    I am to burn an ISO-file.
    But things doesnt seem to be as it once was.

    Before when burning CD-r (cue-file) I could set
    the alcohol to "Playstation 2" when burning.

    But that option doesnt seem to exist now
    when burning DVD ?! shouldnt it be there ?

    Where can I read the EXACT steps to burn
    a ISO file to DVD-r.. in Alcohol as well as
    in other programs ?

    one of the simplest programs to use to burn your iso file to dvdr is dvd decrypter just select mode iso write, browse to were your image file is stored on your hard drive, select your write speed, click on the write button(image of harddrive to disc) also dont think the playstation 2 option is avalible when burning iso files in a120 as it's not needed, just use the image burning wizard

    the other options are for ripping dvd movies and for burning your iso file you don't have to worry about them, just go across the top menu's to were it says mode, click it, go down to were it says iso, then were it says write click it, browse to were your iso file is stored, click it, click open,select your writer and your burn speed, click the burn button

    In my opinion, I don't understand why you just don't download DVD Decrypter? It's free and extremely easy to use. Just click, rip, and burn.

    I did that..
    I used DVD Decrypter
    and burned down THUG on it (Tony Hawk Underground)

    Then I go to my PS2.

    1. turns my p2 on
    2. inserts Swap Magic DVD 2.0
    3. "Insert Screen" appears
    3. I do the SWAP-fix and turns in my Ritek DVD-r in.
    4. And I hit the X
    5. Now the disc is being read for perhaps two-three minutes, the animated "sky" freezes during that time.. and suddenly I get a pink/red border.. And my hope is dead.

    What can I have done wrong ?
    DO I NEED a TOC-dvd inbetween the Swap Magic DVD and the Backup-DVD ?

    I also spent a lot of time trying to get "Swap Magic" to work on my V.7 PS2. After an enormous amount of frustration, grief, and agony, I finally decided to have a mod chip professionally installed: www.norcalmods.com is the company I chose.

    "Swap Magic" may work well for some, but I simply hate it with a passion. So do yourself a favor and forget about all this swap BS, and have a modchip installed. You'll be glad you did.

    When I use DVD Decrypter, after making the ISO I want to make a backup using a DVD-R disc. On the bottom of the screen, it show this message Device Not Ready(Medium Not Present). What does that mean? And what can I do so I can backup my ps2 games
