| In order to Burn and Play PS2 Torrents you first need to get a program called http://shop.alcohol-soft.com/go_dl.php <This Is only a Trial. To get the Full Version go to http://www.Suprnova.org
How To Burn PS2 Games
1.After you have gotten the program and have installed Alcohol 120%, open up the program.
2.Select "Image Burning Wizard". Browse to find the Image files that you have downloaded. This can be a number of different file types since Alcohol 120% supports all Image burning file formats.
3.After selecting the file ".mds" file it will bring you to a refreshed screen, click next. 4. Depending if it is a DVD image or a CD image, choose 4xfor CD Image or 2x for DVD Image. It is very important you choose those burning speeds no matter how fast you can burn. PS2's cant read CD or DVD's that well at the wrong speeds. Click Next.
5. Select Raw DAO, which means "Disc-At-Once".
6.Insert the CD-R or DVD-R. Many Modded PS2's including mine cant read CD or DVD +R. Use -R always.
7.Click next and the Image will start burning to your DVD or CD.

|shouldnt this be in playstation section?|
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 6 2004, 07:43 AM|
|No because we get people who ask stupid questions like this here because alot of people download PS2 games through BitTorrent now. Plus we don't have a computer tech support section.|
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 6 2004, 07:55 AM|
|This is about burning games that you got online through Bit Torrent. Thats why its in this section.|
|Posted by: tensai Oct 7 2004, 12:19 PM|
| so, if i want to play burned ps2 games
i HAVE to use the program you mentioned above or can i just use a regular burning program but set the speed lower?
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 7 2004, 02:51 PM|
|Dont make it hard, this program is the best for burning Images. With this program you wont need any other Burning Image Program. Plus it supports all Image Burning formats. Many programs dont support each type.|

|do u need a mod chip in ur ps2 to play these games|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 7 2004, 09:26 PM|
yes, and i'm stil trying to find a way that's $100 or less to get that done...
|Posted by: aa87 Oct 9 2004, 07:02 AM|
|Can anybody reccomend a good mod chip, price doesnt matter, as long as its the best.|
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 9 2004, 07:10 AM|
|Yeah there's modchip.com. They have different variations like a boot loader that uses a memory card hack to play the games. Lately there's something called HDAdvance out there that allows you to load your games to a hard drive and boot them off that. Have no idea where to get it though.|
|Posted by: aa87 Oct 9 2004, 07:38 AM|
| ok, new question, what about wiring difficulty, im interested in this one. I can decently solder, but my dad has alot more experience with that.
Also, is modchip.com and mod-chip.com same company or what, they seem to offer same chips at same prices basically
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 9 2004, 10:46 AM|
|Go here people. http://www.Modchipstore.com. I have ordered from here before. Just never get the slide card people. Also make sure to find out what version # your PS2 is. Its very important to find it out.|
|Posted by: Kev Oct 9 2004, 10:50 AM|
|Isn't this techincally illegal?|
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 9 2004, 10:53 AM|
|Yes it is. I remember when Modding your PS2 got big so officials started to crack down people. But it seems they havent been cracking down anyone lately. Probably since its something that many people do now.|
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 9 2004, 11:59 AM|
|Probly becuase people have a right to backup their games and be able to play them. That and there's a big import crowd to think about too. Yeah you can play bootlegs on it but more people are buying games now than bootleging seeing how many games are on DVDs now and blank DVDs aren't cheap. If I do get a PS2 anytime soon I'd probly get the HDAdvance one since I found out how much it costs and imo its a better choice since it won't void your warentee. Stuff like this is impossible to stop because different countries have different laws so you can easily base a company that sells modchips in a country other than the states. Plus hackers always find a way around things, look at the GameCube for example. Someone found a bug in Phantasy Star Online that allowed them to send commands directly to the GameCube's CPU via the network adapter. In turn they found out how to stream data copied from GameCube discs using the gamecube's drive to their PC & vice versa. Its not something you can stop so its not surprising they aren't following the RIAA's example dealing with this sort of thing.|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 9 2004, 05:48 PM|
|could anyone give a detailed explanation/cost to the HDAdvance?|
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 9 2004, 09:36 PM|
| Network adapter: $30 bucks used from a GameStore
Hard Drive: $40 - $50 for a standard 40gig found in any computer store
HDAdvance: $30 legally off an Internet store but Free if you can get a hold of a hacked copy that'll manage to run without a mod chip.
Basicly from what I've found out HDAdvance is like Alchohol 120% for the PS2. Copies the game disc to an ISO file on the hard drive and boots the game from this ISO as if it was in the CD drive. Supposally this is illegal in the US, but who cares? Technically the MODChip is illegal too yet alot of people still use it in the states. This good enough of an explanation?

