Hi, pretty new to the DVD backups. I just purchased a Sony DRU-510a multiple format DVD +/-R drive and am trying to figure out how to burn a loadable copy of SOCOM (the first one). I have a version 4 (GT3 combo) PS2, equipped with a no solder MOD chip. All of my CDR's work fine (provided they're 74 min iso's and not 80 min). I am using an Action Replay 2. I copied SOCOM using Nero, putting the image 1st on my HD. I burned at 4x using Memorex DVD-R Media. I was using GT3 to do the swap, once the Action Replay had loaded. Put in Gt3 with a normal eject sequence, let it load 30 sec, then a 2nd swap with the MOD-Chip active to keep the laser on to get to the SOCOM backup. Then through the Action Replay no codes, start game. The PS2 acts as though it's trying to read the dvd over and over, just keeps searching, and the action Replay screen stays on. I am 99% sure that the TOC for GT3 is bigger than SOCOM. (By a bigger TOC, I mean it's a larger game in GB, than SOCOM.) Other REAL titles I have are Tony Hawk 3, Hot Shots 3, NAscar Thunder 2003, NCAA 2003. If any of these are better to use for the swap let me know. I'm also going to purchase the Swap Magic Boot 2 or 3 dvd as well, which i am pretty sure will fix my problem. So any help here would be greatly appreciated. 2)Are there any games that need to be "patched" before burning onto DVD? 3)Will a backup of SOCOM II work via this preceding method as well? I hear it looks for the "GOOD" mod-chips. Thank goodness i bought a piece of crap.
