Copy PS2 DVD Games – How to Backup Your Playstation GamesOn May 8, 2023 by Shazaib Khatri75
First let me say that copying PS2 games you do not own is illegal and is considered piracy. However, if you have a legit copy of a Playstation 2 game, then it would be wise to make a backup copy since DVD discs have a limited time.
Generally, if you play a PS2 game consistently every day for a few hours, the lifespan can only last for a year at most. That’s not to mention the scratches on the Playstation 2 disc if you accidentally dropped it or your Playstation 2 set has faulty mechanical problems.
Here’s in short basically how you can copy PS2 DVD games.
First thing you need is a DVD/CD burner. A normal DVD drive (DVD-ROM) will read CD/DVDs but it will not write to a CD/DVD. One way to tell is to look at the description on your DVD reader. If it says DVD-ROM only, then you only have a reader and can’t burn DVD. If it says anything like DVD+R or ps2 roms DVD-R or DVD-RAM, then your reader can burn Dvds.
The second thing to need is a DVD decryptor, it is a software that allows you to decode the data in ps2 DVD so that the DVD/CD burner could read it so that it could be copied in your blank disc or into your computer.
The easiest way to open the software is as follows. The first step would be to open dvd decryptor then go to MODE>ISO>READ and then it will copy the game and make an iso file on your pc hdd.
Second step would be when that finishes go to MODE>ISO>WRITE and then select the iso file that decryptor just made. It will burn the file to the dvd and presto you are done. I recommend you set the write speed to 1X to prevent write DVD problems.