| does any1 no how 2 burn .nrg files
when i burn the .nrg file and play it on ma ps2, it works but its black and white and the screen is shaky...... does any1 no how 2 fix this problem??
and i cant burn it RAW DOA cause the option isnt available
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 10 2004, 07:38 PM|
|Try using NeroBurning Rom to burn the image since NRG is Nero's format. I've found sometimes A120% doesn't burn them right.|
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 10 2004, 07:52 PM|
|Come on people, All you need is Alcohol 120%. It solves all your Image burning problems. It supports all formats.|
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 10 2004, 08:40 PM|
| Yeah it supports all formats, however, it does have a problem with nero images. Everything else works fine, but me and my friends always had problems using A120% with nero images. Plus its always good to have a backup program because sometimes when something doesn't work in one program it may work in another.
Aznpride: forgot to mension that if it doesn't work in Nero then the image is probly corrupted.

| why do we need DVD-R? what's the difference between that DVD+R?
b/c i don't think i can burn DVD-R =\
and is special stage a CD or DVD disc?
b/c the one i got from suprnova is 802MB....
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 11 2004, 11:10 AM|
|Special Stage is a CD. This is why its gotta be written in RAW DAO (Disk-At-Once) mode. You can fit 800mb on a 700mb cd if you remove all the error correction routines from the CD's filesystem. DVD-R & DVD+R are two different standards of DVD burners. I never really looked into the exact differences but they are different enough to be considered seperate technologies. Majority of modern DVD burners supports both formats. Plus from what I understand DVD-R is quickly becoming the standard recordable DVD format.|
|Posted by: aznpride Oct 11 2004, 11:47 AM|
| i cant seem 2 use nero burner 2 burn ma .nrg files cause ma nero doesnt support ma dvd burner
and does it matter if i use a DVD+RW 2 burn ma ps2 games instead of a DVD-R cause this way if it doesnt work then i didnt waste a dvd???
and when i try burnin .nrg files wit alcohol 120% it doesnt give me the option of RAW DOA and it only gives me DVD DOA so wht do i do???
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 11 2004, 01:25 PM|
| What version of Nero are you using and where did you get it?
I think it depends on the version of your PS2. I would assume older versions (like when it first came to the US) wouldn't be able to read the RW but more recent versions would.
Hrm.... not sure what DVD DAO is (I'm waiting for those blue laser DVD burners before I get one). I'll look into it though and get back to ya.
|Posted by: aznpride Oct 11 2004, 01:30 PM|
| the nero(nero express) version im usin is 220.127.116.11 bundled
it came wit ma comp........ so im guessin if i get a newer version of nero it mite work
and the dvd+rw does work on ma ps2 xcept the screen is just shaky.... myb its copyrite laws im not sure
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 11 2004, 02:59 PM|
| Nero cant read all DVD burners no matter what version you have. It different for all versions. Older versions read my burner but not some of the newer ones, even though I have Sony Drives. Just please use Alcohol 120%.. Dont make this so hard on yoursselfs.
Thats PAL. If your in an NTSC contry then PAL will not work for you. it doesnt have to do with your PS2. It has to do with the Framerate of your TV. You can buy a switch at Best Buy to switch between NTSC and PAL. PAL is used in Europe. NTSC is used in Japan and North America. Watch what you download.
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 11 2004, 03:19 PM|
Currently Nero is at version 6.x. A newer copy might work. If things still don't work try downloading the game from a different source.
Guess what, it does have to do with the system because the game doesn't produce the graphics. Me and my friends play imported games all the time on our american systems with our american TVs and we never have a problem like that because of PAL & NTSC differences (and I have an old tv & vcr so the age of the tv is irrelavant). System graphic chipsets varies from country to country based on what TV standard they use. Either Aznpride's PS2 can't read the DVD+RW/DVD+/-Rs right, A120% isn't burning it right, or the image is just plain corrupted.
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 05:16 PM|
| how do i check if i can burn onto DVD-R? because i don't think i can, and i want to be able to play DVD games
and if i can't burn onto DVD-R, can i try DVD+R?
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 11 2004, 05:36 PM|
|What DVD burner do you have? If its one of those out of the box PCs that came with it check your pc brand's website for details. Majority of modern DVD burners support both + and - formats so it wouldn't be surprising if you could burn a DVD-R.|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 06:00 PM|
| alcohol 120% only has the burning speeds of 12X, 16X and 24X
what do i do?
should i just choose 16X for a CD-R?
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 11 2004, 06:05 PM|
|Insert the CD before you start the program. I doubt that you cant burn at 4x, but I guess there is always that chance.|
|Posted by: SuperMazdaKart Oct 11 2004, 06:18 PM|
so is there a guide to copying a game straight from an original game disc?
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 06:19 PM|
|how many kb/s does 4X burn at?|
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 11 2004, 06:21 PM|
