Now Easily Backup Ps1/PS2 Games

.com, there are some methods from which you can easily backup your xbox or ps1/ps2 games and inorder to backup you would require a modchip, so follow the instructuion as iI have also included a tutorial on boot methods. Follow any one of these instructions to fit your needs.

Downloads / Software you need

  • Alcohol 120%
  • Nero
  • Prassi

You can tell what format the PS2 title is by looking at the written side of the disc, DVD’s are Silver and CD’s are Purple. The DVD backup methods here consist of reading the image to the hard drive then burning it to the media for an easier  backup, this depends on your hardware and its setup. I say that because the proper setup would be to have the Reader and Writer on separate IDE cables. This allows no cross information when doing Disc to Disc/On the fly copying. But, since most people would not know how to check or fix this, I suggest reading the image to your Hardrive

and then burning from there. A little useful trick, If the DVD backup “image” is small enough in size you can fit it onto a CD-R (80 minute or larger if need be) instead of using a more expensive DVD-R. I have done this succesfully using Prassi and the first tutorial for it below. In addition a DVD Movie backup will play on a PS2/Xbox without a chip. As I get more info I will update.

PS1/PS2 CD backup tutorial

PS2 DVD backup tutorials (Using Prassi Primo )

  • After the image is extracted go to next step
  • Choose the 3rd disc icon from the left *or* click file, new job, Global/Other Image
  • Then just burn the .gi (global image) of the game

This next way has one less step which saves some time because once you press record it does everything by itself (if you have a DVD reader and DVD Writer)

This next way is without the Wizard

  • Start Nero, and select “File” then “New…”
  • On upper left side of the window from the drop down menu select “DVD”
  • Select “DVD Copy” Icon
  • Select “Copy options” tab
  • Check OFF “copy on the fly”

XBOX backup tutorials

Xbox original games are burned from the outside in. The only way to backup a title is to have a modchip like X-exuter (best), Enigma, or Xodus/Matrix. You also have to flash the bios and have a CD program inserted or installed into the X-Box named EVO-X (this allows you to assign the X-Box an IP address). The game has to be stored on the X-Box’s HD, this allows you to file transfer the title to your PC using an ftp program like FlaxhFXP (best) or similar. From there you use a burning application to make the backup. Some applications allows you to “drag & drop” right from the Xbox or you can build an ISO of the image then burn to CD-R/W or DVD-R/W backup. (I will update this to show steps as soon as I have a minute)
