    New to PS2 backup and so far have had no success :-(

    DVD burner is a "LG GSA-4040B DVD±R/RW/RAM".

    Keep getting this "Not a valid PS2 disc" problem whilst trying to backup "Amplitude". To back it up I have tried two different types of media "Verbatim and Ridisc" using the following "DVD Decrypter" method:-

    1) Insert original disc and open DVD decrypter.
    2) Select Mode > Iso > Read and save the files to hdd.
    3) When complete, select Mode > Iso > Write and burn at 1x speed.

    When finished the above, to test if the backup has worked I try it in my PS2 using my Fliptop & SwapMagic v3.6... I let SwapMagic load then put in the backup I have just made, hit X and get "Not a valid PS2 disc"

    Hope someone can help cuz i am about ready to throw my PS2 out of the window & set my swapmagic disc on fire!

    Here, this might help ya.

    Save the PS2 files to your hdd with DVD Decrypter.
    Now, insert a blank DVD and look at the panel on the right and look at [bold] SUPPORTED SPEEDS [/bold] your disc wont work unless you burn at a speed that the DVD supports. ;)
