    I use alcohol 120% to create an .iso image of the game on my pc hard drive, then again use alcohol 120% to burn the .iso file to CD/DVD.

    i just made a copy with alcohol 120% and havin the exact same problem, the only thing i can think is that i used the same iso. for all of them so maybe it was a bad iso. or that it was my disks but there taiyo yuden so i doubt it

    Could always be a bad batch of discs. Have you got a mate with another chipped PS2 that you could try one of your burnt discs on?

    doubt its the disks because i tried two types, weah i could try a mates, i might just either copy it again and also put it on a -r disk, the -r might work better on my ps2, how come you alcohol and not dvd decrypter to back up your games

    A couple of questions here (and some answers)...

    Have you had success with all your other backups and only had problems with nfs2? If yes then you might consider a different media or try ripping it again to get a better read.

    If you also had problems with your other rips/backups then you might have your problem with your ps2 itself. I have an old ps2 and my backups always played horribly until I heard about adjusting the laser. That solved my problem 100%, and even GTA:SA, which people all say is a difficult burn, played beautifully on my loved and unfortunately abused system (v4:GT edition). This isn't a cureall for everyone but it seemed to work pretty well as a last resort fix for me...I think Sony didn't really count on this type of service life from these machines.

    This may be deviating from the original post, but does anyone else see a correlation between burn speeds and media type? I have a Sony DRU-510a and I can't get, in regards to this game, my drive to burn it at anything less than 2x. I always heard burning at 1x is optimal in regards to these situations of burning massive games that use maximum disk space.

    radiofree: no this is the first time its happened, iv used ty's and verbatim but im gonna burn again but make a new iso. first and see how it comes out, if that still dosen't work i'll put it on a dvd-r but i hope it its the same for -r because if its not my ps2 works better for -r and i just gotten a hundred ty's +r and don wanna have to buy some -r's

    I think your +r's are just fine...I always use the Ritek +r and I think it is the most stable of all the media. I may be wrong here, but I think I remember seeing something somewhere saying that the PS2 is a primarily +r reader first. I don't even know if that is accurate way of putting it...

    sounds like it might just be the burn...if you see other massive games or potentially poor-burned games not working too well you can try adjusting the laser. That worked for me when I started seeing the same problem - simple solution is just to rip again though and try that.
