Backing up PS2 games - 11/18/2005 10:23:18 PM

This question is for anyone who has backed up a PS2 game. Should the dumping process that creates the image take a long time? I started the process and let it run all night and it was only 7.5% done in the mourning. I emailed Alcohol about this and got back a refferance to the procedure from their forums, but it did not address the issue of how long it should take.
         I am using a Lite-on 832S drive as my plextor 716SA won't even read the game disk" I'm not sure why!" It is a DVD+RW, book type DVD-Rom
         My proccessor is a 3.0GHz
         With 1.0 Gigs of Ram
         A Raptor 74mb HDD
         Windows XP Home Ed. SP2

   In short.... My computer should be up to the task.     So why does it take so long to create the image?          Any Ideas where I should start looking for the problem?

Making the image from the original disc normaly it is not such a problem but the time depends on the drive, and I mean not the speed off course. Since you tried with two different drives this is strange. OK I don't had ever a PS2 but this is logic.

Have you choose in Alcohol the correct protection?

Yes     A-ray scanner shows no protection, but the people at Alcohol said to set the data type to playstation 2 setting. They did not say anything about why the image download process was so slow.

Isit possible the disc you are backing up to have scratches so the drive is getting difficult to read?

PS2 discs are not something special, remember that you have to install a modchip to be able playback them

The problem is not with playback...yet. It's with the time it has taken to dump the files to create an image file. Twice I have had to abort the process because it should not take double digit hours to download a game disc. That is why I think that only someone that has done it before can answer the question of why it is taking so long. I do appreciate your input though, My mod chip is on it's way.
