    I was just wondering...my storebought San Andreas is starting to skip like 2 seconds out of every two weeks...and I've begun to notice scratching on all my games...so I'm buying a DVD Burner...

    Just wondering, is this burner any good...I'm a little lost as to what to look for in a DVD Burner for PS2 Backups...

    I've heard good things about the HP300i so hopefully the same goes for the 630i...

    I think it burns both DVD+R and DVD-R and its a dual layer burner...

    So this is a good burner? No? Comments are welcome...

    By the way, I'm thinking about going for a flip top and Swap Magic...don't want to risk a mod chip...I don't even know if its legal or not...

    [bold]EDIT: I felt that it would be better posting on this forum because it relates to PS2 backups specifically...that's all I need it for...for now...

    Does the burner change the fact that a game works or not...I mean, can I buy the cheapest burner out there and expect to make backups successfully? As long as I can burn onto DVD-R. A lot of people on this board favor that over DVD+R.[/bold]

    Well...its pretty much a done deal...I'm going to set my order tommorow for a PS2 Magic Swap Discs and the Flip Top Cover!!

    And once I get that, I'll go to my local store and pick up a DVD Burner!!

    Uh-oh...the only reason I want to get a DVD Burner is for this...and if I find that it doesn't work...then the burner is pretty much a waste of money...
