    Here are the dvd-r booting instructions for the neo 2.2. I would imagine it's pretty similar for the origa.
    PS2 with Neo 2.2 modchip & AR/GS, PS2 DVD backup booting

    1. Have AR/GS dongle in a memory card slot
    2. Power on your PS2
    3. Insert AR/GS disc, close tray
    4. Power off your PS2, wait a few seconds
    5. Press and Hold Reset button to load AR/GS
    6. At the AR2/GS2 menu, press EJECT while still holding Reset
    7. Swap AR/GS disc for an Original-TOC-DVD* and wait 10 seconds
    8. Select "AR/GS Codes"
    9. Highlight "Add new code" and press X to get to the next screen
    10. Press X three times. You will see "Updating code list please wait" each time)
    11. Press "Start" on controller
    12. Select "Without codes", press X
    13. Then Press X again, and immediately release the Reset button, you will see "Updating code list please wait"
    14. The PS2 tray will eject allowing you to swap Original-TOC-DVD* for DVD backup and then close on its own
    15. Screen will change and game will now boot

    * Note - "Original-TOC-DVD" is an original DVD that is a larger file size than the backup

    * Note – For a shortcut make a few “Add new codes”, or use any title you know you don’t need (you can always reset the dongle) and after step 8 just highlight one of the “newly” added codes or unnecessary ones and press square to delete it, then proceed on with step 11

    Personally I would recomend you just get the swap magic discs instead of doing this because it's easier.

    i'm afraid you need to use a toc disc as AR/GS can only boot cdr backups without it
