Hey,

How do I backup PS2 Discs?

My brother has seriously scratched a few of his games and I want to know how to Backup them so if it happens again then I can burn a new copy without having to pay for new ones.

Thanks

Not sure how the mods will see this kind of talk on here just warning you mate :thumbsup: ), but your first port of call is google, just google the term: backup ps2 games'.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Ok I am going with what Firecracker has said but to be honest, backing-up a Ps2 game is the same as backing-up a DVD with data on it. Also, on top of that, you need a Modification Chip to play back-up games or games that are copied. (ModChips are illegal aswell so best to just make sure you games are put in a case so they are not scratched. :thumbsup:

If I had to guess, I'd guess that Mods would frown upon discussion of this topic possibly due to the following reason:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user.


The best way to avoid having to replace games is to take care of them from the start! :thumbsup:

For discs that are scratched, a disc repairer that "buffs" the readable part of the disc works wonders, and I've seen it save many games. Don't forget to maintain your console by cleaning the laser eye from time to time too.
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

I have heard of something like this aswell. They can also do this in some video game shops and in Video Rental shops (Not everyone though)
