I wasted a few disc on this before finally deciding to follow Andrews instructions. This is a frustrating game to backup, I suggest not trying to be creative and just follow his advice. For anyone having problems with this here it is again. 1. Use DVDDecrypter to create an ISO image file of the game (nothing special for this step) 2. Use ISOBuster (I downloaded version 1.7 and "registered" it) to extract all files from the ISO image file into a subfolder. ISO Buster can be found here: http://www.smart-projects.net/isobuster/ 3. Use the CD/DVD_Generator program to rebuild the DVD-ROM image. To do this, add all the ISOBuster extracted files and subfolder files in exact order: SYSTEM.CNF SLES_525.45 NTGUI.ELF SWBFRONT.ELF LICENSE CNF DATA IRX NETGUI NETIRX NOTE: SLUES_525.45 may also be called SLUS_208.98, apparently there are two versions of the game (this file has something to do with the on-line play, no worries), this has no effect on this copy method. So to get CD/DVD-ROM Generator you have to download, Sony Computer Entertainment is in the copyright under About, so I'm guessing this is one of the tools in the official dev kit? Basicly you can't copy this game without this tool. Anyway, someone already provided a link to download it, get it while you can: http://www.btinternet.com/~ps2rippininfo/tools/cddvdgen.exe Includes crack. 4. In CD/DVD_Generator proceed to create a new DVD-ROM project, click on the Volume tab and enter: For Disc Name use: SLES-52545 For Producer use: PLAYSTATION For Copyright holder use: SONY For License Area, select: America Leave information at the bottom blank, 4. Click on the Rec... tab. You'll get some error about device not being configured, click cancel or whatever.. then it will prompt you to create an image file. Give it a filename (starwars.ims) and point it to a new folder. Let it work, in about 5-10 minutes you'll have two files: starwars.000 starwars.001 along with some other small index files (you can delete those). 5. Go to the Start menu for Windows, go to Run and type in cmd, a command window will prop up. 6. Use DOS commands to navigate to the folder where the two starwars.00x files reside. MS-DOS Tutor: Tip: CD\ gets you to the root folder, CD.. takes you back one level CD [folder name] changes to the target folder. DIR list directory contents. Once you get to the folder where the two files are type in COPY /B STARWARS.000 + STARWARS.001 STARWARS.ISO. Now wait 5-10 minutes while STARWARS.ISO is created. 7. Use your favorite ISO burning software. I used Nero 6.3 to burn the ISO with Fuji DVD+R (8x max) media, burned at 2.4x (using Nero Finalize option). Burned using a LITE-ON LDW-411S burner with current firmware, on Windows XP SP2. The backup plays perfectly. Again, thanks to Andrew31 for his original post, 90% of this is reiteration.
