PSX/PS2 ISO Files
Trouble with files
I tried downloading several different games one being "Capcom Classics Vol 1" for PS2 it looked like a 7 Zip file but i cant open it with 7 Zip... should i try a different program or am i being dumb? Thanks Guys.

Is this the one? Make sure you download both part 1 and part two that are on the same page. You should end up with 2 files. A 001 file and a 002 file. Extract the 001 file with 7zip and it will extract both of them to give you a single ISO. There is no password

No offense. But you seem very new to the modding. I suggest you check out some guides around here. There are too many unanswered questions to be able to help you properly. Poke around on this site. And check out some guides here:
http://www.psisozone.com/tutorials/

Need to know what system you are trying to play on. The Capcom Generations you originally asked for is a PS2 game, and Skull Monkeys is a PS1 game. Do you have a PS1 or PS2?

Also, if its a PS2, is it modded in any way? You cant play burned games on an unmodded PS2. You need to have a chip, or the FreeMcboot memory card, or Swap Magic (which i know nothing about).

There is a FreeMcboot guide here
http://www.theisozone.com/forum/viewtop ... f=78&t=344

If you already have FreeMcboot, and are using ESR with it, you need to patch the PS2 ISOs with ESR before you play it. You can find the patcher here
http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/pla ... v024a-usa/

Also, if you are trying to play the PS1 backups on a PS2, you will need it modded in some way. And if you are memory card modded, you will need to use a swap trick. You cant just boot a PS1 backup. You have to first put in an original PS1 game, and as soon as you hear some sound, you take the original out, and put the backup in and it will play. This is if you have a fliptop PS2. If you have a fat ps2 with tray, i think you need swap magic.

If you are trying to play the burnt PS1 games on a non modded PS1, you need to use a swap method, which is a little trickier than the PS2 mehod. You can find a video on how to do it here
http://www.psisozone.com/tutorials/psx/ ... ified-psx/

For PS2 ISOs, considering if you have your system modded correctly, all you need to do is patch the ISO with ESR (already gave a link to the ESR patcher) and burn it to a DVD-R. I suggest ImgBurn. Burn at 6-8x speed. And put a checkmark in verify. ImgBurn is superior to any other burning software. There are no settings to mess with, and works great. You can find a copy here. And if you want to be able to burn PS1 or Dreamcast games with it also, follow the instructions provided in the download on where to put the CD files you get. Then you can burn CD games also.
http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/dre ... g-package/

And just a FYI---- If you have the memory card hack, you cannot use CD based PS2 games. ESR is not compatible with ESR. You will need to convert the CD games to DVD. Lets save that for later.

You can however play PS1 CD games on the PS2 with the swap method though.

And to burn a PS1 game, also use the ImgBurn i gave you a link to. (You will need to put the CD files that are included with the download in the right spot, there are directions). If its bin/cue format, burn either the bin or cue. They will both work. The bin is the actual game, and a cue is a file that just directs you to the bin.

If the PS1 game is in img/ccd/sub format. Burn either the IMG or CCD. Same thing as bin/cue. One is the actual game, the other just points to the game. They will both work.

Sorry to throw so much out there, but just really dont know what your situation is. Feel free to ask away though. There are lots of people that know Playstation stuff here. And i suggest making a thread in the PS2 forum section rather than blog.

I have a modded PS2 it is correctly modded, back in the day i used to just backup games directly from my comp with 2 cd/dvd drives, i can play my old ps1 and ps2 back up games just fine. Im just having trouble with learning how to do all this stuff. I tried skull monkeys but alcohol says i dont have the right type of cds. I tried HP DVD-R blank disks, Memorex CD-R and sever others i had laying around and it wouldnt let me use them it said please insert a CD/DVD-R which i had!
I originally used Astroburner to burn the Skullmonkeys .bin file onto the DVD and it burned but it didnt work on the playstation at all just a black screen. Thanks for the suggestions ill check the sites out.

I use Memorex CD-R 52x, 700mb, 80 minute for my PS1 games. Never had a modded console so not sure on that part. For PS1 games you will definately need to use CD-Rs. DVD wont work. Try that imgburn i linked. Make sure you put the cd files that are included into the root of your Imgburn folder which you will find in your c drive under program files after you install. Its 3 files you need to put in there. pfctoc.dll, pfctoc.h and pfctoc.lib.Maybe try another game also. Havnt personally tried the skull monkeys from here, maybe its a bad file. But ya, sounds like you are doing what you need to. Just try another burning software and game file

When you extract the rar for imgburn, you get the setup for imgburn, and another rar file titles "cdi files for imgburn" Do the setup and get it installed. Then extract the cdi files rar. You will get the 3 pftoc files. Go to your C drive, program files, and open your imgburn folder. Just drop those 3 files into that folder and good to go

No, your imgburn folder. In program files in your C drive. When you open it you should see Languages, Sounds, ImgBurn, ImgBurnPreview, Uninstall. Just add them into there
