    Hi, I use Alcohol-120% to copy my PS2 games that are less than 4 gigs (Because I have a FAT32 file system on my pc and it won't save an ISO file bigger than that) and DVD Decrypter for the bigger games.

    So, here's what I mode I use: ISO mode. It works GREAT! Use it to MAKE the ISO files AND to BURN THEM. For some reason, and I have the latest version of Alcohol-120&, Alcohol seems to have a problem with multi files. I ended up with a DVD coaster today when it did that to me. DVD Decrypter will break up a 4+ gig ISO file and will translate it itself. I used it to handle Terminator 3: Redemption (awesome game, BTW) and it worked perfectly.

    So, in summary, Use ISO MODE in READ mode to create the ISO and then ISO MODE in WRITE MODE to burn the disc. You can use DVD Decrypter to copy all of your PS2 games and not use Alcohol, but I have found that Alcohol works just as well and I've been using it steadily for the smaller games.

    Sheesh, I hope I didn't confuse you!!

    Well, I'm getting the newest one. I think it is version 3, or 3.2 or something.
