    I read the tutorial off PS2NFO and thought I got my backup to work online. I was able to burn the disc ID util .cue to a CDr and load it in my PS2 with SMD with no problem. I was also able to get the Disc ID for the game I wanted to backup. I did use the original game to get the Disc ID, the game was NFL Street 2(SLUS version). I will not have the game for long because I borrowed it from a friend. But I do have the ISO saved on my Hard Drive. My problem was converting the Disc ID and then burning it even though I thought everything went smoothly. I used Image Patcher 1.6 just like it told me to then Select image->scan file->verify version-> put in the original Disc ID-> then patched it, then i burnt it to a dvdr (the game worked but not online). What did I do wrong? When I loaded the backup to see the Disc ID it was different from the original game. Also when I downloaded the game to my HD it made two seperate files the ISO which I burned to a dvdr and a MDS file(which was pretty small). What is the MDS file?

    image patcher is easier. The mds file just gives some info about the image and points to it. you should burn the mds file every time.

    Having more problems now?! Very P.O.ed! Image patcher wont even let me put the Disc ID in for MLB 2006 The error message states: ERROR: The Image File is not DN*S enabled or uses an unsupported version!
    Would the other method of Disc insertor work?!
    Also how would i burn the MDS file along with the ISO using decrypter? Is that maybe the reason why i cant get the disc ID to a DVDr? ThanX 4 ur help so far!

    maybe
    when you burn the mds file, it automatically burns the iso.
    the mds file is to iso as
    cue file is to bin

    Thanks for ur help so far. I got NFL street 2 to work online, actually i didnt need to change anything but i thought it wouldnt work, but it did, went online on the backup yesterday. Also, one more question I read in a different thread that you can use other games Disc ID (original) and put them in any other DNAS online game. Is this true or does it have to be the same game? I was consiedering using my NHL 2005 ID off the original to put in MLB 2006 (backup), would it work?
