    I have a duel layer DVD burner and was wondering if I could backup my games [bold]without the use of any type of Modification to my PS2[/bold]. If I understand things corectly the problem with burning PS2 games is the fact that they are on Duel Layer Media. Oh, also what would be the best media to burn my game on, if it is possible.

    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.

    We all wouldnt be buying modchips and such If we didnt need them

    Ps2 does not read dl or rw disks.

    FROM: http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

    The following list is in preference order. The best discs are near the top of the list.
    Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
    PVC = Pioneer = (-R)(-RW)
    MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<-----------------VERBATIM MY CHOICE #1
    TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)<--------------FUJIFILM (made in japan) MY CHOICE #2

    Decent discs, though not perfect, about 85-95%
    success rate:

    RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
    SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
    INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
    RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)

    There are VERy few PS2 games on dual layered discs. 99% of them are on single layered discs.
