    ok, i see so many people now having the same problems
    But there is no real easy solution for why they do not work.
    It could be many different things and you will have to narrow down the problem. If you have an actual ISO image and burn it to disc then it should play in your PS2.

    If you have an MDF & MDS file it is most likely a CD game and
    needs to be burned to a CD.

    here are some guides:
    http://www.xtreme-source.com/tutorials-playstation-2/2025-how-backup-psx-ps2-cd-rom-games.html
    http://www.xtreme-source.com/tutori...dvd-games-nero-burning-rom-alcohol-120-a.html
    http://www.xtreme-source.com/tutori...ckup-ps2-dvd-games-dvd-decrypter-imgburn.html

    if you downloaded it then just start the tutorial where you burn the image and forget about the part where you are making the image from an original disc

    Here are possible causes as to why your games will not work.
    1. You are using low quality DVD's. I can not stress enough how important it is to use high quality DVD's and CD to do games on.
    2. your burners firmware may be out of date and need to be updated
    this will help with burn quality and media compatibility
    3. you are not burning at a correct speed. If you use 4X as your burning speed it will generally work on 8X and 16X speed DVD's.
    If you are using 4X speed DVD's then burn them at 1X, but really i think 4X speed DVD's are too slow and i do not really care for 16X either so i suggest a good 8X speed DVD.

    I like DVD Decrypter the best for burning ISO files, a second choice for me would be IMGburn, which is the same program except that it can not read a game and make and ISO, it can only write the ISO to a blank DVD.

    You only need to extract the first file in the sequence (usually named game.rar or game.r001/.001) and the rest of the files will be uncompressed automatically. If you need step-by-step instructions on how to extract RAR archives, see Hursty's WinRAR Guide. When the files have been extracted (uncompressed), a CD/DVD image file will be produced. The CD/DVD image is an exact digital replica of a CD/DVD, whereby all of the data is stored in one file to completely preserve the data structure and integrity of the CD/DVD. Some common disk image formats include: .BIN/.CUE, .IMG, .NRG, .MDF/.MDS, .CCD, and .IMG. These disk images can be burned using software such as Nero, Alcohol 120%, DVD Decrypter, and ImgBurn.

    yes, you only need to extract the first one.
    it will then extract them all building your ISO file.
    Each little rar file is not an ISO, it is just a small part of one.
    What Winrar does is it takes an ISO file and breaks it down
    into many smaller compressed parts making it easier and faster to
    upload or download.

    Did usama1992 ever get Lego Star Wars burned? He obviously has the first one as that game DEFINITELY is a CD-ROM game and not a DVD-ROM. I was actually surprised to find out that a game of that “size” (gameplay wise) was so small and could fit on a CD-ROM.

    Use Nero to burn it and you’ll be fine.

    Try either DVD Decrypter or Nero then to burn image.
    I don't know what your image file is but sometimes peeps make something other than ISO images and you may need to convert the file first.

    This site is great and the search function is awesome.
    You can find most things and tutorials by typing in what it is you are after. All this stuff takes some time and lots of reading to start with.

    You can do a search for converters. I like poweriso myself. There is ultraiso also.
    You can try here also for converters: http://www.cdmediaworld.com/hardware/cdrom/cd_utils_9.shtml
    At the top of this forum is a software section and you may find things there.

    A good place for ps2 tools: http://www.sksapps.com/index.php?page=hd.html

    http://www.exploitstation.com/index.php?page=elfs

    Another good forum on ps2: http://teammodders.com/forum/

    And yes you can find dvd decrypter on this site by typing in the search button. Nero also in the software section.

    Depends on whats your setup. PS2 fat model, or slim. Do you have a hd attached or not.

    The games burnt will not boot by themselves no. You either need to have a modded ps2 or use the slide tool or get flip top with the fat PS2, magic keys II for the slim ps2. And then use either swap magic 3.6 or the latest SM 3.8 coder.


    Depending on your setup and what you want to do, there are a few ways of getting the games to play as backups.

    There are many good tutorials here, just type what you want into the search.

    there are some pretty useful guides in these forums so look around theyre prolly stickied. but the best way to become good at these things is trial and error, and a little help from the net as well b4 u start! but if u can buy Alcohol 120% then do it, if not DVD Decrypter should do the job. Always burn and read at the SLOWEST speed possible. some games need to be patched (e.g. Fifa Street 2) and you should look into that if your backup doesn't work.

    hope this helps!
