    I just modded my PS2 with a Duo2 chip and wanted to try backing up my kids PSX games. I tried Pac man World using nero at first. Then, Clone CD and finally Alcohol. Everytime I put the game in the PS2 and start it, it shows a bunch of colored boxes, and it thinks that its an audio cd. This PS2 is brand new, so it can't be the laser. Please help, I want to buy a dvd burner to start backing up PS2 games, but I am heistant now that I can't get PSX games to work. By the way, the original pac man game does work in the PS2. Thanks for your help in advance.

    did you burn the game at the maximum speed? try burning it at 1X since since people say it'll work. but if it's showing audio cd, then i don't think you can play that game on the ps2. i had a game that show audio cd also (King of Fighter 99).

    Hi,
    I think with the Duo2 chip, to play psx backups, u have to do this:

    "Press EJECT button to switch on the machine.
    - Insert PSX game in tray, then press and hold RESET button to switch off machine.
    - Now hold the RESET button to start up your machine. Only release the RESET button once the Blue LED light of the Eject button lights up. "

    Hope that helps :)

    No, I do that, in fact, the original games will run, but they can't access the memory card. Backed up PSX games just give me the red screen of death. PS2 games work fine.