|I think 4x is like 1200kbps|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 06:24 PM|
| my only options are:
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 11 2004, 06:28 PM|
|try 1800 then.|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 06:39 PM|
| what version of alcohol should i get if this doesn't work?
|Posted by: RakeRon Oct 11 2004, 06:41 PM|
|Dunno, are you using the latest version?|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 06:46 PM|
is what i have, got it from suprnova
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 11 2004, 07:17 PM|
|Try getting the newest version from Suprnova.org, not the trial version.|
|Posted by: Maverick Oct 11 2004, 07:17 PM|
That is the version i have and yeah i got it from Suprnova, and i can burn at 4X but i dont have the option of "RAW DAO", only "RAW SAO + SUB". Is there another version i need to use to burn in this option?
Edit: I do have the option of "DAO / SAO" as well, but that is the only DAO option i have.
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 11 2004, 07:19 PM|
|Like I said, get the newest version, nothing will work if you dont have the option Raw Dao. Sao is no good. It means something different.|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 07:55 PM|
| what is the newest version?
everything is still at least 12x...i can't get it to brun at 4x
|Posted by: R-icoche-T Oct 11 2004, 07:56 PM|
Use "DVD Decrypter" to make an image file from the cd onto your hd.
Then reburn the img.
|Posted by: Maverick Oct 11 2004, 08:14 PM|
hehe we posted at the same time, so i didnt see your previous post.
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 08:16 PM|
|anyone know of another good program? it's not working|
|Posted by: Maverick Oct 11 2004, 09:01 PM|
| OK I figured out how to get Alcohol to burn "Raw DAO". I had the full version all along, which can be obtained at Suprnova under the name "Alcohol120_18.104.22.1685_retail_Incl_KEY".
Now what i had to do to be able to burn PS2 games was, go in Alchohol 120% and then go to File --> OPTIONS --> Data Type Setting --> under Disk Type choose "Playstation 2" --> Recording Options --> move "RAW DAO" over to the right box (pretty self-explanatory). Then hit OK.
Then I was able to Burn PS2 games in that format, its just not automatically set for RAW DAO, you have to set it. Well that is what i had to do to get it into that RAW DAO format, for those that couldnt get it.
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 11 2004, 09:07 PM|
|...I thought I made that somewhat clear for people. Well I guess not.|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 11 2004, 09:25 PM|
| char, i have that same version, yet i can't choose 4x
but i can choose DOA RAW....
|Posted by: Maverick Oct 12 2004, 06:07 AM|
|Hrm, it took me some playing with it to get it to burn in the correct format, but i dont know why you cant go low enough for 4X. My burner cant go lower than 4X so i cant burn at the suggested speed for DVD-R Images. My burner is an external dvd drive though. Takumi Trueno mentioned that his modded PS2 cant play CD-Rs, i dont think mine can either. I have a flip top.|
|Posted by: BiBi Oct 12 2004, 08:51 AM|
| If you use cheapass DVD media like Princo you might run into problems, the ps2 laser is picky about the kinds of media it reads. I use Ritek myself and never had a problem. I burn at the lowest speed with http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=53#comments.
For CDs I agree Alcohol 120% is the best.
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 12 2004, 02:54 PM|
I can play CD's on my PS2. Read carefully, I said that some PS2s can't read things like +R. Look at your CD's to see if it is -R or +R. Also check if your CD/DVDdrive can burn those two different types.
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 12 2004, 03:08 PM|
| could it be that my burner is TOO fast?
or should i just try another program?
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 12 2004, 03:11 PM|
|...That can be a possiblity. Im not sure if they now release burners with only faster speeds. Try a different program if you want.|
|Posted by: aznpride Oct 12 2004, 03:46 PM|
| thx 4 all the advice guys...... i finally got the games that i wanted 2 play 2 burn
it turned out that
1) i needed 2 use a cd instead of a dvd... 4 1 of ma games (rookie mistake)
2) i had 2 convert ma .nrg file 2 .iso file and convert that from pal to ntsc and then burn that
but thx 4 the help guys
|Posted by: R-icoche-T Oct 12 2004, 06:56 PM|
I sitll cant select RAW DAO
|Posted by: otakurave Oct 13 2004, 08:47 PM|
ok, I can change all that information and etc but then when I start going into the Image burning wizard and then browse for the file and etc, then it gets to the option where it finalizes it before you start to burn, it's stuck on DVD DAO, and it's the only option. help!
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 13 2004, 09:13 PM|
|If your using Alcohol 120% Im sure it wont saw DVD DAO, its says for me, Raw DAO. Anways maybe its a DVD image so it says that. I have a slightly older version. Some things maybe different for you people. But they dont change things much.|
|Posted by: otakurave Oct 13 2004, 09:25 PM|
I have a retailed version of Alcohol 120%, and I'm trying to burn an ISO, I've already wasted roughly 3 DVD-R's, can't seem to get it right or something >_<
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 13 2004, 09:31 PM|
|Does the burn mess up, or can you not play it on your PS2?|
|Posted by: otakurave Oct 13 2004, 10:03 PM|
They don't seem to load correctly, or loads VERY long, as in being not able to play. and I hear odd sounds emitting from the PS2.

