Hi!

I have several original copies of fifa soccer 04 05 06 that stopped working. I have cleaned the ps2 several times (cleaning the good ole lens with a qtip and some rubbing alcohol) and always get my sons games to work. i have also had success in reviving some his favorites with the even more popular toothpaste trick. :thumbsup:

But my fifa soccer games do not work anymore!!! :flowers:

I would love to get more original fifa soccer games, but I would like to use back ups instead and then safe keep the originals.

Some of you may feel that this would be a copyright infringement, but I am trying to stop having to waste more money on games I already own.

If you know how to do this, please let me know.

I am also very interest in any criticism you may have. Please write any negative criticism on a piece of paper and put it in my inbox. My inbox is located near your desk on the floor. Most likely it looks like a little bucket with a plastic bag in it and may have some trash in it already. Just put it in there and I will read it later.

Thanks,
Scherrypoppa

The DMCA declares that breaking copy protection is illegal, regardless of whether or not there is a copy violation. This is illegal and should be locked.

Making backup copies of your games is perfectly legal. Unfortunately the backup copy will not work without a modchip and this is where BleepingComputers rules come into play.

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. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

Don't look for this to be in your inbox to read later, because it's not criticism. It is just an enforcement of our long established rules for this forum.
