Copying PS3 games has become a hot topic online, with many people wondering how they can make copies & backups of their favorite games without the hassle of making bad copies. The only problem is that since PS3 games are blu-ray, this can be quite tricky. But luckily, this tutorial will show you how to burn them.
What You Need
To burn a PS3 game, you will need some software and other equipment. Here’s what you need:
- a blu-ray burner (not cheap!)
- blank blu-ray discs
- your original PS3 gaming disc
- imgBurn software (from imgburn.com)
How To Burn The PS3 Games
To burn a PS3 games, you first need to get imgBurn on your PC. This is the software which will allow you to copy the blu-ray discs that the PS3 games are burnt on. You get this from imgburn.com – you just need to download the software, install it and then run it.
When you’ve installed the imgBurn software, you just need to then open it up, put your original PS3 game in your blu-ray drive and then click on “Create image from disc”. Then choose the place where you want to save the image file and let imgBurn do its work. This will save the contents of the game disc as an “image file” which we will be able to burn later.
After the software has saved the image of the game, you then need to open imgBurn’s main screen again and then select the “Write Image File To Disc”. This will bring up a new screen, where you can select an image file you want to burn to disc. At this point, you need to put your blank blu ray disc into the drive and then select the image file that you just copied. Then you need to select a write speed of 4X (for maximum success) and then proceed to let imgBurn put the game data onto your blank disc.
After about 40 minutes, the process should complete and you’ll have burnt PS3 to disc!
How To Play Your Copied Games
Although burning the disc is the easy part, it’s getting your console to play them which is difficult. This is a problem which prevents many people from actually playing their copied games on their console, and is fixed by performing a few tweaks to your PC and PS3. These don’t void the warranty, but you need to know how to do them properly.
