    i am new to this and have been using recordnowDX to back-up ps2 games, I successfully backed up 2 games using TDK DVD+R 1-4x discs but when I tried the same method using Panasonic DVD-R 1-4x discs my ps2 machine would not recognise it. I have spent a fortune on discs recently and would like to know if these Panasonic discs should work? or should I buy the TDK discs? so far I hav managed to waste lots of discs!!!

    if one brand works dont buy another... if the tdk worked use them.. no need to buy another brand...

    ok, thanx for that. I am actually doing all this for my kids. I just noticed something you wrote to another newbie and can I tell you.. the games I hav been trying to back-up are rented from our local DVD rental store! the games I ripped successfully are games my kids own. are the rental games impossible to back-up? I hav no idea! all i know is I backed - up their own games no problem but cant get the hired ones to work atall....?

    I am also only backing - up games my kids already owned but have been damaged sooo bad they wont play no more.. hence how I am backing up rented games!

    to test my theory, 1 of my kids friends has just brought his LOTR return of the king game round for me to try back-up as i did successfully with recordnow DX and I will use the panasonic DVD-R disc.

    I use DVD decrypter to back-up my PS2 games, it works very well and its free and works with most DVD-R's

    go on to www.dvddecrypter.com

    rented games scrached beyond belif LITERALY the only reason you cant copy them cuz to much scraches makes it imposible to copy... i dont bother with rents... waste of money imo...

    lol... sounds just as bad as my kids!! I keep telling them to not leaving them lying around the floor... but still they do!! I give up!!! so tell me... is it only viable to really make a back-up of a brand new game? as there are no scratches etc? and... I suppose the lotr return of the king didn't work as it was propably all scratched too? it seemed ok too...Was I just lucky with the 2 that worked? or do u think its the TDK discs that r the answer for me? as I hav no TDK dvd's left and only Panasonic 1's...am lost!! lol

    TDK stick to them like glue... if they work USE THEM... dont use other brand... belive me... if you will you will lose your time.. money.. and probably your temper(i know i would)... so use ONLY TDK if they work... as for backup the LOTR it was proably with scraches if it didnt work.. do this dude if they scrach the game scrare them and say no more ps2 FOR 2 MONTHS!! then they will stop i knwo it worked cuz my ex stoped scraching them... after 2 times that i yell at her and toke the ps2 away... but trust me it works..

    kaotic - relax dude this aint against the rules hes not going to copy any more rents... cuz it's pointless.. half of the posts here are talked about rents anyway.. then again who knows...

    liljoe - do a search man... this one has been asked over 200000 times... and im not kidding.... do a search and find out..
