    What hack are you using?

    For ps2 id look at opl/hd loading and freemc first but i dont think that supports ps1, been a while though.

    For ps2, you should use DVD-r's. The DVD+r and DVD-rw cause errors. I would use verbatim brand. As for psx, I'm sure you can use any cd-r.

    I used to burn at 4x, but I don't think many drives now suppport that. I've never used esr, so I'm not sure what compatibility it has. You could have a bad rip, though. I know there are many types of verbatims, but I used ones that had no labels.

    I would use something like these. That was years ago. I never used a program to load the backups, my ps2 has a modchip and I used that until hdloader came out. Now, I use openps2loader now to load my ps2 backups from my hdd and I'm trying to figure out popstarter for loading psone games.

    oh wow thanks for the help :) and popstarter is kinda confusing for loading ps1 games i never figured out, so hopefully i'll get a psone with a port in the back so that way i can flash the cheat carts and play backups from there.

    Lol, yes. I've watched that same video many times. He talks pretty fast, but I had trouble getting all the files. I'll have to revisit this situation next weekend.
