Foreword: This is one of my favorite tutorials, and re-writing it from scratch is a lot of work. By doing it over again, I hope to convey to you the awesomeness of the PS2, and if you are an owner of it, you need to give it more love than you think it deserves. It needs you, and you need it.
As usual, The Undergound does not support or advocate piracy. We support making backups of games that you own. We realize that sometimes games can be scratched, so making a digital backup is impossible and in lieu of buying the game again, you can download the PS2 game from a torrent. If you do this method, only do it if you own a retail version of the game.
Downloading games that you do not legally own is illegal, and we want no part of that. Follow the law. Play with a conscience mind. Thank you. ~ Versatile

Yes, it is true. You can make a backup of your PS2 game (for legal purposes of course) to preserve your original game. However, what do you do if your favorite game has gotten scratched up over the years? Do you want to go out and buy another copy of it? Oh wait, Gamestop doesn’t have that game anymore? What are you going to do?
MagicISO is another cool and simplistic CD/DVD burning program. According to their website, it can:
MagicISO is CD/DVD image utility that can extract, edit, create and burn ISO files. ISO file are images (duplicates) of complete CD/DVD disc. containing exact binary copies of the original CDs.

Even better, I did a quick tutorial today on how to burn ISO files with MagicISO. Lucky for me, I am doing a guide on how to burn Windows 7 RC ISO!
