Hi

Newbie here as you can guess.
I searched the Forums but couldn't find a clear answer.
How can i back up a PS2 DVD?
I have the new Pioneer A05 dvd writer.
I'm not sure which program i should use and how to use it.
Anyone here that can help me??
I tried it with Nero.
Made a dvd copy but it didn't work.
Maybe it was because it used the wrong media (Nashua DVD-RW)?
My PS2 has a messiah chip.
So what could i be doing wrong?

Anyone?
Thx

I'm not sure the Ps2 can read DVD-RWs...I might be wrong though

Try using DVD XCopy it does an "Exact copy"

actually, after carefully re-reading the first post, I'm surprised Tron didn't lock this topic, as you shouldn't be backing up from a back-up...but then again, perhaps you bought the game, backed it up, and your original was stolen or destroyed somehow. So I guess it isn't that bad.

LOL... I just saw it, and yes it is not legal to make more than one backup of software.Thanks Dolphinius_Rex you are right. You can make one backup to protect the original, but you must own that original. Post is edited.... If this sort of thing is asked again I will have no choice but lock it. Keep it legal.....[8]

Tron: okay, I'm a little unclear on somethings, perhaps you can help me? I just want to say right now that I'm not arguing, just asking for clarification

so what happens if you have a CD, you make a backup of it, and the original is (at some time) destroyed, or put into position where you can no longer use it? (not involving selling or lending it or anything along those lines) Are you really doomed to only have one copy. I mean, not having more then one backup at a time is fair, you don't need them...but I could see a situation where you might need to make a copy of a copy to preserve paid for material.

For instance, I have a copy of Starship titanic that I bought from a used game store. Disc 1 was scratched, and caused the game not to install properly, so I made a copy of it using Nero, and the copy worked fine. If I wanted to make a backup of the game, I would probably want to use the copy I made as the master, since the original is in very bad condition, especially now (it got...hurt, my cat knocked the jewel case over...). Would I legally have to pay for a new original disc to back it up?

bare in mind it's a moot issue since I don't plan on doing either (buying a new disc, or copying a copy) since I don't play it anymore anyways, I'm just giving an example.

Most software companies will replace the damaged disc if you have the original and it is damaged. There might be a fee, but it would not be much. I can not tell you that you can not make another copy from the copy, what I am saying is that since it is not legal, we just don't talk about it here. we just do not want to get in trouble with the Feds here. We keep it all legal to protect ourselves and the users. Of course the info we offer could be used to do things that are not legal, but we can not knowingly offer this type of help.

okay, that makes sense! thank you

one more question though, if you don't mind: can you provide a link to a place that has these laws easily listed for referencing? I've honestly never heard of not being allowed to make a copy of a copy, though I have heard that more then 1 backup was a no-no, so that's pretty simaler. thanks!

sorry this is getting so off topic to the original question! maybe there should be a sub-forum for these questions?? I'm sure people would like to know what they can and can't do in their respective countries

Dolphinius_Rex This has been discussed many times on our forum so if you do a search I am sure you will find what you are looking for we don't want this opening again as it has caused quite a few arguments in the past and we don't want it to start again !!!

Thanks for the help fellas.
i hope i haven't caused any trouble with my problem.
i surely didn't mean to.
So if i did, again, sorry.
DVD X copy doesn't read PS2 DVD's so i'm not sure how that program can help me back up my originals.
But it is a wonderfull program for backing up my DVD collection.
easy to use and a simple but great tutorial.

Anyway thanks for the help

Hi RedAlert
You haven't caused any problems Mate but as Tron has already said we will not allow any form of Piracy to be on the Forum as it is the fastest way to get a Forum closed down and we don't want that do we !!!
But if you didn't know it is not your fault so don't worry and if you need any help with making back-ups of your Legally Owned Software you know where we are !!!
I hope this Helps !!!

alright
i just installed my dvd burner and i was a little axious
i found out about dvdxcopy but i'm too cheap to pay for any software so i decided to use nero to copy my ps2 vice city game.

after reading other posts i found out that this will probally not work in my ps2 without a mod chip (and even then maybee not because it won't be an exact image) does anyone know if there is like a boot cd for ps2 that i could download instaed of a mod chip or a ny free software for making backups of protected dvd movies?
thanks
