There is a good chance that sony will not let you do that at the hardware level. I'll bet the drive itself can tell and won't let you do it. I could be wrong though.

Nah. You can copy any software in existence. People do it all the time. I know you can backup PS3 games under windows. Not sure, but I think the disc's are burnt from the outside in instead of the center towards the outside of the disk, which might be the reason you can't read it.

I don't play console so I can't help you much other than saying it is possible. Under Linux... Not sure.

Edit - Actually, I think the PS3 is patched at a hardware level to detect game backups. Dreamcast, Wii and others are easier to copy...

I think you'll be fighting an uphill battle. I stick with PC games. The graphics will always be better and you can ALWAYS back your games up.

Hi,

You should be able to 'dd' the disc. Just raw data.

You should look at a great LQ post for 'dd'; 'Learn The DD Command Revised'.

This link and others are available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

As Bluray is DRM'd up the ***, it may be difficult and futile, unless of course you know how to crack DRM.

Well, software is the key. Blue Ray/hd-dvd isn't a problem on windows....

I do all my video editing and game playing under Windows. For ease of use and maximum options, you can't beat windows in that area. And you'll probably NEVER beat it. I'm afraid windows will always have it's uses.

You may get a better response if you send this to Linux-General or Linux-Software... But anyway aside from that. In the past, both the PS1 and PS2 were capable of detecting burnt media; they required the use of installing a "mod chip" to circumvent these protections AS WELL as having a raw image that was backed up a special way. If the copy production methods violate iso standards, 'dd' will NOT work. 'dd' only gives you a corrupted or partial image on the most extreme copy protection methods. You would have to use a more sophisticated back up method.

There is a raw back up mode for cdrdao that worked for PS2 disks, but I don't know if it supports blueray yet or not and with the PS2 you still needed a mod chip. Additionally, in the most extreme copy protection methods there is a way to half burn a few blocks of data AND detect that. This can not be duplicated to a new disk under linux.

Aside from all that, the PS3 uses a hyper-visor to control what processors are used for what. Even if you booted into linux on the PS3, you would only get half the story.

@jessica6712... not that this is the place for it. But the PS3 saves can be backed up to USB and transfered to other systems or between system restores. Provided the game supports this. Half online games with local storage only will not support this. Need For Speed Carbon for example, will refuse to copy from the PS3. There are no special hacks to copy a normal save file. Just brows to the games, then the saves, then select it, and select copy

To copy PS3 games with the normal CD/DVD burning software like Nero or Roxio is highly impossible. The reason is the game discs are digitally signed and they have copyright protection which your usual DVD burning software cannot bypass and your attempts to copy the PS3 games prove in vain.

I think that this thread is in danger of attracting the wrong sort of person. If a manufacturer does not want you to copy their media, then LQ cannot help you to circumvent this. For clarification, please read the Rules (link at the foot of the page).

If this is preventing you from using the media as it is designed, you should contact Sony.
