    Iv been wondering whats the better format for burning PS2 games? I was reading through the fourms and theres lots of people saying DVD-R's are better, and a lot of people saying DVD+R's are better. So which one is it? Thanks in advance.

    I've heard that some PS2 won't play DVD+R but I've never run into problems with the DMS4 mod chip. Though I usually use DVD-R which is apparently better for file data rather than Movie playback.

    But if you are unsure then use DVD-R never had a problem.

    there is no real answer to that question.
    Each DVD Drive in the PS2 and PC are a little different and each works best with one or the other.
    Personally i can use both, i always buy 8X DVD-R though (Taiyo Yuden Silver Laquer Premium Line)
    But i have burned on both types. My burner can also booktype (bitset) the discs from DVD+R to DVD-Rom which really helps too.

    if you have one of the first ps2's dont use dvd+r.the slim ones are compatible with dvd+r.on the other hand booktyping is only available on dvd+r which makes that to dvd-rom which is the format ps2 games are in which increases the playback quality.
