Discussion in 'PS2 - DVD backup discussion' started by jj44100, Jan 20, 2008.
you can play iso's off a hardrive, or burn it to disc and play if your ps2 is modded.
how can i do this if i dont hae a modded ps2 or swap magic
get a program called "dvd decrypter"..do a google search for it
burn ur iso usinng this program..n just play it!that simple
u wont need any swap magic or anything
if your ps2 isnt modded u WILL have to have a way to boot the copy like swap magic
ok so i downloaded the file and its telling me that i have to have some sourt of volume to continue the extraction
o and by file i meen iso
can i use dvd s
i meant t0 say dvd r not s
ummm you need to have swap magic, an internal hardrive with a fat ps2 or a modchip to boot up backed up games... there is no way around this
not entirely legal to download the iso's unless you own a copy of it you know...
anyway your supposed to download all the parts of the file...
and yes using dvd r is good
and umm just so this is clear
you need some sort of mod to your ps2 either swap magic a mod chip or hardrive...
"Real" discs are pressed metal, mechanically made media. The presses are precise. Burning is a sloppy method to recreate the process, using dyes that can have pits and grooves "burned" into the chemical, making an illusion of how a "real" disc would look and work. If you compare a pressed media and a burned media under a microscope, you can see that the pressed media is fairly precise, while the burns are fairly erratic, and it's almost a miracle that burning works at all.
PS2 games are actually pressed DVD/CD discs, they are not burned. PS2 games use the Burst Cutting Area (BCA) of the disc to identify themselves to the PS2 unit. The BCA is not part of a disc that you can burn on, it is only replicated on pressed discs. So, the only way to play backups is to get boot-discs or a mod-chip.
The following list is in preference order. The best discs are near the top of the list. The discs at
the bottom of the list are suitable only for a landfill.
Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
PVC = Pioneer = (-R)(-RW)
MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<-----------------VERBATIM MY CHOICE #1
TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)<--------------FUJIFILM (made in japan) MY CHOICE #2
Decent discs, though not perfect, about 85-95%
RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)
RITEKG03 = Ritek = (-R)
OPTODISC = Optodisc = (-R)
Use Quality Media I use
***** BURN AT NO MORE THAN 2X****** <-----------(IMPORTANT)
TURN OFF ANY BACKGROUND APPLICATIONS
1. Take the ps2 game put it in the dvd rom or dvd burner, your choice.
2. open the dvd decryptor program then go to to tool bar and hit MODE>ISO>READ. Then choose the correct dvd drive that the game is in as the "source". Also choose where you want the files to be stored on the pc hdd. THEN CLICK DECRYPT , or the huge graphical picture at the bottom of the program which makes it run. The game is now copying to your HDD. Take the game out when finished (it might take a while).
3. Go to the same tab in dvd decryptor and choose MODE>ISO>WRITE. This will then let you look for the files you just created in step 2. Select the file that you just created. (There is only 2 files creadted so pick the .mds) (The smaller file)Then click WRITE, make sure there is blank DVD in the drive.
ok i do not have a modchip or swap magic all i have is the dvd r cd with the downloaded iso on it..but i still never tried it on my ps2 because i dont get it back until the weekend
it's not going to work because you need a modchip or swapmagic. it will just say to insert a playstation 2 disc.
