    I don't know where you left off with -dud0r- but what seems to be the problem?

    Wht don't you use dvd decrypter to read and write your games. Also trying buying good media like Ritek G04 and try burning at a lower speed.

    isobuster is free and avaible on the net, http://www.smart-projects.net/isobuster/
    $ony cddvdgenerator must be purchased from the usual places(of course i mean the stores:)).

    When opening an iso/dvd in isobuster the files will be displayed on the right.
    There's a table called LBA, this is the order on the cd make sure that the LBA goes from low to high.
    Extracting is done by rightclicking the dvd/iso and select extract.
    Rebuilding the iso: Make sure you got isobuster open and the LBA running from low to high(simple click the LBA table to make it display that way)
    Open op cddvdgen -> create new project -> dvd-rom master disc.
    Just drag the files from the folder it's in in the right LBA order into cddvdgen.
    Then under volume enter the sces/sles/scus etc code in disc name.
    The hit the record button, if you're lucky it will then burn to a disc.
    Most cases it won't cause that only works on a couple of writers.
    Hit the export image button under file, it will now create an image.
    This will consist of .000 etc files, you have to make an iso out of those files using dos
    Open an dos box(run -> cmd)browse to the folder the .000 etc files are stored.
    when in the right folder -> copy /b (filename).000 + (filename).001 + etc, till all files ending with .000 etc are added, (filename).iso
    This will create an iso, which can be burned with whatever you want.

    Hope this helps, good luck
