Hi! thx for the tutorial katananja it works fine!!! converted contra shattered soldier CD to DVD, burned at 6x with Imgburn on a maxell 16x dvd-r, tested on a fat ps2 39001 NTSC console, running ESR of course.
Just as a note for those who want to create the 1GB dummy file on win XP go to start click on run, then type command (or type cmd if you like), you'll get the command prompt, type fsutil file createnew c:\z.z 1073741824 hit the enter key on ur keyboard (duh) and the file it's created to your C: root (or you can type a different location on your hdd).... duh already on the tutorial right... yah but if you see the large number it is because fsutil recognize it as bytes so 1073741824bytes is 1GB (note on the tutorial 1024M fsutil won't recognize this)
Katananja you rule!
