    you will need to mod your ps2 to play backup ps2 games you can either use a solder in no swap mod chip or you could use the swapmagic discs with the fliptop/slidecard. To burn the images nero will work but you could also use dvd decrypter, another usefull program to you will be win rar

    Does it depend on what format the file is in?Such as iso,cue,bin?

    aslong as the file format is supported by nero it doesn't matter,i dont think nero supports the burning of .gi and mds/mdf files

    if you have a version 1-3 it wont read DVD+R. if you have a vesion 4 it might read DVD+R. If you have anything over 5 it will read DVD+R.

    dont get a no solder mod becuase you will probably end up blowing a fuse. i have a matrix infinity and have never had a single problem with it. it has booted every game i have ever thrown at it.

    Blowing a fuse with no solder mod?So the solder chips are the way to go?
