    Some games like God Of War 2 are dual layer DVD. Layer 2 will not copy with CloneDVD. You might check the DVD for this.

    Clonedvd is meant for dvd-videos only. Clonecd does backup both layers provided you're using dvd +R DL.

    OK I should have said it will copy it, it just won't play. To copy a dual layer PS2 game requires the Toxic patch.

    Toxic patch?

    What is the Toxic patch?

    Also, I've copied a movie dual layer dvds onto a 8.5gb dual layer dvd+r dl using Nero and it works fine. Would like to copy a PS2 game - not sure if it will work.

    You are on the right track there, it's about the fourth listing down. Here is the low down:

    Introduction
    ============

    As many of you are probably aware, the PS2 has problems running DVD9 games
    backed up onto dual layer media due to to problems reading from the second
    layer. This is because the data format on burnt DL discs is different than on
    pressed discs (burnt = OTP, pressed = PTP). However, we have discovered a
    software hack which allows the PS2 to read even burnt OTP discs resulting in
    working dual layer backups! Our Toxic firmware for DMS4 chips already includes
    auto-patching functionality which applies our software hack on the fly when
    booting games on dual layer media. For those without a DMS4, we present the
    Toxic Dual Layer Image Patcher! The patcher works by applying our software
    hack to the game image (.iso, .gi etc) before burning. Once the hack has
    been applied by our patcher, burn the modified image to dual layer media
    and play! This method will enable anybody with a modchip capable of booting
    DVD9 media to backup and _play_ DVD9 games such as Gran Turismo 4.
