How to write PS2 games to DVD from a torrent download?

    I recently downloaded Dark Cloud 2 through utorrent as I lost nearly all my ps2 games in a relocaton mixup and I want to put it on to DVD. I have DVD Decrypter and Nero, Sony DVD-R 4.7gb, swapmagic 3.6 and flip-top for my ps2 so I think I got all the tools. After downloading I'm left with a "winrar archive" file titled "Dark Cloud 2" (nothing confusing yet). I extracted the 2.4 gig file and it created a folder titled "Dark Cloud 2" in the same directory as the winrar file. Inside there is a "Darkcloud 2 MDS File" which is 5kb, another file titled Dark Cloud 2.I00 which is 4,194,302 kb and Dark Cloud 2.I01 which 139,426 kb. From here what should I do? Any links to guides or direct help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks =)

    Hey,

    I have had this problem as well. You should use Alcohol 120% and load the MDS file. It will then sort it out for you. There are some settings in Alcohol 120% that you may have to tinker with, I havent burnt a game in a while. I think there is a stick on how to burn games using Alcohol. The MDS file opens up what you want to burn, and if Im not mistaken and you burn it correctly, it should work. Also, what file type is the Winrar archive, because if it is ISO you can burn that directly onto the DVD.

    Hope I helped a bit,

    As far as I know most of the torrents I dl are .rar. I have the ISO unchecked under winrar settings so I assume it isnt an ISO. So is it possible to burn the MDS file with DVD Decrypter? Or is Alchohol 120 easier to use when it comes to the MDS files I get through torrents? Thanks for the help =P

    I would say use Alcohol, but that is my poinion. I just think it is easier to use it because you can mount the image and burn away!

    There should not be just one rar file.
    Are you sure that it is not an ISO file?
    What is the file size?
    As above, if you have the ISO box checking in Winrar as to what files it associates with, then ISO files will show up with the same Winrar icon on your PC as normal RAR files will.
    Uncheck the box and they will show with a different icon.

    burn the MDS file to a disc, but that is one small PS2 game.
    DVD DEcrypter can burn it or Alcohol 120%

    you don't. If you used DVD Decrypter to copy a game disc it would make 2 files. An MDS and an ISO file. You could load either one and burn it.

    Alcohol 120% should have no problems burning the file.
    The thing i am wondering is if the game you downloaded is not
    a DVD based game. If not then DVD DEcrypter would not work (Alcohol 120% would)
    But if it is a CD based games then you need to burn it to a CD

    now that i think about it i really think it is a CD based game.

    ok i hav got an ISO file now all i need is a burner to burn this ISO to dvd. I tried DVDDECRYPTER but it's fake n alcohol 120% would ask for an empty cd wen i insert it nothing will happen n it will ask the same thing again. Can u tell me another burning software or how to use these burners in simple instructions.

    Thanx for the rest help given.

    even though downloading ps2 games with torrents is illegal, i'll assume you got the torrent from a "friend" lol

    ok so whatever type of file you got, you must convert to ISO. use any program like Power ISO, ISO Buster or Magic ISO. After its converted, open it up in DVD Decrypter, insert a blank cd/dvd and burn it. wallah

    Not sure, I always burn on DVD-R, and they always work, so perhaps that is your safest bet. You probably cna burn onto RW, give it a shot, but I have never tried so i wouldn't know :p
