    I downloaded MGS off the net and now when i burn it on memorex 8x dvd -r and +r with nero, dvd decrypter and even Alcohol 120% it will not work. i have swapmagic and it goes to a black screen and will do nothing at all.. i burned at the lowest speed avail 2x- 4x. does anyone have the same problem or did they get it to work and if so can u please tell me what prog they used and what media with speed and if it was -r or +r...ive been working on this for the last three days and im about to breakdown and buy the game.. lol
    spec: Plextor PX-716A burner
    memorex 8x dvd -r and +r

    I have used Memorex 8x dvd -r on my other games and it worked perfectly such as San Andreas, Mortal Kombat, Killzone, Megaman and others they all worked on memorex so how can memorex be crappy, plus others on this forum have had success with memorex. But this is the only game i cant figure out.. there has to be some setting im missing or one little change i need to do, cuz i know memorex will work on this.
