    Hello all. This is my first time using my dvd burner. I have done alot research on the net for the proper way to copy dvd movies and PS2 games. However, there appears to be thousands of ways to do it!! What you be the best way to copy a dvd move (w/ protection), as well as PS2 games? What software should I download/buy? I have a dvd burner, blank Maxell DVD-R's, and a crystal PS2 chip. Thank you all for your help!

    Download DVD Shrink and DVDDecrypter.

    They work great. There are guides to both.

    You might get some RW discs to practice on if you have problems. Keep your burn speed to 4x or less.
    I don't do games, but ther are forums here just for games.
    Welcome to aD. You will find all the answers here.

    Are DVD encrypter and DVD skrink used seperately, or are they used in conjunction with eachother?
    Thanks

    From what I've read in the guides here.
    Drive shrink is used to copy the data you want and you need to remove from the largest copied protected DVD's to your hard drive and then you use Decrypter to copy from the hard drive to the blank disk.
    I finding hard to figure out what I want, and need to remove from the original myself.
    Good luck

    Thanks all for the input.......I copied I, Robot and it worked! Would copying a PS2 game follow the same routine. I just used DVD shrink.
