I am having problems creating PS2 backups on my system using Alcohol 120%:
XP Pro, 1gb RAM, Plextor 708a dvd writer.
I can image the DVD ok, burn the DVD ok (I have tried 2 brands of DVD-R media, Traxdata and an unbranded) each written at differrent speeds including 1x but still no success. My PS2 goes to the red/pink screen with the msg 'insert a plystation or playstation 2 format disc' and the game will not boot.
I have tried updating my DVD writer firmware, changing write speeds and changing the media...I am stuck!
Is there a possibility the image is not correct? I have tried 'simulate' but its not that the disc is not writing just not reading.
I am now thinking it's my PS2...how can I prove this? Also,
1) Is there a way to change the speed I read the disc when making the image?
2) Is it only a certain type of chipped PS2 that runs DVD backups? (it runs backup CD's perfect...).
3) Is it possible both brands of DVD-R are not compatible with my PS2?
Your skill and experience would be greatly apreciated in helping me sort this problem...it's driving me nutts!!!
Thanks in advance,
