    go to the PS2 back up section and read the bold threads at the top.
    1. you do not extract an ISO
    2. you need to burn on GOOD QUALITY DVD's
    3. you need to burn at the correct speed
    4. (and i really hope you know this one) you need to have a modded PS2 to play back up games.

    depends on what the max speed of the DVD you use is. Generally i stick to 4X burning speed on any DVD 8X or above. But some people use 6X and 8X on a 16X speed DVD and it works better for them.
    Everyone's burner and PS2 is slightly different.

    is it possible you burned the ISO in data format instead of disc image format? I know Nero uses dfferent settings for those things.
