kwe,
There are many programs available for recording CD-R/W.
There are sofware packages that will copy an exact CD image.
You need to insure that the program of your choice will support your hardware though.
Different programs have various features built into them but not all software supports every type of recorder.
Many of the best sources for info about CD recording can be found in the FAQ at:
http://www.cd-info.com/CDIC/Technology/CD-R/FAQ.html
As I understand it, Playstation backups require modification to the player to successfully run.
I hope this helps.
Regards,
Ralph

BTW, they seem like not in rush to update FAQ on this site (1.4)
Most recent version I saw on Usenet (news) in comp.answers 2 parts
version 2.0, which INCLUDES many issues of CD-RW technology and
drives.
Hmm. CD-RW media is expensive toy. I prefer CD-R. Today they're
dirt cheap and readable by almost all CD-ROMs (contrary to CD-RW).

I agree with the comment to use CDRs instead of CDRW disks. I use CDRWIN 4.10 to burn games and have had excellent results. Remember to burn the disks slowly. I am not sure what software you're currently using, but I have read about problems using Adaptec and Nero on your machine at the same time. I don't believe these software programs are the best at copying the "bad sectors" what are security measures on Playstation disks. Good luck
