    ok i got a version 4 PS2 that i just installed a brand new laser in. before, the laser was worn and even had a rip on the underside ribbon cable(dont know how that got there).

    anyways, i was planning on buying the swap magic disks and found that most version 4 PS2 dont read dvd+r media but do read dvd-r. well here is my problem, i have a dvd+r burner. i have backed up a few movies and tried them and they worked perfect. only one did not work and that was one that i had to rip all the menus and extra features.

    so my question is, would i be able to back up some dvd based games on some dvd+r media and play them with the use of the swap magic disks? or will it only work with movies? thanks a lot.

    btw, the dvd media i used was memorex dvd+r

    Try it and see. From what I have read here on v4s some work with +R and some don't but I haven't seen any way of determining which do beforehand.

    I'd guess if it reads +r movies, it'll read +r games too.
