man only get the games on dvdr if your have to, like ffx, mgs2....only get the cdr version if nothing or little has been ripped out of them. you get everything with the dvd games (all movies, music etc), with some cdr games they rip this out to make it fit.

The CDr is a copy of a CDrom based game and the DVDrip is a rip copy of the DVD based game. With the rip you will be missing things like sound, FMV and the such like was said above and the CDrom is a copy of the whole CDrom game. CDr's are usually around 650mb but can go as high as 700mb... But the DVD game can be several gigs.... so you see alot can be missing in a rip. I hope this helps you out. If you want the DVD game backup in all it's glory get a DVDr backup....... cya

some games will never be ripped eg: MGS2, FFX , MAx Payne etc - so u need to buy DVDr....(se below)

Most games are rippable and playable though - u don't miss what's been ripped too much - and some have nothing ripped at all
