    I have been trawling the Internet trying to learn how to burn a PS2 game.. I have DVD SHRINK and RecordNow DX, are they enough to burn a PS2 game? I regularly burn dvd movies but can't seem to burn PS2 Games. I've also tried using Alcohol 120 but to no avail. If someone could be so kind as to provide some basic instructions on how to burn PS2 games I would be eternally grateful!!! I've read a lot of the threads but can't find one with what I need so I apologise if there is already a thread with this answer.

    1. you do have a modded ps2 don't you
    2. are you using high quality media
    3. are you using dvd+r or dvd-r and what version is your ps2
    to create a backup with record now you can either just do a disc to disc copy(not on the fly) or you can create an image file then burn it back to dvdr

    Devilhunt, thanks for taking the time to reply. Yes my PS2 is mod chipped and I have many "backed up" copies of other PS2 games I have purchased. I am using Shintaro dvd-r 4 speed 4.7gb recordable discs. Being in Australia I have no idea whether that means anything to you! I have no idea what version my PS2 is..I purchased it 2 & half years ago for what it's worth. I will try and create an image file back up (if I know how to!) and see what happens. I think have done this before but I'll wait and see.

    Devilhunt, please help!!!! I read all your other advices and I have tried to make a back up by doing what you said in DVD decrypter. I put my game in, choose ISO write and select a source and destination but the "decrypter" under file always stays greyed out meaning I cannot choose this option. Why is this so? And when I try to make a simple back up on Record Now Dx I do as you recommend and choose File, new job, disc to disc copy but when I put in my blank dvd-r 4x 4.7gb disc it gives me an error message saying this type of disc is the wrong format???

    Whay am I doing wrong?????

    First of all u have to know what version your ps2 is and whether the originaly game is cd_rom or dvd-rom. It also depends on what kind of chips you have. Read the manuall and figure out out if it works with ur ps2 verion and whether it compatable with dvd-rom or cd-rom.

    well thats my best

    even though somebody (ozzy1, I MEAN YOU) doesn't want me to post this, heres how to do it. to download the the programs, go to google.com and search "free download for" and the program name. here it goes.

    Introduction

    Want to make backups of your Sony PlayStation 2 Games. No problem! You will learn how to make copies of your personal Sony PlayStation 2 games. (We do not condone making copies of PS2 games you do not own). The question is always asked, "Do I need a ModChip?" Well, yes. ModChips are required if you want to play backups of PlayStation 2 discs that you create. If you do not have a ModChip you can click here to get one at a reasonable cost. They are worth the small investment.

    Hardware Requirements
    DVD Player
    DVD Writer
    Blank DVDR Discs
    The Original PS2 Game (Not a copy of a copy)
    ModChip
    Minimum 1.5GB free hard drive space (2GB or more of free hard drive space recommended)
    Recommended Pentium4 or AMD Athalon CPU (not required)


    Software Requirements - Downloads
    DVD Decrypter - Rips the DVD movie, creates an ISO DVD image file and burn that image file back to blank DVD media

    PrimoDVD2 - Download and install this program

    PPF-O-Matic - Used to apply to apply & create PPF patches to your copied PlayStation 2 Games




    Note: Presented here are two methods for making backups of your PS2 Games. The first method is with DVD Decrypter. The second method is with PrimoDVD. Both are presented here so you can decide which is easier for you to use.



    What You Should Know About PS2 Games

    PS2 games come in two formats: CD-Rom & DVD-Rom.

    This poses a minor problem: If your PS2 game is on a CD-ROM, then go HERE

    If the PS2 game is on a DVD-ROM, you will need a DVD-ROM Burner and blank DVD-Rs.

    This tutorial assumes that the PS2 game is on a DVD-ROM. If your PlayStation Game is on CD-ROM, then go HERE


    Identifying a CD-ROM Verses a DVD-ROM PS2 Game

    Each original PS2 disc will have either CD-ROM or DVD-ROM stamped on the disc label and printed on the covers another way to tell is by looking at the bottom of the disc, a PS2 CD-ROM is blue and a PS2 DVD-ROM is silver.



