Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Are you talking about backing up your PS2 games?
For that you can use many different programs (Alcohol 120%, Nero, Magic Disc< etc.)
But this is the catch, you can back them up and burn them, but you can't play them. You see, Sony burns their games in a special way, the disk (PS2 game) tells the console, Hello I'm a PS2 game, but your backup would say, Hello I have this in me ("this" is what ever game). But ye you can play them, but for that ou woud need a mod chip. Mod chips void warranty and if not installed correctly, can ruin your console.
Anyways, hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
The PlayStation 2, like the original PlayStation, incorporates circuitry to prevent the playing of copied or out-of-region discs and programs produced by people who are not paying percentage to the Sony Corporation (unlicensed games etc.). User response to this - grey market for modchips. PS2 Mod-Chips when installed, bypass the checks and allow the copied CD-R and DVD-R backup discs to run.
Obviously the installation of mod-chips in PlayStation 2 consoles is widely discouraged by Sony -- the reason is piracy. You must know that Sony has overlaid a seal onto each of their PS2 consoles. If this seal is broken (thus providing evidence that the console has been opened and "modded"), Sony will refuse to repair the system. On the other hand if your console is more than one yer old and no longer covered by the manufacturer warranty you should not worry about fraking the seal -- it will not change anything.
It can be done spending around few $15 to $20 i guess.
I own a PS2 which is modded before a year and still it works with out any trouble. You can ask if u have any questions about PS2.
Thank you, Thyagu.A

I have also envountered problems with dogs life, my only reasonable explination is:
dogs life is most propably written on a normal CD-R,
and sometimes a chipped PS2 struggles to read CD-R games, you will also find that older PSX games wont work either, hope this is of some help.
have a blessed day.
