ok, i have no problem at all doing dvd backup's. I have had no trouble at all doing any DVD game to DVD-R. When i do cd based games (PS2) sometimes they partially boot, sometimes they dont. I read and burn them slowly, use good media (various types even) but they dont boot all the way. Take spongebob for example, it boots to the main menu and when i try to go to "new game" it goes back to the Sony screen telling me to insert ps2 game. It's like the cd checks are menu driven or something. i haven't had ANY cd based PS2 games work. The ripped dvd based that are cut donw to cdr size work fine, but i can't seem to get a cd based game to work. Anyone had this, or know how to fix? Any input would be helpfull, or if i could help anyone with dvd based games, just ask. i've only had 1 dvd backup out of 50+ that i've done fail and that was cause my kid yanked my power cord from the wall!!
