    lately the games i have gotten (manhunt and the bigs) are 4.7 gigs or around there, so I burn them and they play but really really laggy, so I go okay I will rebuild them with isobuster and it reduces the size by a ton but the games do not play with swap magic 3.6. a few months ago when i had these problems i would rebuild and then they would work flawless, any help?

    have you tried rebuilding them with an automated program like Gnie Expert? Worth a try. Personally i have a modchip and never need to rebuild anything.

    there are only a few other things i can think of:
    1. burners firmware is out of date and needs to be updated
    2. using low quality DVD's
    both of those can cause audio/video problems with your back ups or cause them not to work at all.

    Memorex DVD's will only cause you problems. You need to switch to a quality brand like Verbatim. They are about the worst DVD's in the world for backing up games.
