Will any of the new duel layer burners make working backups of duel layer PS2 games?
They should. Currently dual layered burners are very expensive and also keep in mind that oyu have to buy dual layered blank dvds which i havent seen being sold.
Crud, I just got a vaio with a duel layer dvd+-RW/CD-RW...
Dual layer media is still pretty expensive, but the burners are cheap as dirt. $68 for a top of the line burner with free shipping is hardly what I call expensive. The media is starting to come down in price though, and there are plenty of good places on the web to buy them. I can't remember for sure where I read it, but I think I read that dual layer backups won't work with Swapmagic, but cant remember the reason for it.
Yeah thats true, Dual layered backups WILL NOT WORK WITH SWAP MAGIC. I think it had something to do with the TOC and that it couldn't refresh more that a 4.5gbs.
Darn, I was hoping I was wrong on that. I read that by using DVD loader and an original PS2 DVD9 you could play large backups, but I guess that only counts if the game is split over two disks?
The only way to play a dvd9 backup with swap magic is if it is split between two seperate disks or if it is compressed into a dvd5.
couldn't a duel layer burner brun onto a single layer disc?
I heard it can be done with the TOC refresh option,but I am not really sure if it is true or not for swap magic users.
Thanks for all the replys My PS2's are chiped but i have yet to find anyone who has made a playable backup of a dvd-9 game on a duel layer burnner that has worked if any one has please let me know which burner you have and what software you used .
