Unhappy Imac Ps2

sponsored links

 
Hi, just had a couple of quick questions for ya. I have a red imac. 9g hardrive, 1g memory. Iomega zip cd 650, and toast 5.1. I have burned psx backups easily by just using disk copy on toast and they work fine. but when I try to back up a back up PS2 game it wont work. I'm not trying to burn a real game, I'm just trying to burn a backup and I assume it would be easier but they never play. the backup I'm trying to burn plays perfects but the backup of the backup never plays. I'm using verbatim, tdk, maxell, I've tried all but all I get are coasters. i just don't get it. I've even used asarte and saved an image file and tried to burn that but it still didn't work. I assumed that since the backup that I wanna burn works perfectly then my burned cd would work as well. Am I doing something wrong? please help. Thanks.

Yeah, I'm using an iomega zip cd 650 USB burner. That's the only thing I think can be wrong.

Yes i thought so

That is the same burner i had with my imac. It was the same, it was ok with psx 1 backups but not with psx2. I think it is down to a weak burn on the usb iomega. Have u got ur ps2 chipped. I did and it would not work using the chip but would boot ok using the knife method. Is it the same for u.

Hi
I have the same problem and still don't know haw to resolve it!
I have an imac and a yamaha firewire CD-RW!
I can burn ps1 games w/out problem, but know, w/ ps2 games, it doesn't work!
I also try to burn theme on the internal DVD-R from the new imac, but same result!
I use toast 5 and make cd copy, and the new backup doesn't boot on my ps2, somebody use the same writer as me?
