sponsored links

 
Sorry about the double post but I though some might find it useful


For those that need help with a mac
You need to use Toast Titanium 5.01 or 5.02
Open toast

If you just have a CD-RW and want to save it to your drive first

1. Select image copy (third option from the left at the top of the toast window)
2. insert CD game
3. Select "Save as image " under the file menu
4. Double Click on the image then Record image

(note you must have enough space on your hard drive to do this)

or

If you just have a CD-RW and want to just burn it

1. Select image copy
2. insert CD game
3. Click on record
it will ask you to place in a blank CD-R When ready

(note you must have enough space on your hard drive to do this)

If you have a CD-RW and CD-Rom drive and want to copy on the fly

1. Select image copy
2. Drag CD to window
3. Click on record

You can do the knife trick but I would recommend a chip is easier.
I have some neo 2.2's and neo keys and macrovision remover chips if you are interested

Remeber, your PS2 is your friend please dont stab it with a knife!

Hi m8, cheers for the info, do u use the superdrive of an external dvd-r.

I'm looking to buy an external firewire dvd-r drive and would like to know if it matters which one i buy, or is it best to get one that uses the pioneer A03 drive.

Any suggestions please.

Also does a straight copy with toast work fine on all ps2 dvd games?

I bought an Pioneer A03 and put it in my g4 400Mhz sawtooth
All the external drives use the Panasonic LDF-311 or the Pioneer A03.
(Sorry I had pioneer twice I made the correction 2/13/02)


I think the Revo or an of them that you buy already put together are ok
but if you use your own case I would get a case with the oxford 911 bridge though.

Yes you can just use toast to copy any game DVD or CD only the ea sports games need to be patched when using certain chips that is why cd-copy and ppf-o-matic are good programs to have
(I have never tried to patch an image created by toast though)

Astatre is also good for letting you know that your cd is too bady damaged or scratched to be copied before you waste a CD buy letting you make an image first.
