    I am unable to play my backup of MGS3 Snake Eater. Please help me!

    After the swap disc boots I press X and then the screen goes black and you can hear the laser continually searching for the game but no avail.

    I would greatly appreciate any help/advice.

    Thanks so much!

    ok, it did work after waiting quite a bit but then it stopped working, and a dvd symbol appeared in the upper left hand corner of my screen and the laser of my ps2 was searching for the game or something, i dont know?

    Is there some way to remedy this? Thanks in advance!

    I had a problem when I burned MGS3 the first time... I used DVD Decrypter and Memorex media and it froze when loading up....

    I switched to Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 8x still using DVD Decrypter... and haven't had a problem since... make sure you are reading at 1X and writing at 1X and try good media like Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden and that may solve your problem....

    You can read at maximum speed, but burn at 1x or 2x to high quality media. TDK or Verbatim are good choices.
