Ok before you start thinking ANYTHING as you usually do,NOTE THAT I DO HAVE THE ORIGINAL PLAYSTATION 2 GAME DVD DISCS!!!

Ok now to the subject.
I have the same games on my computer.One of them has two files.The ".iso" and the ".mds" file.What do I need to do to make this work on the real Playstation 2 console?
Do I have to burn the ".mds" file with the Power ISO?
I configured the Power ISO to be the default program for opening these type of files,so when I double click the ".mds" file,the Power ISO opens it and shows all the ps2 game files inside.Same for the ".iso" file...
Do I just have to click the "Burn" button at the top and burn this to my DVD disc?
Will that work???
I tryed the same thing before and it didn't work for my original playstation 1 game.
This is however the playstation 2 game.Can I burn the ".mds" with the Power ISO to a DVD disc and make this game to work under the real playstation 2 console???
I know that the ".mds" file points to that ".iso" file,but I read that I should burn the ".mds" file and not the ".iso" file.My Playstation 2 console is chipped by the way because I always make the copy of my original DVD discs so in the case if it get damaged,I do not need to buy again the original disc which I already have.
My question is the same for ".mds" and ".mdf" files...

Any help would be appreciated!


AGAIN I AM SAYING.I DO HAVE THE ORIGINAL DVD DISCS FOR THESE PLAYSTATION 2 GAMES!!!

MDF aswell as any other format out there are program specific formats created by the developers of those burning apps.. iso is just the standard format supported by most if not all burning apps out there. to get the game working just burn the da*n game(not with fire :p) and put the da*n disc on your PS2 and you will see its going to run :p

some people here like your attitude and you´re a nice guy but somehow you keep creating threads that opens a spam fest for most of the users here. and you still wonder why people keep posting negative things about you or closing your threads????

don´t get me wrong as am one of the few here that like your attitude but.... why do you keep creating pointless threads???? everytime i see the Exclamation symbol on a thread i know its yours even without reading it :p

MDF come with MDS.... not with ISO files...

anyhow... ISO generally works fine on PS2 disks.. as long as the PS2 is chipped.

Not too low as not all discs support burning at ultra low speed. Sounds weird... but eh... :p

Generally, 2.4x or 4x are the sweet spots. And the medium you use might be important, too. But most important of all, as Squall mentioned is a chipped PS2. If you have an original PS2 then you can just forget about this and try PCSX2 instead.

Until your PS2 starts dying, and playing off burned games becomes a load frenzy, or stops entirely.

The only thing that kills the PS2 laser to my experiences now with the PS2 is to use that console to watch DVD movies.. the PS3 has actually the same problem when used to watch Blu-Ray movies or DVDs in general.

Yea I know,but my friend once downloaded the game that had the MDS and ISO file in it and I was like WTF xD

Anyway just few days ago I made an ISO file of my playstation 1 game and I burned it to the CD-ROM disk using the Power ISO.I used the 8x speed.I should put slower I know.Anyway,when I put the CD-ROM disk in my playstation 1 console,the playstation 1 logo was shown fine and after it gone,the game should have started,but instead all I got was just the black screen.

THEN I created the ".ccd" image of the SAME game and burned it to my CD-ROM disk with the CloneCD again on 8x speed and the game worked perfectly!

My question is...WHY WHEN I AM BURNING THE ISO OR MDS WITH POWER ISO THE GAME WON'T WORK???IS IT BECAUSE I USED 8x speed???:rolleyes:

Oh one more question.
If I have the MDS file and MDF file of my playstation 2 game,will the game work on my real playstation 2 console if I burn the MDS file with PowerISO using the low speed such as 2x or 4x???:rolleyes:

I am asking all this because I don't want to use my orignal disks for playing the games I have.I always make the copies of the original disks and ALWAYS use copies in the case if something bad happens.:D
I know I can simply copy my original disk in Nero,NTI or some other software,but I would like to learn to work with these file types such as ISO,MDS,MDF,CCD,BIN,CUE and so on...But mostly the ISO,MDS and MDF.I never had any problems with the CCD using the CloneCD software.:)

Funny thing is that my laser has no problem reading real games - only the burned ones have been having trouble (and I've never tried movies).

Yeah. I imagine the laser is getting a little tired. Not tired enough that original games aren't being read, but enough so that copied games are. The same DVDs that worked when I first got the PS2, no longer work as well.

Bah lucky you.:D

why use poweriso, i use imgburn and got 100% perfect results as long as the iso isnt corrupted, created properly and in my case if the worked with swap magic
Well I read that the PowerISO and Alcohol 120% are good softwares for these things.
What's wrong with the PowerISO anyway??

On the following picture I am showing the opened ISO file of the Playstation 2 game.Please take a look at the following picture and tell me if that's the right way I should burn the Playstation 2 game so that it can work on my real Playstation 2 console...

I do not like being mean or anything.. but if this topic is supposed to be an exclusion - please censor or remove the screenshot of your ps2-image.

On another note, power iso might not be optimal for ps2-burning (not that is does a worse job, but it contains features that are more advanced for someone with less experience. try alkohol 120% or something in that fashion)

Yes. I changed the label CD/DVD of some games and it worked. and Yes that's the way to burn it, and it should work if your ps2 modded. Btw, RE Dead Aim is the worst RE Game after Outbreak.
If I try to burn the MDS file(which points to my MDF file) or the MDF file on the same way as I do with this ISO file,will that work too??
Because I can open the MDF file with Power ISO on the same way I do with the ISO file with no problems at all.So will that work???
Take a look at the following picture:

I tryed Alcohol 120% for one of my Playstation 1 games and it didn't work.
It's just that I hate playing games from my original CD and DVD-ROM disks.They were pretty expensive after all...
