Backup simply means copying files to a second medium as a precautionary measure in case the first medium fails. For computer files, we generally make backup copies to protect the data in the event of hardware failure or virus infection of the original copies. The content of the games could also have the same fate. You know how expensive high-end games can be and the damage they can do to your wallet if you need to get a fresh copy of your favorite game every time it breaks. Game discs are always prone to accidental damage, deterioration or loss due to their fragile nature. It’s not that gamers are careless with their game discs, but due to overuse, or over time, discs eventually get scratched, cracked, or other kinds of problems. All this leads to game data corruption. So always get in the habit of backing them up.

Before burning a game CD, it is important to know that most game CDs have an encryption system to protect data from copyright. Therefore, you cannot use normal software to copy them. General recording software cannot crack the encryption code. There is special video game backup software available now that can break the copyright protection system. This software can create a copy of the game on any other storage media completely like the original copy of the game. It only requires a small amount of space on your computer’s hard drive to run.

This software has the ability to copy any type of video game CD whether it is the original for playstation, PSP, PS2, PS3, Dreamcast, etc. Some software packages are different from others in that they copy discs faster and can completely copy discs in a way that you won’t need a modulation chip to run them. They are a bit more expensive but well worth it.
