backup of a PS2 game that does not require a

The primary copy
protection on a Sony PlayStation uses bad blocks on the CD. Most
consumer CD recorders automatically fix a bad block before writing
it to the CD-R. The PlayStation searches for the bad blocks and
won't run the game if they exist.
As a secondary protection, all games are
manufactured with a country code. If the country code on the game
doesn't match that of the PlayStation, the game won't load
You can play a backup game on earlier versions of
the PlayStation by first booting with an original PlayStation disk,
then swapping it for the backup.
The only other way to play a non-working backup is
to add a
to your PlayStation so that you fool it into thinking the backup has
the proper country code and bad blocks.
