    I'm new to ps2. After reading as much as I can I still dont get something.
    1- Whats a backup of a game and how is it done?

    2 - I dont understand why some people say to burn the back up in DVD-r and others say to do that in CD-r.

    3 - What kind of burner I need to burn a backup game on a DVD-r for ps2.

    Basically, what I need is a explanation of basics on backups, software and hardware needs and stuff.
    I think this will help a lot of people that, like me, are new.

    there's a great tutorial at the top of the PS2 forum that will answer all your questions nad give you directions on backups. but here's a quick run down.
    #1 - a backup is a copy of a game that you can use so your original doesn't get damaged and you dont loose 50 bucks.
    #2 - there are both cd based games and DVD based games. dvd's need to be burnt to dvd, and cd's are burnt to cdr's
    #3 - you will need a DVD burner to backup a DVD based game (unless you learn how to rip it to cdr size, but most of the time it's not worth it due to quality loss).
    check the tutorial, i'm sure it will help you.
