    For my ver7 i use verbatim +r
    No coasters yet!!!!
    1)-Use good media (not Memorex)---Bad
    http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm
    2)-Turn off any background apps when burning
    game backups
    3)-Dont burn any higher than 2.4x

    Some ps2 ver 1-4 have problems with +r
    But for ver7 you should use +r
    (Loads quicker)

    So are Verbatim DVD+-R's the best, and are they what your calling taiyo yuden?. Cause I just got a 25pack of Ritek G04 4x DVD-R's and I've seen people are sayin to get them cause their good for PS2 games. So what are the BEST??.

    Cheers.
