can you play coppied ps2 games on a normal ps2. if not what do i need.
no u can not play copied games on a normal ps2
you will either need a modchip installed
or have swap magic
PS2 games are actually pressed DVD/CD discs, they are not burned. PS2 games use the Burst Cutting Area (BCA) of the disc to identify themselves to the PS2 unit. The BCA is not part of a disc that you can burn on, it is only replicated on pressed discs.
So, the only way to play backups is to get boot-discs or a mod-chip.
(You will need)
Use Quality Media I use
***** BURN AT NO MORE THAN 2X****** <-----------(IMPORTANT)
TURN OFF ANY BACKGROUND APPLICATIONS
1. Take the ps2 game put it in the dvd rom or dvd burner, your choice.
2. open the dvd decryptor program then go to to tool bar and hit MODE>ISO>READ. Then choose the correct dvd drive that the game is in as the "source". Also choose where you want the files to be stored on the pc hdd. THEN CLICK DECRYPT , or the huge graphical picture at the bottom of the program which makes it run. The game is now copying to your HDD. Take the game out when finished (it might take a while).
3. Go to the same tab in dvd decryptor and choose MODE>ISO>WRITE. This will then let you look for the files you just created in step 2. Select the file that you just created. (There is only 2 files creadted so pick the .mds) (The smaller file)Then click WRITE, make sure there is blank DVD in the drive.
A mod chip will give you the least amount of headaches. For $50-60, you can get a flip top and swap magic discs. That is how I started out. But it gets to be a hassle swapping discs and more and more of the new games comming out will also need to be rebuilt, patched, etc. For $60-$120, you can get a mod chip with install. I paid $50 with shipping for a DMS4 Lite mod chip from a reputable dealer and installed it myself.
could someone post a link to a dvd presser for sale? im willing to pay anything for one, i just cant get my hands on one.
Can I do the same for a cd-r?
I dont have a DVD burner ( I know this sucks and i,m getting one shortly!!)
But how do you burn a ps2 game to cd-r, Iv'e hered of doing this. Do I need to use Win Rar? Can someone tell me step by step to burning a game I already have on my computer to a cd-r?
