    I don't know that make of DVD, but you should burn it on either Sony, Fuji, Verbatim, Ritek or Taiyo Yuden, along those lines and use DVD-R and burn it at 4x or half of what your discs allow.
    It could very well just be the media you burned it too.

    Yes there is a possibility, or you could use imgburn to read the disc you have to an ISO, then reburn the ISO you just created to the new disc.
    Thats how I would do it.

    That should fix it using proper media. There are some great guides in the DVD or general section to read upon.
    We have ended up with a few coasters at one time or another, part of the process sometimes.

    Well thats good at least you have done some reading.
    I think this post is good.

    My recommendation would be to first try burning this game to another DVD of good quality and DVD-R.
    Another idea if that doesnt work is that it may need to be rebuilt as the TOC may be larger than swap magic.

    I got maxell cd which DVD+R.i tried for DVD-R but couldnt find it.i decrpt the game from the cd and it was only 4.29gb.so i think itz not a DVD-9 game.metal gear solid 2 skate boarding is a DVD-9 game which is given in a thread like i said previously.i used dvd decrypt then iso buster to extract the files and now i used nero expressand made a data disc,which i think i made a mistake,i was suppose 2 use nero burning rom 2 burn it which i totaly forgot.so hopefully it should work right or is there a step that i am missing after iso buster..i tried playing in ps2 and finally the result is it doesnt work..either it shows browse the cd or the red screen comes for insert the cd or ps2 format..either of these 2 come.2 problems 1.is dvd+r and 2.nero express.were either of these reason for not working??

    Maxell is not the best DVD to choose from either, but its what you have.
    All you needed to do once you had the ISO was burn it using imgburn(successor of DVD Decrypter), just google it and download it.
    You didn't need to have extracted the ISO with ISObuster.

    Yes I see the Maxell DVD-R as 1st class media. I just don't prefer them, but they should be fine.
    It should be fine, just burn the ISO and see if it works.
    Your game is originally a DVD9 game
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_2_DVD-9_games
    If you still have troubles, maybe it wasn't flattened properly(ripped) to a DVD5 is all I can suggest. Check where you obtained it from and see if anyone else had any problems.
    Here is an older thread on this game.

    I just edited my post above with an older link on this game. Read through that then.
    You should have 2 disks then is how it should have been ripped to DVD5.
    Another suggestion for you also is when burning with DVD+R, make sure to change the Booktype to DVD-ROM as shown in this link.

    i have a folder named MGS2 which contains CODEC,DEMO,FACE,VOX,STAGE,MOVIE
    den i have a folder named MODULES which contains
    IOPRP23,MODULE.IPK,PLD.IRX
    den i have a system and SLUS_201.44 files..which comes 2 4.29gb..this is metal gear solid 2 it seems because the thread which u just gave ,in that ALKOHOL a afterdawn addict said that he had a 4.3gb game..so i must be having the same thnig..aint it ..
