    Hey I was just wondering before I order this media if this is the RIGHT kind and if this is a good place to buy it.

    http://supermediastore.com/ritek-4xdvdr-fs.html

    I have read the Ritek 4X G04's are a good choice for PS2 game backups. I finally want to get my GTA San Andreas working right. If any of you use this media and have burned a successful copy of GTA with no lag or no slow loads let me know please. Thank You.

    Memorex sucks. You're lucky that you got a good burn, and you'll be even luckier if the disk is still playable in 6 months.
    @uLie
    Those are decent disks, but the price isn't that great. Meritline.com is selling silver faced 8x Taiyo Yudens for 24.50 for a 50 pack. Go with those. They are the best money can buy.

    Ya go ahead and order from meritline, they have great shipper UPS, they ship fast and reliable, not like stupid fedex lost mypackage.
    I think it costs like 25.50 last time i checked for a 50 pack dvd-r ritekgo4 either matte or silver shinny, they both work.
    Also i have burn san adrea w/ my Lite ON at 2x and it plays just like the original, no lag or freezes.

    I forgot to mention that wherever you buy your media, make sure the shipper is not fedex. I said that b/c i recently bought a 10 pack cd-r from www.allmediaoutlet.com, and fedex hasnt delivered it to my apartment yet and it has been 1 month already.
