    Why would'nt you use the other thread you started?
    (Basically asking the exact same question?)

    PS2 games are actually pressed DVD/CD discs, they are not burned. PS2 games use the Burst Cutting Area (BCA) of the disc to identify themselves to the PS2 unit. The BCA is not part of a disc that you can burn on, it is only replicated on pressed discs. So, the only way to play backups is to get boot-discs or a mod-chip.

    IF YOUR USING SWAP MAGIC DISKS THEY MUST BE ORIGINALS

    Some newer games have to be rebuilt.
    Mercanaries,God of war,
    GT4---IMPOSSIBLE so far

    There are guides all over the forum if you look around.

    Use Quality Media I use

    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<-----------------VERBATIM MY CHOICE #1
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)<--------------FUJIFILM (made in japan) MY CHOICE #2


    ***** BURN AT NO MORE THAN 2X****** <-----------(IMPORTANT)

    Using DVD Decrypter

    1. Start DVD Decrypter
    2. Select Mode, go down to ISO Read
    3. Select your Reader & Destination
    4. “Decrypt” the ISO Image to the Hard Drive
    5. Wait for the ISO Image to be made
    6. Select Mode, go down to ISO Write
    7. Select the ISO Image file you made, click “Open”
    8. Select your Burner, Write speed & Burn the ISO

    Try searching first then post when you have problems.
    AND NOT MULTI_POSTING (forum rules)

    Good luck :)

    I've burned Burnout 3 and you don't need to rebuild it. But my question is why, if you have this post, must you post the same(except not including the burnout 3 part) in a different post? Remember jborlace's post? You posted the same exact one there. Just wait for an answer.
