was thinking maybe Ritek silvers because they're cheap but still good.
I use cd'rs for every thing, cause i get all mine for freee!!!![
