    Sorry, I searched this board and couldn't find the SPECIFIC answer to my problem:

    I am backing up Xenosaga, and I bought a Ritek DVD +R DL disc, but after DVD Decrypter rips it, it doesn't want to burn it... something about "No Seek Complete"?

    With any other game, it's a simple Read and then Write, but with this whole DL disc, it's causing me problems. It read perfectly, but how do I burn it onto a DVD9?

    Apparently, my new v12 slimline PS2 (with Matrix Infinity 1.38 mod) will read DL discs.... so is there anything I can do?

    You can fit xenosaga onto a sl disk with a patch.

    Dude edit out your email not aloud on AD, I did not use cdvd gen i think your only need that if your rebuliding the iso you self, i used the 3 disc kit and the thing works fine and as far as i know it never uused cdvd gen.

    http://alucard.cc/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=30

    That is the link to the page on alucard that has the 3 disc rip kit as for the cdvd gen i cant help you coz i never used it for xeno.

    It's not fair to the alucard guys that you direct link, man :( Those guys do a lot of work to simply directly link to their stuff.

    For future reference : Whatever tools you need you can get at alucard.cc or backuptools.co.uk

    I did say goto alucard but as ferdzjp could not find it i gave the guy a link to the exact page to save alot of time and posts. Plus he still have to sign up to access the downloads part of alucard i do see were your coming from thou and in future i will try not to post direct links unless it is needed.

    Oh well, I didn't mean to sound like a bitch, that's not my style. Yeah, you do have to sign up, and sign in for alucard.cc, but hey, it's better than PS2NFO.com. Alucard lets you sign up with a free email account, whereas PS2NFO doesn't.

    And yeah, sometimes searching the site for ripkits/fixes is a bit bothersome.

    Well, I'll tell you my experience with one of the ripkits from there. I tried to rip the NTSC version to three DVD5s. The ripkit SEEMED to work, and all three booted up the screens, but when I would try to start a new game on disc 1, it'd take me to the FMV near the end of the game (Where Junior and Albedo square off), when I would try to skip, the game would freak out.

    I gave up, and decided to just start the game over on my original copy, and decided that if I scratched it to hell, then oh well.

    But yeah, I didn't have success with that ripkit from Alucard, so don't feel weird if you don't either.
