    I'm sorry if these questions have been answered before (I'm sure they have)

    1. I have no problem backing up my original dvd ps2 games. They play fine.

    2. I can't get cd backups to work.

    so what is the best program to use, I have tried alcohol 120%, nero and cdclone.

    I have a dvd region x disk that works with dvds, should this work with cds as well?

    I only have cd-rw at the moment, could this be the problem?

    the program always says it's complete but they don't play, I don't understand what else I should be doing, I have read a lot of forums but nothing is working, can anyone help me please?

    cd-rw is most likely the problem. my v9 won't read them.

    Ok, I am not really familiar with the dvd region x disk, but here are some basic tips. Use quality CD-R's, I have heard people having problems with CD-RW's. I have heard good things about verbatim data life plus, Sony, and Fuji brand names. I use Memorex Black and use CDRWIN, they work 99% of the time. Here is a little tutorial on how to burn a PS2 game using CDRWIN...

    [bold]Copying PS or PS2 games using CDRWIN[/bold]

    Download a demo copy of CDRWIN 4.0a, because that is what I am going off of here.
    1. Open/run the CDRWIN program.
    2. From the CDRWIN main interface menu click on the 'extract disc' button.
    3. Select the 'disc image/cuesheet' radio button (1).
    4. Enter the path location of the where you would like the image file created and stored. Input an image file name and remember to ensure that the file has a .bin extension. Name the file appropriately ensuring you do not use spaces and the name is under eight characters. (2)
    5. Set to 'copy raw' for all PlayStation games (4).
    6. Set the 'error recovery' button to 'ignore' (5).
    7. Disable 'jitter correction' (6).
    The table of contents on the disc determines how to configure the setup of CDRWIN. If, in the table of contents box, you observe either a) one Mode 2 Track or b) one Mode 2 Track and one Audio Track, set 'subcode analysis' to 'auto'. If multiple audio tracks appear, set the 'subcode analysis' to 'fixed'.
    8. Set 'read retry count' to a number of at least 50.
    9. Set the 'data and audio' speeds to '1X' or '2X' for best results.
    10. Click on the 'start' button and the copying process will begin.
    11. Once the disc has successfully extracted return to the main CDRWIN menu and click on the 'record disc' button.
    12. Select your CD-Writer form the pull down menu.
    13. Click the 'load cuesheet' button. Select your created image file and choose the *.cue file that was automatically created in the extraction process.
    14. Double-check that the proper *.cue file was selected. Its name will appear in this field.
    Set recording speed to '1X' for best results.
    15. Click on the 'start recording' button to begin the recording process.

    PimpDawg, thanks for the info, i will try that.

    The region x disk is the disk that lets the playstation 2 play the backup copies of my original games, or ones that are not australian region 4.

    Again thanks for the information, if I have trouble can I send you a message?

    Dude, was it you that asked this a million times, and sly told you off for it, put the dvd in your computer and check the size if you are unsure, or google around or swapmagicfix has some.