|Posted by: NarutoZer0 Oct 19 2004, 04:45 PM|
|You can't use a DVD+R because your Playstation might not be able to read it.|
|Posted by: BiBi Oct 19 2004, 05:10 PM|
|it depends which version u have. +R works on mine|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 19 2004, 06:07 PM|
| i tried it on +R, DVD DOA, 2.4X (my minimum)
and it works fine
but, i have a question, will these differences from Takumi's guide
hurt my PS2?
i.e. the wrong burn speed, etc.
and how do i burn those kind of files?
i downloaded star ocean 3, and it's about71 of those kind of files..
how do i burn those?
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 19 2004, 07:26 PM|
|It depends on your PS2 version. Some PS2's have better Disc readers, others dont. The guide I put up is the safest way to do it. Also using DVD-rip hurts your PS2. That is from trying to read a game that should be on a DVD, not a CD. DVDrips are games from DVD's and put onto a CD if you didnt know. Avoid DVDrips all you can. They hurt your PS2 more, making it work harder to read the PS2.|
|Posted by: krazykraka Oct 19 2004, 08:22 PM|
| xkhol: the ptc-sotet are have a file extention of *.rar.....use winrar to decompress and then burn the file with whatever program.....if that is the dvd version of Star Ocean 3..then there are 2 dvds...... and it looks like you only have 1 of the 2 dvds
only a few ps2's can read dvd+r....i dont know why it seems random....riteks dvdrs are probably the best ones to use because the dye that they use on the discs and the ps2 doesnt try as hard to read it(note: using any dvdrs will kill they ps2 laser faster than just playing original games)and they are about $40-55 for a 100pk
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 19 2004, 08:59 PM|
i archived them into a .rar file, do i just burn that?
because alcohol 120% doesn't recognize it as an image file
was that wat i was supposed to do?
ok, i uncompressed one, it's an ISO file but it's like 4.3 GB!
and there's like 78 of the files, which ones do i burn?
do i ahve to uncompress all of them??!!
|Posted by: krazykraka Oct 19 2004, 09:23 PM|
|you burn ISO file which is the 4.3 gb file....you dont need to decompress the rest since they are a rar set...so if you decompressed the ISO file without any problems then just burn the ISO....im not familiar with Alcohol 120% so i dont know if it can load the ISO file......Nero should be able to load it fine....but just use whatever is easiest|
|Posted by: xkhol Oct 19 2004, 09:41 PM|
| i just decompressed the first one, burned it as an ISO and it works,
but why are there so many other files?
|Posted by: krazykraka Oct 19 2004, 11:11 PM|
|makes it easier to download and if a certain file is corrupt it would be easier to fix a smaller file than to download the whole ISO again...since the ISO works you dont need the rar files anymore but its up to you|
|Posted by: e\/o Oct 30 2004, 04:33 PM|
| im a newb to burning ps2 games and i got a few questions
1. how do i tell if the game im burning is cd-r or dvd-r?
2. is the datatype supposed to be set at custumized?
3. i can only select the speeds 8x 16x and 31x, why is that?
4. when i press start it justs goes to a screen that says empty disk and the elapsed time goes on forever and nothing happens?
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 30 2004, 04:36 PM|
| 1. If the image is bigger then 800mb then its a DVD image.
2. The data is supposed to be set to customize.
3. You can only select those speeds because it is a CD image. Not DVD.
4. Are you using Alchol 120%? Make sure you have a blank disc, a good CD/DVD Image and make sure its supposed to be on a CD or DVD.
|Posted by: e\/o Oct 30 2004, 04:49 PM|
|so if the image is bigger than 800 i use a dvd disc and if it is smaller then cd|
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 30 2004, 04:53 PM|
| Y usally around that size. Sometimes you have to do overburns on some images. Which is going slightly over the CD s capacity. Like 720mb on a 700mb CD.
Edit: I Forgot to add, that not all CD burners can overburn.
|Posted by: e\/o Oct 30 2004, 04:59 PM|
| dam i just bought some dvd-r and the file i wanna burn at the moment is 600mb
is it possible to burn things below 800mb on dvds
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 30 2004, 05:13 PM|
|Sure you can. it wont work though. . Make sure to check where you got the image from saying if its a DVD or DVDrip. I doubt a full dvd will make up to only 600mb. 600mb has to be a CD image.|
|Posted by: e\/o Oct 30 2004, 05:34 PM|
|lol actually the file is the battle gear 3 torrent u posted|
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 30 2004, 05:42 PM|
| You should have said that then. Its supposed to be on a CD. Im not sure if I said that in the topic, lemme double check.
Edit: I was correct. i did say that its supposed to be on a CD.
|Posted by: e\/o Oct 31 2004, 06:20 PM|
| yay it works!!
i downloaded something else that isn't an image file but lots of files like models, movies data, anim etc
ill get to the point, HOW DO I BURN ALL THAT!?!?!?!
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Oct 31 2004, 06:53 PM|
|If its not an image file you cant burn it. Simple as that.|
|Posted by: Type R toM Nov 13 2004, 09:37 PM|
u mentioned overburning. it depends on the cd burner? the driver im usin to burn my cd's is a regular compact disc rewritable that came with my comp. o by the way im tryin to burn Initial D:SS
|Posted by: TNK Nov 14 2004, 09:36 PM|
| Ok... My friend has a burned copy of ID:SS and I was wondering if I could Burn this copy to copy? If not is there any other way I could Burn it?
Also if it helps I'm using my Laptop and I have only one DVD burner drive.
Also I remember in the Past...Ppl could burn Games with BootUp software with the Game and you wouldnt need a Modchip. Could you still do that with the PS2?
|Posted by: Takumi Trueno Nov 14 2004, 10:39 PM|
|PLaying Burned games on the PS2 is not possible without a modchip. Unless you have the Slide Card, which doesnt always work. I would know this since my firned has one.|
|Posted by: TNK Nov 16 2004, 06:12 PM|
|Is there a way I could burn my Friend's game though?|
|Posted by: Taiki Nov 16 2004, 10:33 PM|
| i downloaded ps2 wwe smackdown vs raw... its a tar file but it got corrupted. any program that can fix this without me redownloading it (2.5 gigs) or purchasing a program.
btw, i downloaded this using irc? is irc good if i want ps2 games?
|Posted by: krazykraka Nov 16 2004, 11:15 PM|
| tnk: you need 2(1 to read and 1 to write) drives if you want to do a 1:1 copy on the fly.......i dont remember if you can do it on ps2 dvd games though since i never tried it
hklnt: depends on how many files you downloaded.....if it came in only 1 tar file then you would have to download it again......i havent dealt with *.tar files in a while...so im not sure.......but if you downloaded multiple *.tar files then i think they can be treated like *.rar files...sooo go back to the place you downloaded the game from....and see if there are any files *.par or *.par2.....if there are some of those.....download all of them and download quickpar 0.9.1.0 (google it).....if you cant get the *.par/2 files............
|Posted by: TNK Nov 16 2004, 11:20 PM|
|so ur saying it COULD Possibly work if I did Copy to Copy?|

