do anyone know how 2 backup gta:sa with out a mod chip or anything
use swap magic? well i have a question too... i borrowed the game from a friend, so how should i burn it? i went through some of the threads, but couldn't get a definite answer. how exactly should i burn the game to get it to work properly? dvd decrypter? nero?
Hey guys...first problem you might encounter backing up San Andreas is that I think it is a DVD 9 and unless you have a dual layer burner that supports DVD9 you have to get it to fit on a DVD5...Another problem is that some PS2's do not read burned DVD9's very well.So either you have to find a way to burn it to two DVD'5 or rip it to one DVD5 and you will lose some movies and things...I am looking for a tutorial and if I find it I will post it here for you guys...
Read somwhere on here that San Andreas is not a DVD9...if so it is simpler if you have a modchip...should be just fine with Decrypter read/write and burn at 1x...and if you are not modded and are using swapmagic, I am sure if there is an issue swapmagicfix.com will have the solution soon.
should i write both the iso and mds file or just the iso after i read it?
One final note....many people on here might give you a hard time about mentioning that you are backing up a game you borrowed and don't own...although you can always say you are providing your friend with a service...and that is not ilegal unless you keep a copy of a game you do not own....just keep that in mind because you might get some nasty responses if you are not careful and anyone suspects piracy...
the game is only 4gb and something that what it say
and just 2 let u know i do got the game i just dont know how 2 get it start the backup
I was talking to c00ns about being careful...if its 4 gb then you can back it up but your best hope of booting the disc is either swapmagic/or hd loader if you don't have a modchip amd swapmagic might and might not work without a fix.
so do i burn the iso or mds, or both?
I have swapmagic and it booted on first try, been bootin it up for a few days now and works perfect, nothing wrong at all!! Burnd with Ritek g04 DVD-R and DVD Decrypter @4x.
C00ns..if you are using the latest decrypter just select the mds file and burn that....it should work....burn at 1x.....
ok so i need a boot cd
