    Okay, first let me say that I've read through quite a few messages and I seem to be misunderstanding something. If I buy a DVD-r will I still have to go into a program on my computer and change around all the movies to make the file smaller? I hope not. I have $200 to spare, and I want to get a DVD recorder to backup my PS2 games. I'm hoping to get one that works with all versions of PS2 games, does anyone know of a good recorder that will fit my needs? I don't want to buy one to find that it doesn't do what I wanted. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    YES !! Most movies are greater than 4.7GB in size. Unless of course you don't mind splitting them over 2 discs.

    As for backing up you PS DVD games, i am not aware that any burner is worse than any other in this respect. They all do a pretty good job. Finding the right software and media is slightly more challenging.

    The latest Sony DRU 500A seems very popular, but does seem to going through a few teething problems at the moment.

    Sorry for taking time in replying.

    How big are the normal video games? Much bigger I assume. So what would be the best software to go with it.

    I do believe that "normal" video games are not a problem, other than you do need to have your PS2 chip modified of course.

    You can do a direct copy of a PS2 game with nero. You also need to mod you PS2.

    Good Luck

    go here to find out what movies will fit on 1 DVDR. Some can be backed up fully, some movie only and some have to be reencoded or split to 2 dvdrs. http://members.optushome.com.au/cdromguide/

    All PS2 games will fit on a DVD-r. The biggest i've seened so far is Vice City which was a tad over 4gigs.

    Auto insert notification off. all dvd based games minus like 3 are smaller than 4.37 gigs!
