My backup of FF12 always crashes at the same point. The screen goes black after entering the area, but the music stays playing. The game works fine up until that point. I hear some scratching noises coming from the PS2 (v14, CC1.2lite). The disc is a Prism DVD-R, and has no scratches - I've made backups with the same media and burner and haven't had any problems.
Any ideas? Could it have been a bad image?
