I have been doing all kinds of experiments on my ps2 for the last week now. ANd I have gone through 40 blank cd's and a whole lot of DVD-R's. I figured to save some money I would try doing some of my work on CDRW, but it never can even load the cd. If I put the exact same program on a CDR it boots right up and works perfect. IS there some special setting in nero that you need to do for it to read a CDRW? Or is the older PS2 not going to work with them?
