    Did you check your device manager and see what your drive is recognized as? Also, is the PS2 game you are backing up a CD or DVD-ROM based game? A lot of times, if you put in a CD-ROM PS2 game (usually these are the very old games) your DVD drive will be recognized as a CD burner. Also, what method are you using to backup?

    windows XP often shows DVD burners as CD drive when a blank or burned DVD is in there..... it's always been a bug and seems to be corrected with Vista!
