Do you need a DVD burner to burn PS2 Backups? Newbie Help...
Do you need a DVD burner to burn PS2 Backups? Newbie Help... –
Yeah, very stupid question. I have a regular burner that came with my Dell desktop I bought a year ago. It has always worked good with other things.
I have never burned a DVD... Yes, I'll admit it.
Is it possible though? I mean I have 80 Min (700 MB) TDK brand CD-R's, but can I use those to make some PS2 backups?
I am not sure here, is it possible to burn DVD's with a regular CD burner? Is there a catch like how slow to burn or something?
Also, can someone tell me the difference between DVD-R's and DVD+R's? I'd appreciate it. I looked at a lot of Sticky FAQs but I didn't really understand much.
Thanks in advance.
You cannot burn DVDs with a CD writer. You need a DVD burner to do that. Anyway you can use the CD writer to backup CD based PS2 games (not that many these days) and also the PS2 DVD rips can be written with a CD writer. (rip means that some talented guys made a ripped version (no audio or downsampled audio, ripped language files, ripped video or downsampled video, ripped dummy files, etc) of the original DVD based game)
There are two main standards in the recordable DVD world, "+" was developed by HP, Philips, Ricoh, Sony, MS and others while the "-" version was developed by Pioneer, Toshiba, Nec and some more... You can get more info about them at the http://www.dvdrw.com (DVD"+")and www.dvdforum.com (DVD"-") Actually DVD- is more compatible especially if you don't use the DVD+ bitsetting utility. When using that you can set the DVD+R disk to appear as DVD-ROM (as the stamped disk) in readers.
