    when using DVD decrypter, you are instructed to burn the MDS file not the ISO file, in fact DVD decrypter will correct you if you choose to burn the ISO file. but when you use image patcher, at the end of the instructions it tells you to burn the ISO file!!!! I can understand that the ISO file is the one you put the disk ID in but how do burn the game now????
    PLEASE HELP!

    the mds points to the iso, so when you burn it, your still burning the iso.

    could it be because i'm using the wrong disk id utility?
    when I use my disk id utility on the origional copy to retrieve the disk id, the id is always the same for every game; 00 00 00 00 9c
    why is that, am i using the wrong disk id utility???

    you said take it out, you need to be more specific. You swap for the id util, but you have to hit eject to put in the original disc.

    a couple of questions in my mind...
    what swap disk should be used to boot the utility disk?
    should the utility disk be burned on a dvd-r or cd-r? is there a difference
    what exactly is the discid.rar and where can i find instructions on how to use it?
    thanks for the help

    when you put in burned discs, use the slider.
    when you put in original discs, USE THE EJECT BUTTON.

    Sly, I downloaded the id inserter and extractor programs but they say corrupted files when I try to extract them. can you email me the programs. also I have a new slim ps2 modded with matrix, how would I get the id off my originals with this type of ps2.

    please send them to dpayne223@yahoo.com
