    No.
    You have nothing to worry about.
    Just make sure you get games that arent scratched up too bad.
    (unless you rent 10 games a day (one every hour)
    On your game pass and then they may get suspicious.)

    Jizmak is correct. There is no possible way of telling if your rented ps2 disc has been in a dvd-burner or not. However, like Jizmak said, if you try renting more than a couple every single day or something like that, then they might get suspisious and maybe cancel your account.

    Riyaz,

    Blockbuster, Gamefly, or any of those other places do not have any type of devices to find out if you copy a game.

    Seriously though, I think that alot of people are just paranoid, I rent from Netflix and get about 15 dvds a week, as soon as they come in and I decrypt them, I send them right back in the mail. I only need the dvd for about 20mins to decrypt them.

    Think about this logic....do you honestly think that Blockbuster, Netflix, and Gamefly don't know you are copying them. Trust me, they know. They know that people will utilize their services, because they know that people want movies and games. Not only this, but I am about to increases my rental for Netlix from 5 to 8. Pretty much, you have to think of it like this....these companies that rent out via mail know you are burning, watching, trading, or what have you....the technology is their, burners and programs are their. These companies are here to make money. They don't care what you do with the movies (just as long as they get em back :p )

    If you are concerned about whether or not you are going to get caught, you need to think about what and everyone else on the forum is saying.

    Here is a phrase that most people live by......"Don't ask, don't tell."

    To honestly think that Blockbuster would cancel your account if you rent say 16 games a week is ridiculous, they might think you either have no life or just think you REALLY like games, but they will take your money, because they want the business.

    Hope this helps in some way, but to be truthful, your being paranoid....so relax and enjoy the miracle of burn movies and definately thank the programmers who made programs like DVD Decrypt and ANYDVD, oh yeah and CLONE DVD, they are awesome!

    See ya on the forums......

    Yeah, just copy it.....but like jizmak said, make sure there are no scratches, you don't want to waste your time......

    Oh yeah, a couple more things.....if you don't know about copying games, make sure that you get a mod chip because they won't work unless you do. I haven't done it myself, but I am going to soon. If you have any other problems, the veteran forum people can help you out, they are definately knowledgable.

    If you do computer games as well, I know of some programs that will definately help you out.

    Ok, that should do it.....have a good time with the games and if you find an easy way of doing the copying make a guide and post it in the forums, that will definately be helpful.....so I can use it...LOL!

    See ya!

    You don't need to have a modchip, you can go the boot disc route.

    Swap Magic v3.3 would be the boot discs of choice. With these discs, depending on your ps2 version, you will also need to make a slight mod to your system. These mods are simple to do though, you can get a replacement fliptop for any version, use a slidecard for anything before the slimline, and if you have the slimline there are a handful of selections as well, like the slimtool, magic switch i think, a fliptop, and the tape mod.

    Hey dragulaAC,

    Thanks for the info....I do have one question thought:

    Which is easier to do and faster-swap magic or mod chip?

    I keep hearing about the swap magic but then the mod chip installation looks really easy, then the software and stuff.

    From your personal opinion, what are the pros and cons of these 2?

    Thanks for your help!
