Lightbulb RecordNow MAX PS2 DVD-R Burning Tutorial

sponsored links

Thought this would be a nice addition to the forum.

It's a Stomp RecordNow MAX! Burning tutorial for packing up PS2 DVD games to DVD-R done by my friend [B]psx_paul[/B] at the CDRBase forums.

A DEMO of Stomp RecordNow MAX! can be downloaded here:- ***********

[b]Place an image of the DVD on your hard disk[/b]

Insert your PS2 DVD into your DVD-ROM drive. Load up RecordNow Max application.


Select your DVD-ROM drive from the available drive icons in the top left panel.
[b]101[/b] - Now either right-click the drive, select “Drive>Disc Explorer and Drive Properties” or press “F4” on your keyboard. This will bring up the Disc Explorer and Drive Properties screen.


(Note – tick the “Auto Refresh” box if you inserted you game after the application was loaded up, or if the game does not show in the “Disc Sessions and Tracks” area).
[b]102[/b] – Click on the “Global-Image” button.
[b]103[/b] – Enter the path/name of the file that will be the end image. Click the “…” box to browse to your chosen path. The image should end with a .gi extension.
[b]104[/b] – Select “Read Speed”, I always choose Min for speed.
[b]105[/b] – Click on the “Build” button.


The image will now be copied to your chosen area.
[b]106[/b] – The bottom of the window shows the overall and current Read Speed, along with percentage complete bar.


[b]107[/b] – When the image has been fully copied to your chosen area you will see a message confirming that the operation has been completed successfully.

[b]Burn the image from hard disk back to a DVD-R[/b]

Before burning back to DVD-R, check the following settings:
* “Auto Insert Notification” is OFF
* “Autorun Shield” is ON (Tools>Options>General tab)
The bar along the bottom of the RecordNow Max application displays this information.


[b]201[/b] – Click on the “Image” button
[b]202[/b] – Select your DVD Recorder (eg. Pioneer A04/104)
[b]203[/b] – Select the number of “Copies”, the Burn Speed (1x or 2x depending on media), Select “Record and Verify” from the next drop-down box along, and finally “Verify every round”.
[b]204[/b] – Either locate the .gi image file from the drop-down box, or click on “Add file” then browse to your .gi image file.
[b]205[/b] – When you are happy with the settings, click on the red “Record” button.


[b]206[/b] – A confirmation screen will be displayed, either click on the “Record” button or leave for 5 seconds, the burn will then start.


[b]207[/b] – The progress bar displays remaining time and percentage completed. As you have selected “Record and Verify” in the settings above, the image will be recorded, then checked (Verify) against the original image.
The size of the original game along with the burn speed determines how long each phase will take. In the example above using World Championship Snooker 2002 burning at 1x, it took around 17 minutes to complete each phase (35 minutes in total). Larger TOC games such as Metal Gear Solid 2 take a much longer time to complete (between 45 and 60 minutes per phase).

Sit back and relax for a while, perhaps consuming a cold beverage or two.


[b]208[/b] – Congratulations, the overall burn process has been completed successfully.

The original article can be also viewed in the Console Forum here:- [B]***********
Once again, my thanks to [B]psx_paul[/B] for his full permission to reproduce the guide here.
