    Use Better Media
    Ps2 requires a darker (AZO) dye.
    save those for movie backup,
    and get some good media.
    Good luck

    The following list is in preference order. The best discs are near the top of the list.

    Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
    PVC = Pioneer = (-R)(-RW)
    MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<-----------------VERBATIM MY CHOICE #1
    TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)<--------------FUJIFILM (made in japan) MY CHOICE #2

    Decent discs, though not perfect, about 85-95%
    success rate:

    RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
    SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
    INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
    RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)

    YOUR DISKS ARE WAY AT THE BOTTOM.

    i have already made a copy of one game. Would it be unwise to run that game?

    if you hear funny noises or sounds yes.
    Anything abnoamal screeching or loud.
    Youll know either itll make those sounds
    or the game wont load.

    I would be willing to bet sooner or later that media will give you problems,
    but hey, if it works whatever floats your boat.

    Good luck

    certain ps2's read certain media better. If that works for u, keep using it. I use 8x memorex dvd-r. Many people don't recommend 8x and memorex media. But it works for me.
