    For your information, a PS2 game is NOT a 'rom'.

    Search 'dump ps2 game'.

    I cannot help you further.

    PS2 DVDs and CDs just need to be backed up like any other ordanary DVD/CD media. You don't need any special app to do it tbh. [​IMG]

    PS2 iso dumping is easy. You really just need a dvd drive on your computer and isobuster installed. Have the disc in the drive and open up isobuster and right click on the cd and say its an image and dump it as an iso. You might get better google results by searching ps2 isobuster dumping or something.

    O.O Are you serious? PS2 games have no encryption??? (or CSS?) That smarts!

    Oh, and sorry, I know that it's not a ROM, but i use ROM to refer to any video game that has been taken from the original media. Its wrong, and my stupidity doesn't correct me.

    Thanks alot! *off to buy more DVD-Rs*

    EDIT: oh wait.. but i would need to chip it or use a bootloader, right? (Note: I don't know the definite definition of bootloader)

    Yea,You will need a modchip or swapmagic/hdloader.

    I use a PSX game/Memory card HDloader exploit.

    EDIT:To use the Memory card exploit you need swap magic/fliptop or a chip to install it on the MC.
