    anybody out there that can help,

    I have successfully backed up movies, and a few ps2 games. I ran into a problem with GTA San Andreas and need for speed undergorund 2. The way I modded my PS2 V7 was by using the Slide Card + Swap Magic V3.3 found at, http://www.modchip.com/ps2/slidecard.htm and used Alcohol 120% a message on screen reads not a valid ps2 disc. does anyone know how to fix this deal?

    I used Verbatim DVD-R 4x, but recorded at 2x. I attempted to record at 1x but it did it at 2x by itself

    eh, just give dvd decrypter a go. Seems like you're doin everything right.
    Have your successful movies and games also been on the same media?

    I had the same problem. I can't say this for sure and if anyone knows please reply but it seems to me that higher quality burners have more advanced firm ware the prevents burning some software types. I can't get even a single PS2 DVD backup to work on my Sony DVD burner but 20 backups have worked flawlessly when burnt with my MADDOG.

    Yes, I've used the same media for every back up and I just gave DVD Decrypter a try with no success. I wander if anyone has successfully backed up any of these 2 games. If so, how did they?

    I have backed up GTA:SA with no issues
    The first one with alcohol burned too fast
    (avg 2.9x) It still works loads slow
    And some cutscenes the sound was stutering

    Second time DVD DEcrypter using 1x.
    Works perfectly

    Same media Verbatim 4x+r
    It can be done.
    (ver 7 reads +r well you could try those
    Thats all i use and have 30+ backups)
    (maybe increase your windows pagefile to insure
    your system memory doesnt get too low while burning.)
    Good Luck
