I'm just getting into the whole backing-up games/movies. I recently backed-up a few of my DVD movies, I definitely wasn't quite sure how to do it, but with some help, I'm learning.
I'm wondering is the procedure the same with a PS2 game? I can't see it, since the movies are 'copy protected' then again, I'm not sure if games are protected?
Could someone name a site or two that would help me out!? I don't have a modchip installed yet, but soon enough.
the whole truth
Hey, man i am just like you i have been copying my movies not want to dot the same to my games.I have emaild the company many times but each time they only give me a little information on how to do it so if some one nows the who procedure please write back. :headbang:
seriously....people here mostly already know how to do this and if ya haven't have a chip or a Booting method of your ps2 yet...I suggest you start with google...because you can find better tutorial there....Here is where you ask specific questions only....so if you still have questions....write a couple of them and we'll try to answer it....
most all software outlines with a popup "wizard", the 3 functions of burning.
1. Make an audio cd, that plays in your car's cd player from any music files you have
note: there is no music/cda format for dvd's, so dvd's only have 2 ways to burn
2. Make a "data disc", however windows sees fit to store any files from, your p/c
3. MAKE AN EXACT COPY OF ANY DISC. This one respects ps2 format, a perfect
duplicate of whatever disc you put in to copy, this makes an image of the
original on your hd, then erases it after recording, but you can also do this
yourself, and keep the image (or edit it a bit) for making more duplicates.
this puts that all in win xp's right click menu, and makes copying so ez, you dont need any software at all. read the page.
All right, I'm just going to take couple hours and do some reading on this site. A few questions first, although I'm sure I'll come across them while I'm going through the site.
1)I'm going to order a Matrix Infinity chip. Is it the best chip on the market, value wise. And is it reliable?
2)Media - Vertabim DVD-R - Are they any good? or should I look for a different brand?
3)Does it matter what version I have when it comes to choosing a Chip and media. I think I have a Canadian V7.
1, Infinity is the best, IF you need those extra functions that it offers (otherwise there are cheaper chips with the same quality if you need it for playing games only)
2, Verbatim is a brand, which uses different DVD-R dye's. Usually Verbatim uses quality dye media and highly recommended as one of the best DVD-R media. For cheaper solution you should consider getting Ritek G04 based media.
3, It does matter, old PS2s do not read rewritable (so testing a game/burn is not an option then) newer models reads them fine. Also V7 is said to be one of the BEST ps2 models.
1. yes the v7 will have no trouble for you and the matrix infinity chip. like uns97 said there are cheaper chips out there that does a great job to. but the infinity chip you can flash upgrades on. so stick with that chip in the long run you will truly benifit.
2. dvddecrypter is a great tool to use to burn ps2 games you can download it from here www.dvddecrypter.com its free. all you do is go to mode change to iso read at this time it makes an image of the game on to the hard drive. make sure you name the image so you can find it. after it is done change the mode to iso write go to the locate it read the image to and burn. whole process may take 20 minutes. and your done.
