Hope everyone is doing well, now my problem: Recently my PS2 game started getting a little worn out and acting slow, so I decided to back it up. I looked up the steps on the internet, as well as other sites, and decided to use DVD Decrypter. So I inserted my game (It’s Need For Speed Underground) and went to Mode>ISO>Read and copied the image of my game. Then I patched the game with WinDip (I think its called that) since I read that online games should be patched (although I never use online anyways) and went back to DVD Decrypter then Mode>ISO>Write, put the speed at 1x (Since I read slower is better), inserted my blank dvd-r and burnt it. So far I’ve tried this 3 times and I couldn’t get to work. I tried a Philips DVD-R (4.7GB 1-16x) and I also tried a Verbatim DVD-R (4.7 GB, 1-4X), I even tried a DVD+R (I was desperate), but nothing. I have a modchip, and a fat PS2 if that helps. I can’t figure out why the game wont work, I’m doing everything perfectly. Any help will be appreciated.
Don’t burn them slower, slower generally ain’t better. Try burning a x16 Verbatim at x8 and see if that works. Try using imgburn for reading and writing and also try without using that patcher.
Is this your first time backing up a ps2 game? if so this may be a silly question but your 100% sure you have a modchip installed in your ps2.
What burner are you using as well? one other thing does your backup go to boot, just sits on a black screen or gives you the red screen with text(can’t remember what the text says).
I have not had a problem backing up my ps2 games using imgburn, a pioneer burner and ether verbatim or taiyo yuden dvds.
