ps2 backup problems –
yet another thread like this but what can you do...
i so far burned 2 coasters, MGS3 and Getaway Black Monday
i burned The Punisher succesfully.
dont know why, could it be that MGS3 and Getaway are big files...around 4 gigs
punisher is only 2 gigs.
i used RitekG04 at 2x on dvd decrypter
any utilities i can use to check the quality of the burned disks?
he weirdest thing is i just burned Prince of Persia 2 a few minutes ago and it was succesful...the image file for Prince of Persia 2 is 3.5 gigs.
getaway was 3.9 gigs..MSG3 was 4.3 gigs...is there a connection here?
do you have a modchip? or are you using swap method?
what brand of drive? Benq, liteon, nec??
swap magic 3.3...NEC 3500A.
how do i check the for "PIO" errors or something like that...seen it on the forum but never knew what it meant
me niether what are pio errors... What swap magic disk are you useing
PI/PO errors are properly described in several CD/DVD writing forums, like cdfreaks, cdrinfo or cdrlabs. The more the PI/PO errors are the lower the disk quality is. High PI/PO spikes will result in low readablility and that will stress the laser more. Very high PI/PO rates will result in unreadable sectors and let us not forget these PI/PO spikes and areas get defected easier, sometimes these areas can be easily identified on the disk surface as fingertips, and/or scratches... Nec is unable to do a correct PI scan, you better get a LiteOn drive (DVD ROM is ok aswell, though the result is not perfect) or a a Plextor.
well, i got another dvd drive that came with the desktop set as secondary slave but what utility do i use to check for the errors.
There are the following tools:
Plextools, Plexscan (these are the best to give most correct values) Plextor only
KProbe works with LiteOn drives only
DVDInfoPro used to work with several ATAPI devices
Nero CDVDSpeed... it's the worst.
