Dont get me wrong but what is the point with making a second boot disk ?

Do I understand this correctly :-

You load a PS2 demo disk (which has playable games).

The then swap this disk for a "MODIFIED" version of the above disk with the important sles/system files etc

You then swap this disk for your backup disk ?!

Now dont get me wrong but this seems to be an very long way around the block to boot ps2 backups

What is the hardship with just going to your local games shop (or online) and buying AR/GS/X and just loading that before swaping for your backup game ?

Default Re: wierd Ps2 boot disc ????

[i]Originally posted by Dannk [/i]
[B]I've copied 40 ps2 gamez and they all work but my boot
disc i created was a modified demo disc that comes with the machine, you boot demo disc then swap for newly build one and it work, my question is i compiled it and burt it on this pc but now it only reads on my ps2 and not my DVDrom or cdrw on my computer (it use to though).
I looked on the bottom of the demo boot disc and it has no scratches and the disc where the data is has changed to the light blue color that brought ps2 games have. anyone answer this one? [/B]
it's your dvdrom drive. Mine did the same thing...e.g. it slowly stopped reading dvd's and now it stopped reading everything all together. It's similiar to the ps2 laser which for some stops reading dvd's then later it stops reading cd and cdr's

I don't really get this thread.A bootdisc is a disc that once you put in in your comsole it will make your burned games work.Just like the utopia bootdisc did on the dreamcast.But a bootdisc is not something that requires something else to be booted itself.This doesn't make sense.People have beed downloading action replays and gamesharks off the net for since they came out.I myself have one,but what use is it if it doesn't load by itself.I now have a gameshark with dongle and that makes the downloaded gameshark useless.So i seriously don't get this thread.

I agree with spacemonkey15 here, I just don't get this. Why would you rebuild it with action replay? What is the point? Can't you boot backups straight from the demo disk?
