I searched the forums and none of the ones that discuss about issues with backing up FFX-2 directly answer my issue. I have a super old ps2 (Jap SCPH-18000) and recently had a Messiah 2 installed in it. All original games work fine. I played the copied games I got with it and they worked. I also played a few ps2 games I dlded and burned (Naruto Jap). I followed both the instructions on burning ps2 games using Alcohol 120%, Nero, and DVD Decryptor but the game still doesn't play. It can't be my media because then it would be the same problem for the previous games I burned, but they work fine. I've wasted 6 DVDs trying to burn this game. My media is something I got off eBay XD. But they've all worked so far and no coasters. The problem I get is either it doesn't work period (won't even get to the square enix screen) or when it does load, when I select new game it's either frozen at the movie screen (this only happened once) or doesn't give me any video and sound feed and then basically freezes after Rikku goes "Y,R,P, in position" (screen is blank and then the subs appear and then overlap each other). People have asked me why I bother burning that game (lot of people don't like it), but I'm thinking that if I can't burn this, I can't burn any games ><. Can anyone save me from wasting more DVDs ^^;?
