    burned Bin & Cue file to CD with Nero but another coaster, i have Alcohol 120% is that a better program to use or is there anything else as a suggestion.

    perhaps u could put a step by step idiot guide for me sly cos im new to all this CD stuff for the PS2 and just got another CD game (star Wars Lego) for my son who keeps on at me to get these to work.

    thanks again for all the help so far and anything else u can do.

    Cheers

    are these actual cd games, or are you downloading them off the internet? Also, what mod do you have?
