Default Help Making PSX Backups

sponsored links

 
OK, I'm at a loss as to what to do next. I have followed the
instructions for coping PSX games on a Mac and I'm still having no luck. This is
what I'm doing:

I place the game CD in my drive and two icons appear on the desktop.
One seems to be the game and the 2ed the music for the game. I then open
Astarte, highlight the contents of both folders from the PSX disk and
convert them. I then close Astarte and open Toast. I have Adaptec Toast
4.1.2. I drag the converted files onto the Toast window and make the CD
at the slowest speed. Once this is done I try out the game and it does not
work.

I really don't know what to do next. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

1. Tried to copy Army Men World War

2. I really don't know what chip I have. It was installed for me about 2 years ago. It has played every backup I've tried except Spyro Year of the Dragon.

3. I'm using a spool of disks I bought at Best Buy a while back that is deep blue on the recordable side. Not sure what brand.

I'm guessing u have a stealth 3 chip cuz of not being able to play a copy of spyro 3. That game has a mod chip dection protection in it. You would have to up grade to a stealth 4 chip - if possible- to get around that.
Any way - your problem could be w/ your cd-r media. My 750x PSX does not like the really blue bottom ones. It may play one out of 20! but some other peeps PSX will play them w/ no problems. Mine likes the lt. blue or the gold bottom ones. I would try different cd-rs first.

If your still having problems & think it may be the way your burning the disc - do u have anyone elses psx that u could try the disc in? If not -& if u want to - send me one of your "bad" copies & I will try it in one of my PSX. ( I have access to about 6 differnt consoles)
