It's been a long time since I've made backups of my PS1 games for use on my modded console and I'm pretty sure I used my CD burner to backup Suikoden II in the past. However, I can't remember which software I was using or which write method.
My CD burner supports burning at x1-x4 but can't burn with RAW DAO (only DAO, RAW SAO, RAW SAO+SUB and TAO) According to my research I shouldn't have been able to make successful backups without RAW DAO.
My questions are therefore:
- Would it be technically possible to burn a backup PS1 game using my CD burner?
- If so which write method should I be using?
- Which software should I be using?
- Will any of the above change if I am burning protected PS1 games?
- Is there anything else I should watch out for burning my PS1 games with this burner?
