I have read many articles about burning PS2 games with regular cd-burners, and using certain software and techniques to play them with out a mod-chip. Here is one of the links I have found talking about that method: http://www.totse.com/en/hack/software_cracking/163084.html But anyway, for my question. If you don't need a dvd-burner to burn PS2 games why would you get one? Is there advantages to burning ps2 games with a dvd-burner??? I would see an advantage where if you used a dvd-burner to burn the game and then wouldn't need to use a mod chip or a certain method, but I have not been able to find any info about that.
