I’m new to CDFreaks forum and I need some help or advice.
I want to backup some PS2 games as the kids have a way of marking them up so they don’t play.
I have researched and experimented and am getting frustrated - and I also have about 10 coasters for my efforts so far.
I have the swap magic disks and can load them without any problems. But when I tried to copy a PS2 game using DVDfab 5 and play it I get “not a valid PS2 game”. I have various copy programs - alcohol 120%, Imgburn, dvd decrypter, clone dvd2, DVDfab5, etc.
I used alcohol 120% to try to copy using the “clone” option, but it would only get so far and then say “there was a problem with the writing” and aborted the copy. But at that point I believe the program had ripped the disk because it had written two files in the HD folder =

COLLEGEHOOPS2K6.MDS 5 kb
I am not sure where to go from here. I went out this morning and purchased some verbatim disks as they seem to be the recommended ones for PS2 copying. I had used Kodak and Staples brands before.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice I can get.
