    K, well i searched everywhere to get some imput on CDR media for PS2, posting this.


    Currently am using swap magic 3.3 with fliptop for V12 slim PS2

    I can backup my dvd - on to DVD+R with no coasters.
    cd-r is where i have problems
    Have cdr based backups. Less than 700mb in size.

    I was able to get One game to work using Imitation cd-r
    But thats about it, Any other backup i burn will give me either an invalid ps2 format disk error, or get stuck on the load screen forever

    I burn at 1x.

    I also tried Maxell cdr with no luck.

    What other media should i try? Or is this not the medias fault?

    Any imput greatly appreciated.

    From what I've heard, SM has trouble with CD backups around 630 MB or more. Apparantly you need breaker pro for this.

    However, maybe you can convert this game into a DVD and have it load like that? I've heard this is possible, but I know absolutely nothing about it.

    I'm hoping someone will answer this problem so I'll know what I can do about my CD-Rip of Initial D : Special stage ^_^"
