    Play Station 2 DVD Back-up


    My sons requested me to make a quick back-up of their PS2 dvd. I tried dvdbackup apparently doesn't work.

    May I please ask for some help on what tools I can use to backup such dvds?

    I have an old Mint 7, Ubunut 9.04, and Scientific Linux 6, FWIW.

    Thanks in advance for any word.

    Thank you very much Lazydog for your suggestion. Didn't work for me though but thanks for the suggestion just the same.

    Well both gadgets are same but if you just take PS2 for gaming then it is most suitable gadget for games and is much reliable then other consoles.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    I think that these game DVD's have some low-level copy protection such as data on slightly out-of-spec tracks that won't copy, even using bit-image backup tools such as dd. IE, even if it does copy the available data, writing back to a blank disc will not provide a working copy. This is one reason why I boycott these game consoles - their DRM is not user/customer-friendly...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
