ps2 games! (possible to backup?)

well I've been trying to back up my ps2 games, as I am ussually not very carefull with them and they are not cheap!
So I've been reading a lot about it and nobady seems to really know, somebody told me to use alcohol 120, and just use the copy dvd wizard, which didnt work, although I followed his instructions carefully, and I complete the process successfully, but after I was done I tryed the new dvd with my copy of resident evil 4, and it said something like put a ps2 disc, or something. Obiusly it didn't work.
I've also tried nero 7 and nothing.

I m pretty good, with computers, but not in this kind of stuff, and I m know how to use alcohol but im not an expert.

Any suggestions?

Ps; i bought medal of honor, and I hate the controls, i just cant play like that, how do I do to be able to play with different controls, or how do I get to use a keyboard and mouse in my ps2?

It is possible to back up PS2 games. There are many resources available on the web that tell you how. it is fairly lengthy to write, so check out this link, http://www.gr00ps.com/en/g/ps2-game-backup/a/this-is-how-ps2-discs-are-made to see a full tutorial. I'm pretty sure the site has forums and other things, so if you have any questions, you'll be able to ask them. Hope this helps.

Take them into a disc resurfacing center.

You may have the right to backup software, but then again certain legal issues can come into play with the mentioned backup software.

If you can, see if there is a place in your town that does disc resurfacing for a fee. That way you do not have to spend money on a game again because it got messed up pretty bad.

I used to BlindWrite to copy PS2 games. It is simple. The software has 20 days free trial period with full function.
