    I see this long ass posts about "The Quick and EASY way to backup PS2 DVD-ROMs!!!", and they're

    long
    annoying
    hard
    and NOT EASY

    They also tell you that you need to download like 75 different programs!!!

    Who's got time for that?!?!?!

    Read mine.
    I backed up a disk with JUST THESE tools:

    blank DVD-R disk
    alcohol 120% <--- on my signature because its so easy to use
    the ps2 game you want to backup
    a ps2
    a dvd rom burner or a computer
    Swap MAgic Discs

    Alright here's what you do:

    1. open alcohol 120
    2. select "image making wizard"
    3. insert your ps2 game
    (if not done automatically, set datatype to Playstation 2)
    4. select where to save the dvd image onto your computer
    5. hit start
    (wait for the dvd to finish writing to your HD)
    6. pop in your blank DVD-R disk
    7. select image burning wizard
    find the image file in your computer (with the browse button)
    8. set your writing speed to 4X <---- VERY IMPORTANT
    9. let the game be written on to the blank disc


    that's it.

    I'm warning you now
    YOU NEED MODCHIPS OR A BOOT DISC

    (I recommend Swap MAgic)

    you can't just use this guide and pop the backed up disc in
    you need a MODCHIP or SWAP MAGIC DISKS

    Yup works fine, but the big guides actually give you the knowledge you need and why you need to do various stuff.. but yeah this works too if you use the correct media and have knowledge of how to do this.

    Let me tell you whats Ridiculous, just ridiculous

    1)Your title thread
    2)Your adapt ability to annoy senior members like myself,who write these guides,and then for someone like yourself to describe them as
    long
    annoying
    hard
    and NOT EASY

    3)your inapt ability to read up on the Stickies located at the top of this thread

    Please feel free to write any sort of guide you like,but please dont dis-respect those who have written others

    yeah, and i can do you one better.
    Get DVD Decrypter and install it.
    1. put PS2 game in drive and select "mode-ISO-Read" and pick a place to save it
    2. now select "mode-ISO-Write" and browse to the file you just saved, pick your burning speed and press the green arrow
    3. sit back and have a nice ice cold adult beverage.

    Please people, these easy burning methods have been around since the very beginning. He just did not search around for an easier way.

    and P>S This method WILL do dual layer discs. But in order to play them you either need a mod chip that plays dual layer back ups (DMS4 Pro) or any mod chip that plays dual layer originals in which case you just patch it with Toxic DL Patcher.

    @hursty, Oh my God! I think it can. I had one of those dream, you know the really vivid one's where you can not even tell your dreaming. And a magical fairy came to me and showed me her little secret for backing up PS2 games. And sure enough when i woke up i tried it and it actually worked!!! [​IMG]

    Yeah, as Steimy said, it's pretty much that easy. At least for DVD-5s.

    Yeah.. It's not exactly hard is it. We used to rip the early dvd games with nero.. copy entire disk.. simple as that.
    Then they started getting clever, but alcohol120 took care of it.
    Finally we used the same method as steimy, without thinking anything of it.
    People love to make things that are easy seem really hard. They seem to get a lot of mileage out of it before somebody comes along and throws in the proverbial spanner.
    I had a 3 line xbox backup guide just like this.

    Oh, of course, I know sarcasm when I see it. But you'd be surprised how many people still mess it up.

    Keep up the good work.
