    what games are you having problems with?
    Are they back ups of original games?
    Is it all on the same media?
    That would help us help you.

    Heard a lot of people having problems with ritek go4. Try to use a different media,especially brand names since they are pretty cheap these days.

    No problems whatsoever with ritek go4 discs so dont listen to that reply. I have had 100% success rate with GO4 discs and swap magic 3.3. What you dont want to do is use rubbish like datasafe discs. I have version 7 ps2, burn at 2x. Obviously it will depend on your ps2 for best results

    If you can borrow from somebody a piece of each(+/-) and try tu burn your game. See which one is working coz there r mix results regarding + or -.Like I said, i used ritek-r before but some games im having problem to burn so I tried Sony+r and so far so good.

    Burn at 1x speed to make it less possible for errors. Try using better media. - is more compatible with players, especially older players, but I think + would be fine, they are the new wave of dvd lol. I would suggest -. Better yet, if your friend can lend you + or if u kan afford it, buy both to see which one works better. Make sure to search the forum to find good media to use. Best of all, take it ez...

    +R or -R, that is the question.
    Well you will hear people who use both types. It is whatever works best for you with your PS2 and burner.
    I use Phillips DVD-R 8X discs and they work every time and have no video or audio problems. Ritec G04 i have seen a lot of people using too.
    My burner and PS2 can use either, i have some that i did on Memorex 4X +R discs and they work fine. Try to get single discs or a 5 pack of a few different types and use what works best.
