    i use ritek g04 they're the best i've ever used. they can take alot of scratches and still work fine. Also I haven't had one bad burn.

    I always use Phillips DVD-R 8X and they work every time. have also heard good things about the Ritec and TDK

    but bad things about Memorex.

    i have a friend who uses them and they work good. I can play them on both my V7 and my slim PSTwo.
    I don't use anything but Phillips DVD-R 8X myself for just about every game i burn. I have a 100% success rate with those discs. they have fast load times, are reliable and have a dark purple bottom surface which the PS2 loves. The darker the better.

    If you can find Taiyo Yuden, those are supposedly the best. I haven't used them personally, but I think they will be my next batch. I love the Ritek G04 (Don't like Ridata though), but a few months ago they started to go south (too many people buying all of a sudden, mass production leads to shotty manufacturing). I read that they're starting to get better, but I'm using the same batch I bought like 6 months ago.

    Be aware of buying Taiyo Yuden squizzle, there are MANY fakes made. They call them Taiyo Yuden but use crap dye still

    yeah, I read all about the TY fakes. If they say "Made in Japan" they're ok right?

    I use Maxell's that are Made in Japan. Some are TY's and others come up as Maxell's own ID.

    The Maxell's also do 8X but I always burn at 1X, works reliably for me.
