as long as your version of nero supports dvd writing then yep. All i've ever done is click dvd copy, set the speeds then leave it and its worked 100% for me!

hope this helps

check out the tutorials over at www.psxcopyworld.co.uk

best software for PrimoDVD (for DVD) and CloneCD (for CD)

you obviously need a DVD burner such as the Pioneer A04 if you wish to backup DVD based games.

Dont get me wrong, I think Nero is a very useful backup tool, however from personal experience I would recommend PrimoDVD for DVD based games and CloneCD for CD based games. CloneCD is the only software that will create a 1:1 cd-r copy.

In a list of 1/2/3

DVD
1. PrimoDVD/RecordNow Max
2. Nero
3. Discjuggler

CD
1. CloneCD
2. CDRWin
3. Nero


eastcostguy - check out my site under the playstation page for links to burning software - http://psxpaul.cjb.net

where do you live? we can give you links to best sites for purchasing.

Personally I would stick with the Pioneer range of burners - A03/A04/A05.
