    cant go wrong with nero ...

    but if you wnat soemthign free allot of people use dvd decrypter and swear by it

    but for me its nero and I got my copy free so if you are resourceful I'm sure you can find something

    as well I'm sure the software that came with your burner will be suitable for a simple copy

    yes the swap discs work with it but...


    you cant eject the tray as it is like a ps1 and since the console knows when the lid is opened you have to open the console up and disable that so it doesnt know when the lid is open.

    Hi, I was just about ready to get a SLimline ps2 premod with maxtrix infinity chip from ps2warehouse.com . But i might not, b/c i searched the forums and found out the the slimline ps2 is have laser problems and it's bad b/c everything is so close together, and that i would just be better of with an original PS2. Any thoughts? Thanks. Also does anyone have any feedback on whether ps2warehouse or xmodd is reliable. Billz has been very helpful. THanks.

    I will have a DMS4 Pro in on Monday. I will let you know how it works out. As for the laser problem, there are some fixes on the net. Its something about incorrect voltage to the laser or something. Here is a fix for it I plan to try when I install my chip http://www.console.com/product_ps2_v12_laserfix.php

    Most of all the recent ps2 games coming out now are dvd games. Nero, and other programs like alcohol 120% or dvd decrypter work fine for copying your ps2 games. When you do not have a mod chip, you need to use a swap method to boot your backup games. SwapMagic is probably the best method of doing this.

    I have been seaching a lot of forums and i've seen that there has been a lot problems with the lasers on the slime pstwo. I think im going to get the original ps2 premod with maxtrix infinity chip. I'm going to get it from xmodd. I figure the original ps2 is reliable, xmodd.com is reliable, and the maxtrix infinity is a great chip and reliable. Any thoughts? Is this the best way to go? Thanks for the help!

    try this. to get the software, go to google.com and search for "free download for" and the name of the program.

    Introduction

    Want to make backups of your Sony PlayStation 2 Games. No problem! You will learn how to make copies of your personal Sony PlayStation 2 games. (We do not condone making copies of PS2 games you do not own). The question is always asked, "Do I need a ModChip?" Well, yes. ModChips are required if you want to play backups of PlayStation 2 discs that you create. If you do not have a ModChip you can click here to get one at a reasonable cost. They are worth the small investment.

    Hardware Requirements
    DVD Player
    DVD Writer
    Blank DVDR Discs
    The Original PS2 Game (Not a copy of a copy)
    ModChip
    Minimum 1.5GB free hard drive space (2GB or more of free hard drive space recommended)
    Recommended Pentium4 or AMD Athalon CPU (not required)


    Software Requirements - Downloads
    DVD Decrypter - Rips the DVD movie, creates an ISO DVD image file and burn that image file back to blank DVD media

    PrimoDVD2 - Download and install this program

    PPF-O-Matic - Used to apply to apply & create PPF patches to your copied PlayStation 2 Games

    Note: Presented here are two methods for making backups of your PS2 Games. The first method is with DVD Decrypter. The second method is with PrimoDVD. Both are presented here so you can decide which is easier for you to use.

    What You Should Know About PS2 Games

    PS2 games come in two formats: CD-Rom & DVD-Rom.

    If the PS2 game is on a DVD-ROM, you will need a DVD-ROM Burner and blank DVD-Rs.

    Identifying a CD-ROM Verses a DVD-ROM PS2 Game
    Each original PS2 disc will have either CD-ROM or DVD-ROM stamped on the disc label and printed on the covers another way to tell is by looking at the bottom of the disc, a PS2 CD-ROM is blue and a PS2 DVD-ROM is silver.

    Section 1 - Ripping Your Your DVD PS2 Games Using DVD Decrypter
    Step 1 - Create a folder on your hard drive and name it VIDEO_TS. (i.e. C:\VIDEO_TS)
    Step 2 - Insert your PS2 Game Disk in your DVD-ROM.
    Step 3 - Insert your blank DVD-R into your DVD-R
    Step 4 - Launch DVD Decrypter. DVD Decrypter will automatically read your PS2 Game Disc.

    Step 5 - Select the ISO Mode and then Read R. (This step is to change the ripping mode)

    Step 6 - Select a Destination. From the destination box, you have to select a filename and directory where to store the ISO image that DVD Decrypter will create for you.

    Step 7 - Navigate to the folder you created in Step 1 (i.e. C:\VIDEO_TS), give your PS2 Game a name. Then click the Save button.

    Step 8 - Copy the PS2 Game to your hard drive. After setting the destination filename, simply click the copy symbol in bottom of the window and DVD Decrypter will start ripping the game and creating a DVD image file to your HDD.

    Step 9 - The ripping process may take between 15 - 60 minutes depending on your computer configuration. You will be presented with a progress panel as shown in (During the Ripping process do not use your computer or run any other programs

    Step 10 - Upon completion of the ripping process you will be presented with the panel shown in Figure 1-8. You will also find an image file (ISO file) with the game name you gave. This file will have an *.ISO extension on it. See Figure 1-9. This ISO file can be burned directly to a DVD-R using DVD Decrypter.

    Section 2 - Burn Your DVD to a Blank DVD-R Using DVD Decrypter

    Step 11 - Burn the image to DVD. After the ripping process has finished, you simply go to Mode menu again and select Write under ISO selection.

    Step 12 - In the Source section of DVD Decrypter, click on the small folder icon and select your movie from the directory you created in Step 1 (the ISO image) from your hard drive and click Open.

    Step 13 - Insert your blank DVD-R into your DVD-R burner and click the copy icon and wait for a veeeery loong time :)

    Section 3 - Burn Your PS2 Games Using PrimoDVD (Alternate Procedure)

    1. Download and install PrimoDVD2. Launch the program.

    2. When you start PrimoDVD2 you will get the PrimoDVD Starter window, just click the "Go to Full Application" button (A).

    3. In the Left of this window it will list your drives, select your DVD burner and right click (B).

    4. In this menu select "Build Global Image" (C).

    5. In this window leave all default settings except for the following:

    a) In the Global image box type the destination & name of the image file to be created (D).
    b) In the Reading Speed box select MIN (D).

    6. Click the "Build" button and leave your PC for a while and you will be left with the image file(s) (E).

    7. Insert a blank quality DVD-R, go to Full Application window again and click on "Global Image or Other Image" icon (F).

    8. Double click your DVD burner so a red arrow appears next to it (G).

    9. Select your image file (H).

    10. Set write speed to the lowest setting (x1 if possible) (J).

    11. Select "Test and if OK Record" (once you have successfully done a few you can just select "Record" but it is best to test the first few you do) (K).

    12. Click the red record button (L).

    13. Go have a cup of tea. When the process is complete you will have a backup copy of your PS2 game.

    hope that helps!

    How does a guy go about finding patches for games? Are the patches only for online play or are there other types?

    On the new slim ps2 how do you disable the sensor so it doesn't know when the lid is open?
