Hello. After getting my dvd burner and trying to back up my games, I have only succeeded in created many fine, exotic, and expensive coasters. Here is my stuff: Burner: LG GSA 4040B with 301 firmware (the latest) Computer: Not bad, definatly fast enough to burn dvds. 512 mb ram and 2 ghz. Burning Program: Tried DVD Decryptor and Alcohol 120%, I burned at 4x and 2x (it would not let me pick 1x for some reason for either media) My Media: Memorex DVD-R 4x (would never burn at 4x, only at 2x) Fujifilm DVD-R 4x (tried at 4x and 2x) PS2: Version 2. A year ago Sony took it in and fixed the laser problem its had - not sure exactly what they did but it fixed those read errors my version was having. My Mod method: Not actually any mod chip. I use Swap Magic DVD and CD v 2.0 and a slide card. Game's tried: Gran Turismo 3 A Spec. I wrote and read the image from the same LG 4040B drive on my computer, directly from my original copy of the game. At first I was using Memorex DVD-Rs and nothing would come up at all really. Swap Magic DVD would always give me the red color and never load. Then I tried Fujifilm DVD-Rs, and this time a blue color came up and my copy of Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec loaded the car disclaimer and Sony Entertainment Presents and blacked out before loading up the video. Not sure if this info is important but I'll throw it out there: I tried backing up a few single layer DVD movies. With memorex media, the movie section would load and played rather poorly and the menus wouldn't come up. But I tried these DVD movie backup copies on my friends Version 4 and they loaded fine. I couldn't try the DVD PS2 game backups because he wouldn't let me snap off his cover to try it out. This sort of leads me to believe that perhaps Version 2 PS2's just aren't up to par with loading backed up games or that Sony did something crazy to my laser when they fixed it. By the way, CD-R backups of PS2 games load just fine. If anyone here can help I would be very appreciative. If any more info is needed, let me know what to supply.