anyways... this is out of the topic, but do you guys know any tweaks or programs that doesnt require purchase that increase your connection (download) speed?

| LOL those "speed up" download programs are all scams/spywares
if u r using BT just make sure u don't have any firewall blocking the necessary ports to connect to the trackers
best place to download ps2 games is by newsgroups.

| hklnt: im not sure why it might be corrupted..........ask the person you got it from and see if the tar file is corrupt on their end....make sure that the file is complete as well....other than that i dont know

Whats wrong with the slide card? It looks cool. Might be bad for the tray. How bout this thing?
I cant spend a whole bunch of money on mod chips, in fact I'm probably cuttin it close asking for this.

|go with the modchip if you can.....the DUO 2 SE is only $21 at foundmy.com....a reliable place(thats where i got mine from)....it does the basics with a low count of wires.....the DMS3/4, matrix infinity, and crystal chips are very good but they cost more with some extra features|

If you havn't already, burn IDSS to a CD like Takumi Trueno said on 4x. If that doesn't work then you will probably have to buy the game.

| Just to let you guys know, the slidecard and DVD-Magic trick works really good. I've heard there's a problem with dust getting in the ps2 because the front panel is off the disc tray, but it's not a big problem for me, just try to keep it covered with a towel or something when not playing.
(PS: This may have been covered earlier through the thread, but I only read the first page, so since i'm being honest please don't bash me for hitting a topic already discussed. thanks. )
Also is it ok to request other ps2 games in the torrent section as well?
|Posted by: blink182house Dec 28 2004, 08:47 AM|
From previous experiences with xbox modding and playstation1 burning/modding, if the suggested way doesn't work... you need to try other stuff. Since it's said above how to burn it, and it must be a CD, you need to try different brands of CD's. Try CD-R CD-RW, etc, just try small things. Setting your burner to the SLOWEST speed is the best, not just 4x but 1x if possible.

| Ummm... Alcohol 120 says that my CPU can't burn RAW DAO, what am I supposed to do now?
It says: Support recording method: DAO, RAW SAO, RAW SAO+SUB, TAO, DVD DAO
EDIT: I have burned games before tho, but they usually have errors. I've used RAW SAO + SUB in the past. I have made back up copies of Harvest Moon, BG3, and Gradius V, now I'm trying to make a CD back up of IDSS, but it doesn't work...

