    Hello!
    I would like to know your opinio about what CD brand is the best for:
    - PS2 backup games
    - PS2 media files (avi etc.) with reality player
    What brands does the PS2 'swallow' (V9).

    -=Heared RitekG04 and YUDEN are fine=-

    i dont know if its the best but ps2's read bulkpaq pretty well.ive got hundreds of bulkpaq cd-r backups.

    a V9 ps2 should be fine with most A-Grade media.Ridisc AAA+,Ridata A etc etc

    1.Viterbrem
    2.TDK
    3.Phillips
    4.Memorex

    These here are basicly the best that you can use. I never have a problem backing up Ps2 games with number 1 and 2.
    Hope this helps your question..
    As with the Ps2 media files, cant help ya there.
    Maybe do a search. or just google it..

    Most ps2 games are on DVD now and u really should go to the ps2 cd boot fourm but anyway use memorex 700mb disks very good and they are not easly effected by "cd rot"

    Thanks actually I cant figure out the problem im having. I had someone chip my ps2 for me and I was supposed to get the DMS4 pro, bt after a whole fiasco i got 50 bucks back and some old chip. He game me a backup to show it worked but i cant make a good backup of anygames it seems ISO backups wont boot. I checked the disk he gave me and it looks totaly different than the files in a mounted iso. The image is in there and Data files but and the system file but there not in folders there all opened on the dvd, the iso files i made are in folders. so i dont think its the dvds. Arghhhhhh no one knows what im talking about either so thanks foryour info anyway, wish me luck.
