I have spent several hours looking for the answers to my problem and without any luck. If anyone found the answers, I would be very grateful if you could direct me to the link or simply reply to this message. Anyway here's the question!!! I am trying to backup DVD to DVD copy of my PS2 games using several software such as RecordNow Max, Nero Buring 5xxx, and Primo DVD 2.0. I managed to burn the DVD games successfully (according to the software). But the game never boot up when I came to insert the copied disc into my PS2 console (The TV screen will either display red with the message 'Please insert Playstation 2 format disc...' or will direct me to the browser screen). When I open the backup disc with my PC, all the files seems to be there. It just not boot up for some strange reasons. I already tried several times and wasted so many blank DVDs. I have tried using different types of DVD media (e.g. DVD-R (DVD minus R) and DVD+R (DVD plus R)), and none seems to work for me. Any ideas of what might I've done wrong? Could it be the process of reading the original CD, or could it be writing the image on the blank DVD? Are there any special settings that I'll need to apply for such writing software? Or are there some kind of methods that I need to use during boot up? I am currently using a Sony DRU-500 UL (External) burner with any of the following software: - - Nero Buring Rom (version 184.108.40.206 OEM) - Primo DVD 2.0 - RecordNow Max & RecordNBow DX My PS2 console is an import from Japan, model number is SCPH-39000 S, and is fitted with the Messiah 2 chip. My PS2 is capable of playing copied games as I've brought many back from abroad. The only backup games that will not play are the ones I’ve done myself. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
