i bought color memorex dvd-r 8x and burn gta : vicecity with recordnow 7. everything works i cut the top of my ps2 and made my own flip flop top, also i burn the cd loader to a disc. Use gameshark to boot up the cd loader, the game sometime plays fine, except it take awhile to load,or this one time the game loaded everything ecept my sound. i was reading what software you guys use so i download nero dvd, and burn the game at 1x but it automatically change when the burning process start, to 4x. so anyways it burned and i try playing the game but it only load up 1/2 way and stop. i use the same cd but different software and going to try the ritek dvd-rand see how it comes out.
