    hey, im kinda new to using backups and the likes, i was wondering if i am able to use a DVD+R ( HP Computer ) to create PS2 backups. haven't tested it and i know i should test before i ask, but i haven't bought them yet and if they don't work then i won't bother spending the money.
    Also wanted to know if the answer to that is yes, will i still be able to use alcohol 120% to burn them.
    Thanks in advance.

    DVD+R can only be read on ps2 console versions 4 and up. DVD-R is the preferred disc to use.

    To identify your version, visit here:
    www.modchip.com/ps2/ps2id.htm

    Alcohol 120% can be used to create backups. My advice would be to create an image and then burn the image, don't copy on the fly. Burn at 1X for best results.

    I recommend Professional Grade media such as TDK or Verbatim.



    Please note that you need a mochip installed, or use a boot disc, in order to play copied games. Factory ps2's will not read copied ps2 games.

    That burner will only burn dvd+r discs. I would recommend tdk or verbatim dvd+r discs.

    TDK

    Verbatim
