    I'm fairly new at PS2 and backups and also pretty confused by now.

    I have successfully made a backup of GT3 A-spec simply using the methods described by all, launch program, select mode read iso etc - and later mode write iso - the backup is playing beautifully

    Now I am trying to make backups of GTA-Vice City and MGS-Sons of Liberty - both have failed twice

    Now after reading all the different guides and forums (I must have joined 5 or more by now)

    I wonder is there something specific about the protection on those games or is it just that my media is bad - this is different media than to what I used on GT3 ?

    If I use DVD Decrypter to capture and deploy the image - is there anything else I should worry about in terms of Disk Security etc? (now the Newbie in me is shining through?)

    I have a PS2 v.9 and Messiah 3.2 chip installed.
    Latest version of DVD Decrypter

    Any feedback will be sincerely appreciated

    what media are you using? They have no different copy protection than gt3 has.

    hi - thanx for the response - am starting to suspect the media - got a dvd info tool and found out the media has an unknown manufacturer - although it has the same name on the box - my own studipity - going to speak to the store that is selling this tomorrow.
    Cause the manufacture id is "iso1" and some of the other parameters looks dodgy as well
