    I have used DVD Decrypter for making ISO images for DVD Movies but not much luck with PS2 games

    I agree with keras and steimy. Dvd Decrypter works great.

    read speed doesn't matter
    write at the slowest speed possible 1x, 2x should work fine

    just open decrypter
    MODE>ISO>READ
    copy to your hd, then..using this file
    MODE>ISO>WRITE

    This will work for most games...usually I do a search on a game before I back it up to find out if there are any special burning procedures. Some of the newer games like,

    Mercenaries
    Star Wars Battlefront...

    need for the .iso to be rebuilt

    some are special cases like God of War...which needs some extra steps.

    good luck, hope this helps

    Why do you need nero to run dvd decrypter? I don't have nero installed, and i run dvd decrypter fine.

    You don't need nero at all to run decrypter.

    Yeah as far as ps2 backups alcohol has worked great for me too.But Decrypter is a good free solution.

    heh, you don't need Nero to run Dvd Shrink either...

    In my opinion alcohol does a better job burning the image than decrypter or nero.
