    I am not looking at putting multiple games on one DVD, I am wondering how to backup [bold]1 game[/bold] that has multiple DVD's or CD's onto the HDD using HDAdvance.

    I searched the forum, but couldn't find what I am looking for.

    I am thinking I have to combine all the cd's or DVD's on the computer into one big image file and then somehow move them to the hdd on the ps2 as one file. That way when it needs the next disc, its all in the image file and ready to load.

    I have seen how to move files to the hdd through the computer, but I think they reformat the hdd which I don't want to do, I already have it formatted with hdadvance and I have about 10 games on there that I don't want to lose with a reformat.

    anyone know how to do this ?
    Or, can you point me to a thread that shows how...
    I am not totally new, but I don't have the ps2 modded, just using hdadvance and a 160 gig hdd...
    not clear about what I am trying to do, just ask and I can elaborate.

    Check this out, being the master sleuth that i am (i used the search function, right there look up), i typed in "multiple games on one ps2 disk", chose "all of these words', adn not older then "all". And look what i found http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/113893 . Not trying to be an ass, but, 80% of the time, that search button DOES work. Anyway, hope that helps.

    Romero, in this case, i think you're right, i didn't read the post carefully enough.

    Then again, i wasn't trying to answer his question outright (as i dont know of any answer to it, not sure there IS one), but point him in a useful direction.

    But you're right Romeo. Tell Juliet i said hi. :)
