Discussion in 'PS2 - DVD backup discussion' started by Billyjim, Jan 26, 2005.
Does anyone know how the dvd brands: "sonic","digital hq" and "optodisc" work on ps2?
I would stay with these.(those you named arent good for ps2 backups)
The ps2 doesnt read cheap media well
(sometimes not at all)
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%
RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)
which has a better chance of working +R or -R?
