Yeah. Kudo's to the guys who worked on that Xeonsaga rip. I know it ways a pain in the arse. @#$# Layer Breaks, IlVu Angles--DVD-9's were a nightmare for the movie backup scene before some comprehensive tools came out. Elby has entertained the idea of adding PS2 backup to their latest offering (CloneDVD) but a lot more info on the specifics of how to strip and compress the data and all is needed before they can do any real work on that project. Only way to back up the DV-9 PS2 games is with the rip kits for now.
Let's hope they don't make a big habit of using dual-layered discs anytime soon. The next gen box looks like it's leaning towards BlueRay anyway.....there's another Pandora's box for us to deal with.
If it ain't broke don't try to fix it! But, hell if you can tweak that bastard just a little bit more....hehehe.
