    Aren´t mdf, mds files to use with Alcohol 120%?
    I never tried dvd decripter, but for sure those mdf files are for Alcohol.

    If use Alcohol 120, just follow the steps told by the program.
    When you open the folder with the game files, open whatever appears, and open it again until you get the message to burn the disc.
    Don´t forget to choose the file tipe on the bottom, and the system (playstation, ps2 etc...) on the bottom too


    Don´t know if is allowed to put images (pics) on the topics, because if it was i should make you a little tutorial. I´m not sure, so i don´t until i know.

    That one already happened with me, but not wiyh dvds.
    Just happened when i burnt in a cd more than 700MB ( you can burn about 100mb more than 700), so swap magic didn´t boot it, saying me that game wasn´t a ps2 game, but if i put it running with a modded ps2 there was no problem at all.

    If you install a modchip, you get an universal ps2, as it will read all ps2 and psx games, from all zones.
    Don´t buy a cheap modchip, or you´ll regret on future.
    A good choice is "matrix infinity" latest version, as it´s not so expensive, and you can do many things with it , like play games burnt on dvd9, or use datel mcards without the booting cd for them, has also the capacity to manage all software , if you want to use HD.
    Don´t forget that is necessary to have a multisystem tv (NTSC & PAL) to get the right color from your backups. Because if you try to run a PAL game on a NTSC tv set (or vice-versa), you´ll get a wonderful black & white game pictures.
    Don´t think twice, put a damn mod on your ps2, she´ll thank you for her future easy life.

    One more advice.
    You must burn your backups, or copies, speaking more correctly, with speed around 4X or less.
    Don´t use cheap cds or dvds, because most of them will not work, or will freeze during the game.
    If you have a copy working, but not that well as you want, just copy from it to another better disc, with the lowest speed.
