    In order to back up your game you're going to need software such as BlindWrite, Alcohol 120% or Clone CD. PC games on DVD use the same protections as the CD versions do.

    If the game is on a dual layer disc you're out of luck unless you happen to a have a DL burner and the media to go with it.

    What size is the disc as reported by Windows Explorer?

    More than that, PS2 protection can easily, as the PSX one, be bypassed by a modchip (perfectly legal) and if you don't have it you're in the same trouble if you're in USA and you try to play an ORIGINAL english game.

    Short of having a DL DVD burner there's no way that I know of to back up a DL DVD game.
