    you need a dvd burner to burn dvd based games. You can use Nero or primo software.

    Well, to tell you the thruth:
    With the USB mod you can't play any DVD backups !
    You can only play the copies of CD based PS2 (and PS1) games.
    I quess you know how to copie them (it's the same as you were doing for the PS1)

    Right... so if i were to get a DVD Burner, how simple would it be to backup a DVD based game? The number on the back of my PS2 is: so1-1649860-k which chip could i use with that to play backup DVD's? finaly how could i create a DVD rip? would that be a DVD game on a CD-R? surely that will have draw backs/downsides?
    Thanks for any replys :)

    A DVD rip is needed to copy a DVD based game onto a CD-r.
    But...since you mayby want to buy a DVD burner the rips are not needed !
    Just copy a DVD-based game (1:1, or an image)to an DVD-r or +r and with a good modchip that plays DVD backups you can play whatever you like...
    Sounds good ? It's childsplay when you have a DVD burner (I burned about 30 DVD games so far)
    The number you gave is not the PS2 number or version. Check the manual again it usually starts with SCPH..... If i know this number I can check for you what version it is and what Modchip you can purchase.

    Ok well this must be a version 4 (v4) model from the UK.
    You can either modify your PS2 with:
    -messiah
    -Magic 2
    -Magic 3
    -Magic 3.5

    They all can boot DVD backups ..

    How do you put a dvd based game onto a CD-R. You said something about ripping. Can you tell me the process. Thanks.

    Not really because I burn DVD to DVD so I don't need to go through this process.
    But.. I know that for every game there is a ripkit..you will find it on the Internet.

    Good luck..