    Section 1 - Ripping Your Your DVD PS2 Games Using DVD Decrypter

    Step 1 - Create a folder on your hard drive and name it VIDEO_TS. (i.e. C:\VIDEO_TS)
    Step 2 - Insert your PS2 Game Disk in your DVD-ROM.
    Step 3 - Insert your blank DVD-R into your DVD-R
    Step 4 - Launch DVD Decrypter. DVD Decrypter will automatically read your PS2 Game Disc. See Figure 1.1



    Figure 1.1 - The DVD Decrypter Control Panel



    Step 5 - Select the ISO Mode and then Read R. (This step is to change the ripping mode) Figure 1.2


    Figure 1.2 - Selecting ISO/Read Mode



    Step 6 - Select a Destination. From the destination box, you have to select a filename and directory where to store the ISO image that DVD Decrypter will create for you. See Figure 1.4.



    Figure 1.4 - Selecting a Destination



    Step 7 - Navigate to the folder you created in Step 1 (i.e. C:\VIDEO_TS), give your PS2 Game a name. Then click the Save button. See Figure 1.5


    Figure 1.5 - Naming Your PS2 Game



    Step 8 - Copy the PS2 Game to your hard drive. After setting the destination filename, simply click the copy symbol in bottom of the window and DVD Decrypter will start ripping the game and creating a DVD image file to your HDD. See Figure 1.6


    Figure 1.6 - Starting the Ripping Process



    Step 9 - The ripping process may take between 15 - 60 minutes depending on your computer configuration. You will be presented with a progress panel as shown in Figure 1.7. (During the Ripping process do not use your computer or run any other programs)



    Figure 1-7 - DVD Decrypter Rip Progress Panel



    Step 10 - Upon completion of the ripping process you will be presented with the panel shown in Figure 1-8. You will also find an image file (ISO file) with the game name you gave. This file will have an *.ISO extension on it. See Figure 1-9. This ISO file can be burned directly to a DVD-R using DVD Decrypter.


    Figure 1-8 - Rip Process Completed




    Figure 1-9 - The ISO Image File





    Section 2 - Burn Your DVD to a Blank DVD-R Using DVD Decrypter

    Step 11 - Burn the image to DVD. After the ripping process has finished, you simply go to Mode menu again and select Write under ISO selection. Figure 1.10.


    Figure 1.10 - Selecting ISO/Write Mode



    Step 12 - In the Source section of DVD Decrypter, click on the small folder icon and select your movie from the directory you created in Step 1 (the ISO image) from your hard drive and click Open. Figure 1.11 and Figure 1.12


    Figure 1.11 - The Source Section





    Figure 1.12 - Selecting Your PS2 Game Image (ISO) File



    Step 13 - Insert your blank DVD-R into your DVD-R burner and click the copy icon and wait for a veeeery loong time :) Figure 1.14



    Figure 1.14 - Burning Your Game to DVD-R




    Section 3 - Burn Your PS2 Games Using PrimoDVD (Alternate Procedure)

    1. Download and install PrimoDVD2. Launch the program.

    2. When you start PrimoDVD2 you will get the PrimoDVD Starter window, just click the "Go to Full Application" button (A).



    3. In the Left of this window it will list your drives, select your DVD burner and right click (B).



    4. In this menu select "Build Global Image" (C).



    5. In this window leave all default settings except for the following:

    a) In the Global image box type the destination & name of the image file to be created (D).
    b) In the Reading Speed box select MIN (D).

    6. Click the "Build" button and leave your PC for a while and you will be left with the image file(s) (E).



    7. Insert a blank quality DVD-R, go to Full Application window again and click on "Global Image or Other Image" icon (F).



    8. Double click your DVD burner so a red arrow appears next to it (G).

    9. Select your image file (H).

    10. Set write speed to the lowest setting (x1 if possible) (J).



    11. Select "Test and if OK Record" (once you have successfully done a few you can just select "Record" but it is best to test the first few you do) (K).

    12. Click the red record button (L).



    13. Go have a cup of tea. When the process is complete you will have a backup copy of your PS2 game.

    rusty, u seem like ur a lot of help but i still have a couple questions. i have both nero 6 and dvd decryptor and i could follow ur instructions on how to burn without a problem. however, b4 i purchase a mod chip or swap disc (i'm leaning towards the modchip cuz swapping disc everytime is jus plain annoying). anyway i have 2 questions...

    1. i only have a dvd+r burner which could only burn dvd+r discs and in your instructions u only mentioned dvd-r discs. can i still make ps2 dvd backups with dvd+r discs? if so, how? if the 2 type of discs work the same way jus let me know so i can stop my research and purchase a mod chip now.

    2. if dvd+r/-r discs do not burn the same way, what modchip would u suggest so that it is at a decent price and compatible with my v7 ps2 and dvd+r discs?

    ps - anyone else who knows what they're talkin about can also shed some light so i can burn my way to hell. =] no pun intended.
