I have looked through the stickied stuff, and nothing seems to help. My problem is that some of my DVDs can't seem to load, while some others can. There is a noticeable difference between the DVDs that boot and the ones that don't. The DVDs that boot seem to have data from the outer edge of the disk inwards, then blank disk space to the center. They are Disgaea and Disgaea 2. The DVDs that don't boot, or don't boot as quickly, have unburned space at the outer edge, then burned data, then more blank space to the center. These are Okami (which worked occasionally), Katamari Damacy (which worked once), Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, Devil Summoner, and DDS 1 and 2, Kingdom Hearts 2, and Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires. I was wondering if this was the problem, and if so, how can I remedy this problem. By the way, I'm using Verbatim DVD-R's and cogswaploader/swap magic to boot. I have a v. 9 PS2 and a good DVD burner.
