PlayStation 1&2

Windows: Use DVD Decrypter

There are other more recent updated programs however (Such as Imgburn), this is the only one I can find that doesn't ask you to install toolbars and other malware.


Step 1: Put your PS1 or PS2 disc into your computer.

Step 2: Open DVD Decrypter

Step 3: Click Mode>ISO>Read

Step 4: Choose the destination of the file, by clicking the little folder+magnifying glass button.

Step 5: Click the DVD button at the bottom.

Step 6: Wait for it to finish burning.

Step 7: Play ISO in whatever emulator you use ( PCSX-Reloaded is recommended)
