Hello all. Yes I'm a newbie to the world of backing up PS2 games, and thought the masses could shed some light. I've been backing up copy protected PC games for a couple years now, and have learned it works with most burning software, but needs a 'No-Cd Patch'. I then learned that using a burner that supports EFM correcting ie.(Lite-On 52327s that I own) and software such as Alcohol 120% you can make an "exact" copy, that performs just like your retail one with out a patch. My question is why can't you with PS2 games? Just curious. Great site. Thanks, and have a good one.
