PS2 Backup DVD

Hi guys,

I searched around the forum and I did not get a good answer for my question.

Basically, I want to know if I can just backup a ps2 game without any trouble. Can I just put the ps2 game in my dvd drive and a dvd-r media in my dvd burner and burn on the fly?

Are there any protections with ps2 games? And is the NEC-2500A a good burner to backup the games?
