    Today I played a backup copy of FFX for the first time and it worked well until one of the cutscenes near the beginning of the game, at which it crashed (screen froze, music stuck). Later, I had problems booting up some of my other backups as well. I would have to unplug the ps2 from the power cable and restart the ps2 each time I wanted to insert a different backup game. Otherwise, it wouldn't recognize the disc. I've never had these problems until today, so is my ps2 starting to wear out?

    I have an internally modded ps2, btw. I have no idea what kind of modchip is inside, as I bought it about 2 years ago from taiwan. The store owner asked me if I wanted to play backup games when I bought it and I said yes, so they modded it on the spot for free.

    Its probably a PS2 problem caused by discs.

    What brand of blank DVDs are you using?

    I'm using verbatim 16x DVD+Rs. Although I tried ffx again and it crashed at the exact same spot again, so I think it might just be a problem with the iso, or maybe the problem was caused by the burning speed I used on the dvd?

    The game was ripped from an older Verbatim 16x DVD+R backup copy and I burned at 16x speed. Would that have affected it by making the game crash?

    16x discs arent recommended for PS2 games, Verbatim/Taiyo Yuden 8x discs burnt at 4x is the best setup.

    If you burned them at 16x then no wonder your having problems, try reburning them at 4x.
