I am a new subscriber to this site although I have been reading all the forums for many months now, and I would like a question answered for me once and for all, if possible?
I have a ps2, fitted with the fliptop lid and swap magic disc. I bought this after my young son, (now nearly 3 yrs old) was frequently found with a game disc in his mouth/messy hands and thus breaking them. So I took it upon myself to buy a means to backup my games following many re-buys of my broken games.
That brings me to my question…
Which DVD burner would be the best to make backups of my games?
This will be the main reason for the purchase, although I would also like to backup my movie collection I suppose. Although I do not have a CD writer, and this drive would also be used for this purpose, it is not a primary concern.
I have read all the review articles and also many of the forums, and heard many sides of the debates. However, not many have related to backing up PS2 games. (Some of the articles go into this a little.)
Can anyone out there recommend a writer, and explain their reasons, and also any software they use?
My current thoughts are with either the NEC 2500 for its writing ability or the LiteOn 812 for its apparent ability to get past the copyright. Also, DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink and then either Nero or Alcohol sound like the way forward to actively rip and then burn the games???
Please can anyone advise
Thanks in advance to all.
