ESR not reading disks (black screen)
After a year or two i finally decided to try out my old ps2 which had fmcb installed from a while back. I have tried to make a backup copy of "The Sims" ps2 game as my old one has froze occasionally when loading saves. Anyway I "think" its a CD and not a DVD (yes i checked the disk and found no DVD logo before you ask :P) and followed the CD to DVD sticky tutorial that has been posted here word for word and burnt it to a shop branded DVD on the slowest speed. I then launched ESR and inserted the disk. Then after it read the disk at the main menu i get a "Invalid media in drive" message displayed next to the status bar and when i select the Launch CDVD button it freezes on a black screen. I've tried using the swap disk trick using the slide card that worked with psx back ups but to no avail.... please help!
Also, is there a simpler way of playing back up ps2 games?
