    I am trying to backup my PS3 games (and even Blu Ray movies, if possible). Does anyone know a quick way to do this? I've searched the forums but can't find a conclusive answer for PS3 games. I basically want to copy my current games to another CD/DVD for backup purposes.

    Thanks
    Mike

    This might sound stupid,but do you have a Blu-Ray Burner,if you dont you wont be able to back any game or Blu-Ray movie up.You cant copy games to CD/DVD.

    As far as i know,an iso is made and then you burn it to a blank Blu-Ray disc.

    Also there is no way to play a game you have backed up,and there may not be a way for a while yet.

    Yea, there is literally no point what-so-ever in backing up your PS3 games right now, but yes, do you have a Blu-Ray burner? If you don't, it would probably be cheaper to not buy one and just get a second copy of every game you buy... no joke. Blu-Ray burner + Blank Blu-Ray disks = £££

    Thanks guys.

    So, since backing up games is out of the question, will the PS3 play movies that were burned on a blank Blu Ray disc?

    So, if I have a Blu Ray burner, I can backup my movies and watch them but not backup my games and play them? Just want to make sure I understand.

    Thanks

    Mike

    Yes you will be able to play backed up Blu-Ray movies.

    Id wait a few months yet before buying anything.
    At the moment Blu-Ray burners are about £180($360) and blank discs are about £26($52) for a pack of 5.

    It is possible to rip a Blu-ray movie and then re-encode it to fit on a DVD9 (dual layer) or DVD5 (single layer) keeping the HD resolution and be playable on the PS3. My recommendation would be for 1080p definitely use a DVD9. If you're happy with 720p you can get away with a DVD5 but a DVD9 would of course be better. There is a lot to learn in order to achieve this. If you're up to the challenge, read here: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/621809


    But... I ask you one favour, please read through the thread before asking questions. :-D