|Posted by: bao Jan 7 2005, 08:13 PM|
|use winrar to extract the iso.|
|Posted by: Odintu Jan 16 2005, 10:49 PM|
Regarding number 3, the person asked this: "i can only select the speeds 8x 16x and 31x, why is that?" By CD image, you mean the file that you download to burn? or the CD that you are burning the file onto?
Oh, and if I can't select 4x, would 8x still be a safe speed?
|Posted by: Excel Feb 3 2005, 03:02 PM|
I got a game like this too. Do you have to burn the Iso from each file onto 1 CD, or is it enough to just burn 1 of them from 1 of the files?
|Posted by: krazykraka Feb 4 2005, 07:04 PM|
| -use winrar on the first file (___.part01) you only need to do it the first file
-extract the ISO to a location of ur choosing
-burn the ISO with nero/alcohol 120% or whatever you want

Whatever speed you burn at. The disc reader will try to read it at that speed.
Try to burn a CD at 24x and you will hurt your PS2.

I would have been nice to get an English version, but Tokyopop was trying to get the rights to publish it so I'm glad they didn't.
Do you suppose they were denied by Sega because they wanted to change the music? I think they use their crap because they don't think english audiences like Eurobeat.

| this is probably a stupid question and may be already mentioned, but here it goes anyways
i downloaded a game,
extrated the file with part1 on it,
then extrated the ISO,
and in that folder there are other files like .IRX, .IDX (a subtitle file), and some others,
and also the IMG file is 259 kb
The unextracted ISO file is 2.83 Gb, but when its extracted, its only 4.14 Mb
do i burn only the IMG file or everything that was extracted from the ISO file, or just the rar ISO file itself?
|Posted by: BOZZ Aug 8 2005, 12:25 PM|
What are the exact files you have extracted?
|Posted by: tensai Aug 8 2005, 02:18 PM|

the original file has the extension ISO
|Posted by: BOZZ Aug 8 2005, 05:50 PM|

What software are u using?
|Posted by: tensai Aug 8 2005, 06:53 PM|
| im using Nero 6
so theres no need to extract the ISO file, then what do i do?

|Posted by: blazingluke Oct 2 2005, 03:56 PM|
Make sure that you're writing the disc at 2X.
Then if that wasn't your problem, get http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/download.php?mode=ViewCategory&catid=5 and use it to mount the image onto a fictional drive to do a 1-1 copy with your DVD-writing program.
Daemon tools is really neat! You can store DVD ISOs on your hard drive and load them onto a drive with daemon tools to read them on your computer as if you put the actual disc in the machine! It also has some anti-anti-piracy stuff too!

|Posted by: blazingluke Jan 21 2006, 02:34 PM|
I've got a thin PS2 as well. I use swap disc. It works perfectly for me.
The thing is though, you need to cover 3 sensors in the first and second versions of the slim line, but in the versions after the ceramic white (I'm pretty sure) you have to open the entire thing up to cover up this one sensor they put on the bottom of the mainboard.
I think you'll need a japanese swap disc too...they have specific discs for Europe and USA, but I'm not sure about japanese.
You may have to go with modding.
Well, there's my bit of info for you! I hope I've been at least somewhat helpful to you.

| The PS1 was the easiest console (well... no, N64 was easier) to allow to play burned and imported games. Make it so the tray door sensor is always depressed and get yourself a swap disc. Bam, problem solved.
The PS2 is similar, though a little more complicated. If you take the faceplate off of the disc tray and get yourself a swap disc (as I recall, Version 1 and 2 GameSharks work) and slide card (very specialized, can be found the same places you'd find modchips) you can play imports and burned games without a chip and as long as you still have the faceplate, without voiding the warranty. Booyah.
BlazingLuke is right, also, Johnnydepp. You'd need a Japanese swap disc, since you need a disc that can be read by a Japanese PS2. If they don't have a specific SwapMagic disk for your PS2, try to find a version 1 Japanese gameshark.

While there are special discs you can buy, they're expensive.
I get Memorex DVD and CD spindles and I find the discs work wonderfully. I haven't had a problem yet. The discs themselves are really high quality too! They're usually a low price as well.
So, Blazingluke recommends: Memorex DVD-Rs

|would i just burn the ISO onto a DVD rom like as if i was buning ps1 games?|
|Posted by: BOZZ Feb 7 2006, 10:49 AM|
That usually works, and has worked fine for me so far...
|Posted by: darkpaladinzz Feb 7 2006, 10:54 AM|
|cuz yeah...ive been trying to burn SNK2..but ive had no luck..>_>..yet|
|Posted by: BOZZ Feb 7 2006, 02:05 PM|
Try using Alcohol 120%, it is very good for burning PS2 games...
|Posted by: blazingluke Feb 7 2006, 03:23 PM|
| I find that the best ways of burning are:
ISO Write Mode on "DVD Decrypter"
mounting the ISO with Daemon Tools and doing a 1-1 copy with Nero
|Posted by: BOZZ Feb 7 2006, 03:52 PM|
|Wait... You can use DVD Decrypter for burning PS2 games?|
|Posted by: blazingluke Feb 7 2006, 04:26 PM|
|Yep! It's the only way you can burn that bizzare demo for Black. Which means it can burn some CDs too....|

