    I backed up two games for my PS2 on RiData 4X DVD+R discs. The games played just fine 3 or 4 times each (with SM3.3). Now I cant get them to play anymore. Do I need better media? Tks.

    If you bought the media within the last couple of months, you might have bad media. If it's been longer than like 3 months or so, it should be good. As long as your lowest burn speed is somewhere around 2x or 1x (never more than 2.4x), that should be ok. I guess the simplest thing to do is try different media. If you get better results, well there's your answer. If not then I don't really know.

    I set the read speed of the original to minimum. I don't know if this helps any or gives you a better success rate, but that's what I do. I don't run into problems.

    By the way, which games are they that are giving you problems?
