Default PS2 DVD burning ISO

sponsored links

Hi, I just got a dvd-burner, so I tried burning something on the dvd+rw disk it came with, and had no luck...reason being, it actually burnt the ISO as a file (nero).

Is it even possible to burn ps2 games onto dvd+rws? I'm trying to burn a FFX-2 ISO, can you suggest a good program? Nero doesn't like me.


o.0 didn't realise this was wrong forum, still thought I was in PS2 game backup..anyway, move it please? sorry about that.

You need to select burn image in Nero, not burn data CD. You haven't said what version of Nero you have, so I can't tell you exactly where it is but it's under either the File or Recorder menu.

Yes you can burn a game to DVD+RW but I don't know what luck you'll have getting the PS2 to read it.

Thanks, using nero 6+, I tried burning it again, properly this time, all the files copied great, but my ps2 isn't reading it.
Also tried burning a bin/cue of SSX3, dvdrip, the cd copied fine, but again, my ps2 is choking on it...
It's a version 1 ps2, with some sort of messiah chip, sometimes games don't boot so I have to restart my ps2, but other than that it's fine. I heard I could only use a certain color disk on it, but I'm using silvers here, and they should work fine.

-On closer inspection, the disk wasn't perfectly silver..more of a blue tint, I dunno if that makes a difference, but whatever, it's definitely to do with the ps2, it reads purple/silver ps2 dvds perfectly, and also silver ps1 games. I'm about to try a silver infiniti disk, if that doesn't work, I'm doing something wrong.-

Ok, the infiniti one works, Kind of.
The game seems to be running fine, only problem is, the spinning disk sounds very scratchy and this normal?!

Your problem is probably your media. RW formats (both - and +) aren't known to be the most compatible with PS2s. Also DVD-R is the format that is most compatible with all versions of PS2s and in particular: Ritek, Fujifilm, Taiyo Yuden and Apple brands all work great.

Okay, well I don't currently have any dvd-r, but I've been looking around recently, a bit unsure of which would work, but you've listed Ritek, and I've seen them going cheap. I'll get a spindle of those and see how it goes, thanks a lot