|anybody knows how to burn a cd image so i can play it on my ps2 with the swap magic cd version?|
|Posted by: blazingluke Feb 19 2006, 10:34 AM|
Its in the first post...
|Posted by: Rusty Feb 19 2006, 07:03 PM|
yeah, but those instructions dont seem to work for me. WHen I try to play the game, the screen just stays black.
I also read that you can *somehow* burn a cd image in a dvd and make it work. Is that possible and if so how?
|Posted by: blazingluke Feb 19 2006, 07:21 PM|
I've never heard of that before...anyways!
Download Deamon tools (google D-tools)
Mount the CD's ISO
Copy the disc with a disc-to-disc copy program
This works for everything I've tried it with...except for that weird Black demo...but that's another story.
|Posted by: Rusty Feb 20 2006, 06:51 AM|
hehe, dont worry, I got daemon tools, ill try it in a bit
it still doesnt work...im thinking about smashing something...is that a good idea?
|Posted by: blazingluke Feb 20 2006, 12:23 PM|
What game is it and where did you get the image?
|Posted by: krazykraka Feb 22 2006, 05:19 PM|
|just try to burn the iso(without mounting the image) with DVD decrypter.....this is the only program i use to burn things...and rarely have problems with it|
|Posted by: Rusty Feb 23 2006, 10:40 AM|
yeah the problem wasnt the process, it was the image, tried it with another game and it worked perfectly

|Well what if you have a boot disc and what if you burn a copy of that boot disc will it work on the ps2 the burn copy version of the boot disc.|
|Posted by: Rusty Feb 24 2006, 09:52 AM|
hmm i've been asking myself that same question, I'll try burning a copy of the boot disc when I get home from work
|Posted by: W.A.R Feb 24 2006, 10:21 AM|

|dreamcast was way different from these steps|
|Posted by: incredibleLE Feb 25 2006, 10:25 PM|
|oh, then is there a site or person that can tell me how to? i just found a site with some dreamcast games i always wanted and decided i should dust off the old thing and get some games for it.|
|Posted by: blazingluke Feb 26 2006, 08:12 AM|
| Try the afterdark forums. I hear they have everything.
and about burning swap discs...It can't be done without special equipment. They do something to the discs when they make them or something...my cousin thinks they're multi-session discs and that you need slysoft to copy them.
I really don't know, but that is what I've heard. Don't bother trying to download the ISOs off the net and don't bother trying to rip/copy them without expensive software/hardware.
|Posted by: krazykraka Feb 26 2006, 11:14 PM|
|just copy dreamcast games like you would for PS1 games.....Nero should be able to do it....Alcohol 120% as well.....they are just regular CDs nothing special|
|Posted by: Rusty Feb 27 2006, 06:54 AM|
yeah, I also think they're multisession. If you look on the recorder part of the cd/dvd you can see the session divisions, and there are a whole lot of 'em

|Im having a hard time buring Kaido battle 3 for ps2. Im using alcohol 120, and i have burned games before. Im i suposed to used DVD +R, because I used them before with a couple of games and they work but my ps2 wont read this one. what am I doing wrong?|
|Posted by: blazingluke Mar 3 2006, 12:41 PM|
To burn KB3, I used a Memorex DVD-R.
I mounted the image with Daemon Tools and copied it with Nero.
I'm also pretty sure you can burn it with DVD Decrypter.
The only problem I've had with my burned copy of KB3 is that is runs slowly on my old piece-of-crap PS2. It runs perfectly fine on my slimline.
|Posted by: D-Spec01 Mar 5 2006, 09:41 AM|
|OK, I've mounted the image with daemon tools, but wat do i copy to burn it with nero. Also if anyone has used DVD decryter to burn this game please tell me.|
|Posted by: Rusty Mar 5 2006, 03:34 PM|
since you have a slim ps2, do you know if your cd isos run good? cause I have the old ps2 and its getting a little bit crowded in th tv stand, and I was thinking about buying a ps2 slim, but I read somewhere that its picky with cd-r games
|Posted by: krazykraka Mar 5 2006, 09:32 PM|
| alright for DVD decryptor do this
this applies for ALL ISOs....
Insert a blank dvd into your drive
Open up dvd decryptor..i have 22.214.171.124
1) choose a mode (im assuming ur writing an image)
2) Choose the image(iso) that you want to burn
3) select the drive you are burning in
4) select the speed
5) Press that huge ass button on the bottom
and thats it...
i suggest you leave the other settings as default..(such as the advanced tab....cuz you know....its for advanced people)....
and then pop that shit into ur ps2 and play....
i have not encountered any problems with this program....
if you have problems then.....change media....find out if the file is messed up....check your ps2.......or kill yourself

