PLEASE help, i need a good tutorial!
PLEASE help, i need a good tutorial! –
I have been trying this for weeks now, and i still havent got it working.
Im trying to copy PS2 games, full DVD ISOs.
I have a Pioneer DVDRW 104.
I wanted to copy the game like i would a psx game, into 1 bin and cue file, i have tried everything and nothing.
- When i use CDR-Win i get errors and it wont even rip.
- When i use isobuster it will rip but when i open the ISO in nero it says its a very small track size (like 200MB ish) even though the ISO is 4.5GB, this will not burn a working copy!
- When i use PrimoDVD i can rip, but cannot burn (When i try and burn i get a BSOD saying Hardware error.....thats it) and yes i have the updated engine
- When i copy the files through windows (ie Cut & Paste) and attempt to compile with winISO, i get weird errors and the same as above (very strange track size)
- When i use CDGenPS2 v2.0 i get everything ripped and working well, but the same thing with the track size (both bin/cue and iso)
- I Cant figure out how to use Sony CD/DVD Gen
Anything i missed? Dont think so.....well anyways, after wasting 15 or so DVD's on screw ups (yes 15, thats a lot of money on DVD-R's!) i need help!
Can someone PLEASE tell me in detail how to copy a game to my harddrive (in bin/cue or iso form) and burn to dvd (please inc any non-default settings i need to use)
If you can give links to the software i need it would be helpfull, if not just tell me what its called and ill be able to find it!
- CDRWin can't handle DVDs - CDs only.
- Nero sux for DVDs anyway. Dump it.
- Did you read the PrimoDVD tutorial Charlie stickied right up above here?
What OS are you running?
Are your ASPI drivers at least v4.60?
Is the IDE controller in your PC capable of handling PIO Mode 4 or DMA MultiMode 2 that the 104 needs?
Is your 104 the Master drive on your Secondary controller?
Did you make the mistake of trying to use an 80-wire ATA-100 cable with the 104 instead of a normal 40-wire ATA-33/66 cable?
Is your 104 at the latest firmware revision?
Could be the laser in your PS2 doesn't like Memorex media (which has always been kinda iffy anyway.)
Get a TDK, Verbatim, Pioneer, or Apple blank and try another burn at 2x.
Also make sure your DVR-104 has the latest firmware in it. Find it here:
- LOL Forget ever trying to cut and paste files through Windows to create a DVD disc. Like Rocky the Flying Squirrel sez: That trick never works...
- Again, you CAN'T use the Bin/Cue format with DVDs. That for CD-Rs only. Got it?
- Why bother with Sony CD/DVD Gen? You're just trying to copy a DVD to DVD-R, not author your own game disc...
Review what I've outlined above and get back with the details. You're problem sounds like hardware, not software...
Ok here goes:
- Im on Windows XP
- ASPI layers are 4.6/4.7 (ASPI32 and WNASPI32 are 4.7 the others are 4.6(1021)
- Im not sure on the IDE controller, but i would imagine so (Abit AT7 + Raid http://www.abit.com.tw/abitweb/webjs...MODEL_NAME=AT7)
- Its a Msater drive, but im not sure which IDE its in....
- The cable is a ATA-60/100 should i change it?
- the firmware is 1.20, re-flashing now just in case though
I will check on what youve said so far and get back to you, thanks for the advice bro.
P.S when i extract the track to ISO through Primo i get the same thing again with the track size.....
P.P.S Tha copy & paste trick did actually work for me, i copied al off FFX's files to my hd and put them in a nero DVD-ISO compilation and that worked.....its the only way ive found to do it that works so far
P.P.P.S Is there any way to make Primo DVD spew out 1 file instead of X amount of 1.99GB ones? Im on XP so it will read it ok.
DVD-R Media –
Ok ive looked around and these are the medias i can get a hold of (i cant afford stuff like verbitam, if im going to pay Â£10 for 1 dvd-r disc i may as well just buy another original)
- Intenso DVD-R General Use 4.7 Gb Media
- White Label 4.7gb (General Purpose) DVD-R
- DATASAFE CLASSIC branded matt silver-topped (Generation 3) 4.7GB DVD-R disc
- Discplanet 4.7Gb DVD-R
- Infiniti 4.7Gb DVD-R
- Vivastar 2X DVD-R General
Which of those (If any) would be the best to use?
I can't advise you LN as we don't have those brands over here in the States. Best hope Charlie or one of your countrymen reads this thread and can offer you some sound advice.
The only thing I can say to help you make a selection is to ask if any of those are honestly 2x certified and to see how dark the dye is on the bottom side. See if you can buy just one or a small sample pak to test out so you're not pissing away all your weekend pub money...
Yes, I would change that cable as I tried using one with my A03 on a dual-boot box with Win98 and XP Pro and it went wacky. Use a standard 40-pin ATA-33/66 cable.
Then check the controller in Control Panel to see if the drivers let you configure the individual primary and secondary channels. If so be sure the secondary is set at PIO Mode 4 or DMA Multi Mode 2. Turn any RAID funtionality off too. If nothing else, you may have to forego a few more pints and get a newer PCI IDE controller for your box (which is what I had to do with my older Asus P5A m/b as the onboard IDE was too pokey and didn't support ATA-100.)
I don't know what all this ISO stuff is you're doing. The PrimoDVD tutorial relates to .GI files and that is the proven method.
You can't avoid the 3 files and why would you wish to? It's an"internal" matter that, as I believe you understand, allows non NTFS users to copy away. Just hand over the .GI file withouth brackets for burning as per the tutorial.
