    When I'm playing backups my PS2 makes loud noises. And sounds like it is having trouble reading the disc. Skipping during spoken dialogue and FMVs.

    But when I play original games it sounds and runs smoothly.

    When I'm using swap magic 3.3 and slide magic, I get a red flash. But the game loads.

    I'm using Samsung Pleomax DVD-R media and Maxwell CD-R 80/700MB.

    Could it be my media? Should I buy more quality media? If so, what do you recommend?

    EDIT: I burn using DVD Decrypter at the 1x burn. Though I don't think it's actually burning at that speed.

    I don't know how to help you but I can tell you that every backup I've made has a red flash before the game starts and they've always worked for me anyway:)

    Wierd. The website for swap magic says, a red flash means it cannot read the disc. Blue is what you're looking for.

    I know. I don't understand it either but since I've never had a problem, I don't worry about it.
