    Is it possible to make a back-up of my PS2 games and NOT need a mod-chip to play them? I don't have a huge library but, want to protect what I have.

    Any help would be greatly appreciate.

    Thx

    I had read your tutorial. Very informative. Most of the applications either require a Mod-chip or "cards" which I am unfamiliar with. I did do a search and it came up blank for the info I inputted. There has to be a way to make a 1:1 for PS2. If someone could explain to me why you require a mod-chip, I'd be grateful.

    Thanks

    Just like the PS1, part of the PS2 disk contains regional data (much like a DVD) that tells the machine which region that particular game comes from. However, that region cannot be read from consumer CD/DVD-ROM and CD/DVD-Rs. Therefore a chip is needed for the machine to bypass that stage and start the game. It is not impossible to make a 1:1 copy of a game but you will need the specific CD/DVD-Writer to do it, and as far as I understand, we can't purchase it.

    Hope that answered your question.

    Yes, that did answer my question...and I thank you for that. I just would have thought that with today's technology and software/hardware being what it was, we'd be able to bypass it...such as 321Studio's ability to bypass encryption, be able to "outsmart" the copy-protection on CD games (however, I do understand your statement so, obviously other factors need to be taken in to account).

    Have a good one.!!
