Flip-Top Newbie: Is my burner ok to use? Are these games able to be backed-up successfully?

    I am going to purchase a Flip Top soon.
    I was wondering if everything will be okay though.
    I have a Cendyne DVR-104 (supposed to be identicle to the Pioneer DVR-104). Is this okay to use?

    The games I plan to back-up are:
    Dark Cloud 2
    Devil May Cry
    Devil May Cry 2
    Final Fantasy X
    Grand Theft Auto 3
    Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
    Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec
    Kingdom Hearts
    Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
    Midnight Club 2
    Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance
    NBA Street Vol. 2
    Onimusha 2
    Ratchet & Clank
    Rayman 3
    Shinobi
    Sly Cooper and the Thevius Racoonus
    Suikoden 3
    Zone of the Enders 2

    I will be copying these games directly from the original game DVD's.
    Do any of these games not work, need a patch, or need anything special in order to load?

    Thank You.

    i can guaranteed that at least 3 or them cannot play. Swap magic disc for fliptop is not as successful as non swap modchip.

    I'm pretty sure Kingdom Hearts won't work and I've heard some people having problems with FFX. Most of the other stuff should work okay.

    I have made backups of NBA Street 2, Midnight Club 2, Kingdom Hearts and Dark Cloud 2 with no patches or anything. ..Used a crappy burner and Memorex DVD-R's.

    The only 2 games I've heard of that don't work are Splinter Cell and sometimes Vice City.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a fliptop and everyone of those games I have been able to backup and play succesfully. But each version of ps2 is picky as to what it will or will not play. I have a ver.4 and like I said I can backup and play all of the games you have listed.

    I have a Matshita dvd-ram, and nero. I have backed up WRC2 Extreme using Neo media at x2 speed, also Ratchet+Clank, using Datawrite media at x2 speed, Tried Pro Evelution Soccer 2, 4 times with different media and burning software, still no joy, but I've put it down to the disc being scratched, even though it works perfect in the ps2. Good luck people and I hope to see more verified backups for the PS2 Flip top lid, power to the people. ps forgot to mention the PS2 CD games. X- Squad (which is bollocks, but I was just testing the machine) and pro evelution soccer 1. Using Imation cdr.

    Thanks for the help guys. I have a ver. 4 too cheib, so I guess I shouldn't worry too much. I posted this question in other boards and some people said all these games should work fine.

    JMoney, I heard Splinter Cell is supposed to be able to work with CDLOADER which you can download off the net. People said you can get it from PS2Ownz (which is down now) or Kazaa.

    All the PS2 games on CD work perfectly for the past 2 years of burning them. I even have GTA3 on CD which works fine, it just has like 3 or 4 of the radio stations (supposedly the worst ones) ripped out. Soul Calibur 2 (jap import) on cd with all FMV removed.

    Backed up Enter the Matrix (rental). Used nero on the fly worked fine with swap magic. Then tried to load it again and it wouldn't work, as i say worked 1st time then the backup disc didn't work at all, Is this something to do with dummy files on rentals..Only rented it cos me pet dog ate the original

    First off, don't say you rented the game. Although you said you rented it b/c your dog ate the original, In a way...you are illegally doing backups, and this forum doesn't give information for illegal backuping but just to backup your already owned games.

    Second, try this:
    Burn an image of the game into your hard drive and into your dvd-r...some say it works good that way. GOOD LUCK with your burn! :)

    first off, mr junior member I do not do anything that is illegal,second I still have the original MATRIX dvd ,third your replie did not give me any new direction, (as i said it worked once then not at all), Forth Why did you reply to this in the first place??

    5th: Cheers for your concern about illegal backups The Third World does not need this right now, My Insurance will cover the cost of the game, The dog choked as a result of eating pieces of dvd slivers, and my dog was insured for £1250, so I'm up £11 after i get a new dog

    I've never encountered any dummy files on any rentals. and i've had to rent quite a few to make backups of the ones my kids have scratched (i only rent games that i own to do a backup when my disc is scratched to the point where i cant make a backup of it). so if you are forced to rent one to back it up, it should be the exact same. you can also send the disc back to the manufacterer for a replacement. i forget what thread that was in but i guy was saying exactly how to go about getting the manufacturer to replace the disc and you only need to pay the shipping.

    Thanks for trying to warn me. But ALL OF THEM worked. How would you know if "at least 3" of them won't work if you've never tried?

    i wouldn't really say cocky, it is very important that no one mentions anything that could even be closely viewed as piracy, even if that is not what you are doing, if the wrong person (feds) reads it, it could just be a big hassle for the site. any discussing of piracy could get aD shut down and nobody wants that. I am not sure why you are having trouble with ETM, i did that one on the first time with no problems.
