Question newbie very confused:(

sponsored links

Hello Sorry to bother everyone im not sure if this is the right forum to post in but im new and im not really sure where to start off at. Alright well anyways I have PS2 and i had the game True Crime and it got steped on in my room and broke. I was wondering if theres any place i can go to get the back up file for it. Im not sure what u would call it but like the game. Also i have no idea how any of the backing up of the disks work. Is there any good programs to use to back up the games? Right now i have something called Frontend or something and im not really sure how it all works out.. Also i have a normal CD burner not a DVD burner. Do you need a DVD burner to back up your games? Or can you use a normal burner? This is how i think it might work but im not sure... I have nero and if you burning a CD of any kind it asked if u want to make an image or if u want to burn it do you make an image of it on nero and then use a diffrent program to put it on another disk? Also i need a boot disk im not sure where to get one of them either. Once again im very sorry if this is the wrong forum i have looked around the site and everything i see i dont understand might as well have been written in japan. So if someone can please help me out im very intrested in this idea seeing how it could save me from wasting another 50 bucks. So if someone can help me out with this that would be great. Thanks again hope to hear from u.

We actually have a PS2 forum here specifically for PS2 releated topics so I'll move this there now.

Well first and foremost Lil Nick, do you have a modchip/swap-method? If not then you won't be able to play backups no matter what you do. You can backup games with a CD Burner but you will have to rip out everything but the actual game itself (no movies, languages, ect.) on all DVD-ROM based games (which most of the newer ones are). Also the other problem with that is that rips are known to pre-maturely kill your PS2 laser. DVD Burners are cheap enough now that you really should consider in investing in one $150 or less will get you a very nice burner.

It seems it would be cheaper to just buy another disk used from or BBV.
