Since the release of the PlayStation 3, its predecessor slowly has been fading into the realm of obsolescence. Because no new games are being released for the PS2 and used copies are getting more and more scarce, it has fallen to the Internet to provide gamers with backup copies of their favorite games. However, once a game has been downloaded, the intrepid gamer finds himself faced with another task; that of getting the game file---typically downloaded as an ISO or BIN/CUE file---onto a physical disc.
Things You'll Need
- Blank DVD or CD
- CD/DVD burning software
- Computer with DVD-R/RW drive
Insert the blank disc into the computer's DVD-R/RW drive; what type of media you will use is dependent on the size of the game. If the game file's size is over 700MB, use a DVD. Then open up your preferred DVD burning program.
Select the "Burn Image File to Disc" option when asked what you wish to do in the DVD burning program. This option will be labeled slightly differently depending on what software you are using.
Click the "Browse for File" button in the "Source" section and locate the PS2 game file you downloaded from the Internet. Double-click the game file to select it as the file you wish to burn to a CD/DVD.
Click the "Burn" button once you have selected the game file. Your CD/DVD burning program now will make a new PS2 game disc by writing the game file to the blank CD/DVD.
Tips & Warnings
- PS2s cannot natively play copied games. If you wish to play a copied game, you either will need a PlayStation 2 emulator on your computer or a PS2 with a modchip installed. You also can use the Swap method to get your game to play on an unmodded PS2.
