Re: How do I copy Playstation2 games?

Your PS2 has to be modded like Moose said. If it is the easiest way to copy PS2 games is with DVD Decrypter. Insert the PS2 game disc in your drive, start DVD Decrypter, select Mode > Read > ISO and wait till the disc has been copied to your hard disk. Once it's done in DVD Decrypter go to Mode > Write > ISO and load the image file you created. That's all.

Copying Playstation2 games

HI All,
Yes, I'm a newbie. This is probably stupid to all the "Knowledgeable" people. My husband has a playstation2. My grandkids like to "borrow" his games but, they don't seem to come back as loaned. Saying no is not an option. If I could copy them, we could save alot of grief in the marriage. I use CopyDVD2. Can anyone help?

Please answer to my email instead of on a thread. Beckahroo@direcway.com

thanks!

You still haven't answered the most critical question. Does your PS2 have a mod method of some sort (ie modchip, Swap Magic discs, HD Loader/Advance)? If not then there is no possible way that you will get a working backup. Think of it like having software for your PC but no registration key. The game will copy fine but without the required signed boot-up code it will not work (hence the need for the mod method as they provide this).

Re: How do I copy Playstation2 games?

I thought the PC had to be soft modded to reconize PS2 or XBOX Games?

What ? PS2 games have a file structure that can be viewed in a PC without any restriction (except DL games). Xbox original games use M$ own file system, that is invisible in a PC deive under Windows. You either have to use third party software (XISO for example) or install a plugin under Total Commander. As for 1:1 copy, most PS2 games can be copied easily using DVDDecrypter. XBOX games have to be dumped in special drives with modified firmwares, then the image can be burnt to DVD+R DL. Of course these backups will not work without any modification that has to be done on the PS2/XBOX. (it can be either a modchip, softmod, dvd firmware hack, boot disk, etc)

regards, Stephen

Re: How do I copy Playstation2 games?

First of all what mod method are you using? (ie swap discs, HDloader, modchip). You do know your PS2 has to have some sort of mod method in order to read backup discs, right?

Re: How do I copy Playstation2 games?

Some games need rebuilding when you use swap magic like boot disks. If you tell us what game it is, we could help more. Anyway you do not have any special DVD Decrypter version, the free internet version (all were that anyway) will do the job just fine. Of course you have to use quality media that your PS2 can read.

Re: How do I copy Playstation2 games?

Well, the problem is your reader/softare configuration then. PS2 based games are simple DVD-ROM format, so you should be able to read them. Anyway the games also can be copied using Alcohol, Nero or anything like that. If the drive cannot read the disks, then no software will cure that. Try the same disks in another PC, and if that reads them, your DVD reader is not good enough to read these disks, you either have to replace that or do the job on another computer...

regards, Stephen

Re: How do I copy Playstation2 games?

As said, if your disk can be seen in another drive then your original drive is the problem. I suggest to test the disks in anoother PC and as said you can copy them with that, then a repair is needed. By the way, laptop drives usually suck.