|If you have a regular PS2, is it okay to just play burned Japanese/American games or do I need to do a Swap Disc?|
|Posted by: blazingluke Mar 14 2006, 01:46 PM|
| I store-bought North American PlayStation2 cannot play games from other regions of the world nor can it play games on anything other than official PS1/PS2 discs.
You need to use swapdisc or modchip.

| hey what would happen if I use dvd+ because I burn somegames and they work but other dont screen will usually go up like if it had bad reseption or it would act like it didnt have any controllers. no wonder Most wanted and some [PAL] games didnt work.
I had many downloaded games and threw them away NOOOOOOOOOO!
|Posted by: blazingluke Mar 28 2006, 12:09 PM|
| It might be how you burn them too. Different disc images have different personalities, lol.
PAL games don't work on your NTSC televisions if you don't convert them first.
I've got two universal televisions from when I lived in Europe so I can play both PAL and NTSC and the TV switches it automatically! I've got a VCR that does it too.

| Hey fellas was just wondering if i could get some help.
Ive got the first model PS2 (one of the ones from launch Aussie releace this is so Pal) and ive got swap magic 3.6 with swipe card. Ive downloaded Zone of the enders and all i got was a zip file with a .iso extension and a .mds file wich is 21 kb ive got no idea how to burn it becaus its not like a proper iso its just a zip with the files from the cd on it. Ive tried just burning these files with nero and swap magic didnt ditect it as a ps2 disk o.0
Any help / ideas?
|Posted by: blazingluke Mar 29 2006, 12:52 PM|
| Try putting the .mds file in D-Tools and see what happens. It might put the files into the correct places or something.
|Posted by: Mr.Ferret Mar 29 2006, 01:04 PM|
|ok that seems ok it did open the disk properly from it were to from here? try burning the .mds file in alcohole and test it out? any extra settings that i need considering it was the Launch Ps2?|

Can PS2 even read DVD to CD conversions?
I ask because all I have is a CD-RW drive with Sonic RecordNow and Sony SonicStage Simple Burner, and I have no friends with DVD+/-R drives with Alcohol 120% or Nero.
And I've been dying to play D1GP 2005!

|Posted by: blazingluke Jul 16 2006, 05:48 AM|
You can use pretty much any image burning program. Nero works most of the time, there have only been a couple of games that gave me troubles when using it.
DVD Decrypter is awesome at burning PS2 games.
D-Tools + Nero 1-1 copy works best for me though.

Disk in before burning, Disk in when burn process started.

I can't get any of them to work. When I tried to load up the files I click on the file that has all of the game files in it they are all Initial_D_Special_stage_NTSC_J.part05.rar and with similiar names. The thing is none of the burning software I downloaded recognizes any of the game files. I don't know if its because of the RAR format or what so any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if I'm doing something completely retarded here but this is the first time I've attempted burning a ps2 game.|
|Posted by: dmhc69 Dec 7 2007, 10:40 PM|
| burning RARs onto a disc does just that -- burns the archived files onto a disc.
by the sounds of things what you'll need to do is extract whatever is in these RAR files (which will probably be some sort of ISO). the file that is inside of the RAR archives that you have is the one that needs to be burned.
i hope that helps.

|Posted by: gns64 Dec 14 2017, 07:48 PM|
| If you have a fat PS2 all you need is a network adapter and a hard drive. No need for modchips or any of that crap.
I use PCSX2 to play some games for the convenience of having savestates + upscaled textures, but a lot of games are glitchy as all hell even with tweaks
|Posted by: schouppeke Dec 26 2017, 09:37 AM|
|The thing is i really like using my PS2 instead of using an emulator... It just feels weird lol|
|Posted by: Nomake Wan Dec 26 2017, 11:54 AM|
| That's unfortunate. Look into methods of running ISOs directly on a PS2 (such as via USB or via internal hard drive) if you're so fixated on it. If you have an old PS3 (such as a 20GB or 60GB) there are also ways to play PS2 games via USB or network connection.
An emulator is still the superior way to play, however, as nowadays PCSX2 is capable of playing games even better than the original hardware.
|Posted by: kyonpalm Dec 27 2017, 03:09 PM|
Generally, but not necessarily. There are some games that still shit bricks in certain areas unless you're using software rendering (Siren, Silent Hill Origins, Gran Turismo 3, Silent Hill 2, etc.) at which point you may as well be playing on a real PS2. Then there's the whole nostalgia thing but that's a personal choice.
