    no their not. depends on what type of media your using and what version of ps2 you have.

    If you buy cheap media then their usless.
    Version 1 through 4 will only except dvd-r but 5 on up will except dvd+ and -

    Since I have a +only burner, I can only use dvd+r! my version3 ps2 CAN read +r and all my backups work perfectly. but it does depend on the brand. bulkpaq dvd+r are totally useless for me.

    you know you can switch your burner from +R to -R with a firmware hack right? even though its not for all burners do a search...

    Searched several months ago, but didnt really want to risk a firmware hack, I found that my ps2 could read +r media so I didnt need to in the end.

    ive got a dvd rw that's only a + (plextor po54a) and it writes them fine. My v7 ps2 reads any game i chuck at it. I havent had it long and i used 25 Ritek printable topped disks that cost me £12 and im now using Samsund.. Samsung seem to be good but they only write at 2.4x not 4.
