    Hi!

    Is it possible to compress a 8GB PS2 game such as God of War?
    I need to back it up onto a 4.7GB DVD because I have no dual layer burner.

    Thanks,

    You can try rebuilding the game to a smaller size.
    heres a guide which I found on here that shows you a step by step guide with pictures of how to rebuild a game - http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/275350

    if its a 8GB game then you may need atleast 25GB of free space on your computer, ive wanted to try rebuilding before but i cant cause ive only got 11GB hard drive :mad:

    many people shrunk it down to DVD5 size, but that was a while ago when it first came out. A search of the forums would have given you more posts about how to do this then you care to read.
    it is called ripping. And if you want an easy way out you can check torrent sites for a copy that has already been ripped down to DVD5
