    [bold]New Burner:[/bold]
    Sony 16x DVD+R Single Layer
    DVD+R Double Layer
    DVD+/-RW
    DVD+/-R
    CD

    [bold]Disc Type:[/bold]
    TDK DVD+R 4.7GB (4x Compatible)

    [bold]Device Im Using:[/bold]
    Swap Magic 2.0

    I tried backing up a playstation game of mine using DVD Decyrpter. I [bold]"read"[/bold] the ISO file onto my hard drive(desktop) and then [bold]"write"[/bold] it onto my disc. Everything went smooth. I wrote it at a 1x speed.

    It finished and I swapped it. It started up but I noticed it was kind of lagging. I started to play the game for about 5 seconds and it froze. I can still hear the audio though.

    Anybody have any suggestions? Maybe its the disc? Maybe the burner?

    I tried burning SpiderMan 2.

    My PS2 version is
    Console:SCPH-39001

    Is that burner any good?

    your burner and media should be fine. I'd try a different game and see if you get the same results.

    Something I noticed when Im writing the disc is the buffer stays on 100% the whole time its burning.

    What causes this? Im not on the web surfing. I just let it do its thing until it finished.

    Damn it.. The one that I thought I burned had the same problems as the Spiderman2 game I burned...

    It lags!!! It takes forever to get from one screen to another you never get to play the game.

    Im thinking its the media, but at the same time Im thinking its the "[bold]SONY[/bold] BURNER" thats doing this since Im trying to burn these backups for my "[bold]SONY[/bold] PS2"

    Hit me back, because Im might have to take this burner back if it doesnt burn on another brand of disc!

    Okay, I figured out what I did wrong. I was burning the ISO File instead of the MDS file when copying to the disc.

    Is there any difference as far as making a backup off the original PS2 game, than copying another backup game? Such as quality, quickness, etc.
