    Some PS2's are having problems reading Dual Layer backups...it depends, but then again, 99% of games out there are on single layered discs anyways, so the chance you'll have to use a Dual Layered disc are slim.

    I've used Alcohol 120% to do direct disc to disc duplitcates before without burning to the harddrive first and it always works...I burn at 4x speed too!! But lately for games such as GTA:SA which I don't want to mess up, I use decrypter and do it the normal way.

    I guess you can try to do a straight duplicate, but to be on the safe side, just create an image to the HD and then to DVD-R

    no problem, anytime!

    I guess my wording wasn't clear enough...by messing up, I'm referring to the actually backup, not the original...you won't mess up your original...
