Backing up games

Is it possible to back up ps2 games under Linux ?

I have made a copy of a ps2 game but when i insert the dvd into the console i get an error saying that i should insert a ps2 disk.

Im assuming that I havnt made an <b> exact <\b> copy or maybe im missing something can someone explain the process ?

(I think i better add that, yes this is a purchased game that i payed for and that i am not intending any sort of piracy)

Anyone who has children will understand that a 60 quid game and a child dont last long

any help would appreciated

The original PS had to be chipped to play copied games. I imagine the PS2 is much the same or worse. You can't copy the disk exactly and thats part of the copy protection...

I certainly understand what you mean, which is why I mod chipped the original PS even though we bought all the games. Haven't even thought about it with the PS2 as the kids are older now and sort of look after it...
