Now, for a bit of 'disclaimer' stuff:

  • First of all, use any information on here at your own risk.  Not that anything on this site should damage your computer or PSX, but it may cause brain damage as cited in laboratory tests on flies.  I take no responsibility for your actions, for those I might encourage, or those of your flies.
  • Making so-called 'backups' of your PlayStation games is completely legal.  HOWEVER, the law states that to make a backup, you must OWN the ORIGINAL SOFTWARE.  This means you have BOUGHT the game and you have the ORIGINAL CD in your possession.  All the information I give on this site is ONLY meant to be used by those persons who OWN their games and are looking for a way to  keep little Johnny from ruining a $1,500.00 collection of games in a matter of minutes with a jar of peanut butter and a good knife.  If you do not OWN and contain IN YOUR POSESSION the game you are looking to backup, you MAY NOT use the information on this site, for I WILL NOT condoan illegal activities.  For each infraction of copyright infringment, you are subject to a $100,000.00 fine.  Trasnslate as you need to for your country of residence.
  • Ok.  Now for what I really want to say.   Please note that I am completely open to suggestions here.  I do not take full credit for any of the information on this FAQ page -- the vast majority of it was taken from various sites around the internet like the PSX Copy Discussion Forum, for one.    I have spent quite some time trying to sort out fact from fiction, but I am by no means an expert in this area... just an avid fan with a lot of experience.  So if you find anything on this site that needs revision, please e-mail me and let me know about it.  I also try to keep up with the latest and greatest in technology, but again, I can't possibly keep up with all of it... so as before,  if you see something I need to add, just let me know.
  • You MAY NOT copy, re-use or link to ANY page except my home page ( without my permission.  If you do, I will hunt you down and take action against you.  This is not because I'm a 'jerk' or 'egotistical' about my site.   It is because the majority of the information on this site comes with restrictions that have been placed on me that *I* am the only one allowed to use this information, and it is not allowed to be recopied since it is all copyrighted material.  Please comply with this simple request.  If you find something of use and you would either like to link to it, or re-use it on your own page, e-mail me and we'll discuss it.  More than likely I will point you in the direction of the owner of the material and have you work it out with them as I did.
  • And if you think of anything that you would like to help with (even suggestions on how to improve this site!) feel free to make those comments as well - I'm no expert!
