Hey everyone, I've been having some problems lately. I ALWAYS use Maxell DVD-R's for my backups and they've always worked until now. I'm begining to think that I got a bad pack of discs. I normally get the 25 pack but this time I got the 50. The first thing I noticed is that on the bottom instead of it being all purple like my other ones, each disc has a very thin silver lining around it. Perhaps this is normal? Anyway, I've tried backing up Black, Transformers, Armored Core, Onimusha Dawn of Dreams, and Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia and each one says "Not a Ps2 Game" when I try to boot it with SwapMagic 3.6. I thought it might have been my burner so I tried backing up Bully on my other more reliable burner. This time, however, it would give me a black screen like it was going to back the game up, but never load. I've backed up my whole collection aside from a few games just fine so I don't know what I could be doing wrong now. I've read somewhere that sometimes an entire pack of DVD-Rs can have a defect of some sort so I'm thinking that might be what is wrong. Or perhaps it's a coincidence that all of those games are tough ones to back up? Anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong? Thanks a bunch.
