Can you duplicate disks?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Let me just state now I would NOT do this as I buy games as I respect the makers of these games.

But something just popped into my head, could you duplicate disks with a DVD Duplicator, or is there some special file on the disk that prevents this?

Its been bugging me for a while, I just had to ask!

Are you talking PS2 or PS1? PS1 discs you can backup really easy, they're a normal CD. PS2... dunno.

Their many ways to get it done. The most well known is to use an older 1x CD writer.

There is copy perfection on the disk, and the standard ways such as making an ISO don't work for it.

Otherwise, you can't make a perfect copy to play without modding the system.

It does, doing a "regular" direct copy will fail because of the copy protection. Making an image of the disk then burning the image works.

If you mean duplicating and working to play, only on the ps1; ps2 if you have a modchip they'll work, and you can't at all on the ps3.

PSX and PS2 games can easily be backed up onto your hard drive. Use either Nero or Magic ISO.

Yeah, PS1 and PS2 games are pretty easy. PS3, you can't, you'd need a blu-ray burner anyway, as PS3 games are blu-ray discs not DVD's.
