    AFAIK it won't work, same goes for the other question you asked 2 minutes before this one in a different thread. [​IMG]

    They have to be burnt to a CD and at a lower speed as possible preferably but I get away with it at 16x.

    I usually burn them on a CD. Most of them are small enough to fit in a CD, so I don't wanna waste DVD's. However, you do know that you will need some form of playing the PS1 backups, right? And Swap Magic won't do it either...

    I always just use a Playstation emulator on my PC. As far as I can tell, the emulators are pretty much perfect already and you don't need a super fast computer to run them. And since the emulator can run iso images, you can potentially put a few PS1 games on a dvd and load them that way. I prefer to keep them on my hard drive though, so they load as fast as possible. Unlimited memory card space and save states are a nice bonus too.

    I know that may not be the desired solution to this particular issue, but the emulator still seems way simpler than trying all the various swap methods or exploits to get a PS1 backup working on a PS2.

    And just in case, I am talking about PS1 emulators like ePSXe, not PS2 emulators, which do require a super computer to run at halfway decent speeds.

    The PS2 uses PS1 hardware. So if a PS1 won't read a dvd, neither will the PS2.

    False. It's not like the PS2 uses the PS1's CD-ROM Reader to read the discs. Besides not all PS2's use PS1 hardware.

    PS2 will only read PSone off CD because it doesn't emulate it, the hardware won't be able to understand what to do with PSone data on a DVD-R. It's not like a wii where the data was already stored on a DVD to begin with so you can use whatever size of disc u want.

    i dont think PS2 emulates the PS1.
    i think it has the proper hardware for it, since there is no slowdown in anygame and has the bios, something like GBA in DS, where there is no emulation there.

    The Small PS2 does emulate it through software.

    You can't backup PS1 game onto a DVD and play off a DVD. Not possible, be it one game or 20 games.

    Why is that? Is it restriction from the BIOS?

    The restriction is BIOS + security checks + media. Every type of media has an indicator on it. ALL PS1 GAMES WERE ON CDs. So, the BIOS will check to see if the media matches first then it'll read an indicator as to whether the game is a PS1 or PS2 CD game, then it will probably switch the read type (PS2 to PS1) then go through a security check.

    Since my PS2 is modded, is it possible that it will postpone the security check?

    No! Did you read everything I said? There's more than just security checks, there's a media check, something you can't get around. You know what, go ahead and burn those PS1 games onto a DVD. I don't know why you keep asking as if it's possible after we've told you can't do it. Try out and waste a DVD.

    That's wrong. The Slim PS2 does not have PS1 Hard ware, unlike the Fat PS2 so it has limited PS1 BC.

    This is true but so is the complete opposite. There have been releases of 6 PSX games on one CD with a custom menu and there are rip packs for PS2 games to be burnt onto CD. I believe they got rid of DVD-ROM checks on a couple of the rip packs so I'd imagine the PSX will check media type like Jiggah stated. Just tossing in something that is totally OT.
