    MAxell DVDs are not that great for PS2 games. I've used Verbatim and I've had 95% success rate.

    for 1(the one that makes noises) i used aclohol 120% for the other that works OK i used DVD decrypter

    oh yeah and both were burning at 4 x

    and i must say i saw something weird with alcohol..when it burnt the buffer was always down and then it would go up for 30 secs every 5 mins and...could that be one of the reasons

    Maxell are good.
    save the mitsumi for movies.

    Burn slower 2x(max)
    for newer ps2 and games use +r

    well +r reads faster in the new ps2's like with a game like gta sa you would want to use +r if you disire, since the ps2 can read it better, and don't worry about the speed thing happend to me but i found out it really doesn't matter to much i've burned 20 brand new realesd games on to -r at 4x using dvd decrypter and they all work perfect but just to be sure use good media when going at 4x

    actually speed matters, i've gotten better results with same dvd-r at 2x than 4x.

    well it doesnt to me i can burn at 4 and get the exact results as i would at 2 or 1 why the hell would i want to wait an hour and some for something i can get in 10 minutes that has the exact results

    people get different results, but many people had better success with lower speed.

    no, you get better success with certain media

    i have some maxell 4x dvd+r and i put san andreas on one and it worked perfect it makes a few noises but i think this is because i have a slimline ps2 which are noisier anyway i tested one on dvd identifier and they turned out to be made by taiyo yuden so im really happy
