Open / burn .mdf / .mds files ?

Question

Sorry to reopen this topic, but I tried both renaming the .mdf file to .iso or using the mdf2iso application, none of them works. .mdf files are native Alcohol 120% files and all the methods I found on the Internet failed.

 

I'm trying to burn an image file that will work on my Ps2. To do this with Toast I use the "Copy" tab (with the "Image file option" checked) but it does'nt work. I lost at least 15 cds trying to do this!

 

Actually Toast does recognize the old .mdf file renamed to .iso, but it just wont treat it as a normal iso file. In the "Copy Summary" space that appears right in the middle of the screen, it says " 60.7MB ISO 9660 CD-ROM XA" and everytime I see this, I know it's not gonna work. On the other side, everytime I burn a real .iso file, wich is usually for much bigger game, it works just fine. The Copy Summary says for exemple: "1.77 GB UDF BRIDGE DVD".

 

So I thought maybe all I had to do is to change the copy options... but why the hell is it in grey?! The place where I should click is right there in front of me under the copy summary, but there's no way I can click it to see the different options!

 

Can anybody answer any of these question? Or has anyone been through the same process and finally found a way to make it work?

 

Thanks for your patience everyone! I know my situation is very specific and kinda gives a headache just to imagine it!!

The discs you burned probably works. The problem is that the Sony PS2 will not read burned discs.

 

Like I said in my previous message :

everytime I burn a real .iso file, wich is usually for much bigger game, it works just fine.

 

I've got what it takes to make it work.

It,s really just these small .mdf games :angry2:

I still found no one that knows how to burn these #$^@ files

After over 2 weeks of trying and failing with every option there is, I found a way to burn a .mds file (and I really mean .mds cuz in that case you wont need the .mdf).

I never thought it would come to this, but the only way for a Mac user to burn these Ps2 games, is to install these two apps :

 

Virtual Pc (version 7 works just fine and is pretty easy to "find")

Alcohol 120% (I tried version 1.9.6.4719, and it works)

 

I wont tell you where and how to find and use these 2 applications, but know that I did find everything I needed on the Internet and its the only way that it really works!

 

In the end, it doesn't use too much space on my computer! And after only one day, I can tell you that the installation "nightmare" is already far away. I even find the whole thing pretty easy to use!
