    I am attempting it for the first time and am having a problem. I have a NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A burner on my cpu from Dell and am trying to burn to TDK DVD-R 4.7gb 4x DVDs. i am using DVD Decrypter to read an iso image on my hard drive then i try to write @ 1x speed. i keep getting an error message at the boton saying "device not ready (medium not present)" is my burner capable of doing this, an i using the right DVD. I'm trying to backup "Grand Theft Auto. San Andreas" Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong.

    Hmm...

    for the post above me. I hear that GTA:SA is dual layered. So you will need a dual layered DVD.

    gts:sa is not dual layered.

    it is saying device not ready?
    Maybe something to do with the burner.

    I have backed up gta:sa.
    Worked fine no problems.

    jday8480,
    I hope you didn't buy to many TDK DVD-R 4.7gb 4x DVDs, The burner you own (according to you) is a NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A, looking at what you have typed it will only burn DVD+ not the DVD- disks you have, that would explain the unable to read media error message.

    Grab some + disks and all should be sweet.

    Every ps2 can handle -r's, only ps2 versions 5+ can handle +r's. Occasionally v4's can handle +r's as well.

    My freind had the same problem with the - and the + rs so dont worry about it next time you go get another burner though what you need to do is get one that reads all of them because sometimes not all the time -r's come up cheaper ifd you need anymore help on this please write back
