    hi im sry if this has alrdy been posted ive looked for a right answer but none have worked so far so heres my exact prob,
    i have recently backed up about ten games all work like a dream but recently ive come accross this game 'teenage mutant ninja turtles' when backing this up it says invalid ps2 disc my method:

    ive done exact same method as bin using with my other backups i make image with alcahol 120% then use image burning wizard in alcahol 120 % burning at slowest speed which is 4x with these dvd's they are ritek g05
    full face printable dvd-r's, im using swap magic version 3.3 dvd as cd version dont load on my ps2 , the game disc says dvd rom on front and has silver bottem and is 1.75 gigs in size , i load the discs with the slide tool im not entiryly sure what version my ps2 is i think its one of the first versions bought it when first com out as ive read how to figure this out n got to it saying its v3 or lower, think thats all info i can think of,

    any sujestions will b much apreiciated!,

    try getting another ritek type of dvd.. like ritekgo4.. they work best on ps2's or get better media, like verbatim, tdk, ritekgo4, and fujifilm (<--works best for me!)

    ps2's are picky of ritek go5s, and it was probably a bad burn.. but i would go with ritek go4s. they're the best.. unless you need DVD+R.

    The following list is in preference order. The best discs are near the top of the list. The discs at
    the bottom of the list are suitable only for a landfill.

    Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
    PVC = Pioneer = (-R)(-RW)
    MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<--VERBATIM
    TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)

    Decent discs, though not perfect, about 85-95%
    success rate:

    RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
    SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
    INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
    RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)
    RITEKG03 = Ritek = (-R)
    OPTODISC = Optodisc = (-R)

    Quality can be very questionable, about 50-80% success rate:

    LEADDATA or LD01 or LD or LEDA = Lead Data = (-R)(-RW)
    PRINCO = Princo = (-R)(-RW)
    RITEK = Ritek = (-RW)
    ONIDTECH = OnidTech = (-R)

    Pathetic garbage media, landfill material, about 0-50% success rate:

    RITEKG01, RITEKG02 = Ritek = (-R)
    PIODATA = Lead Data = (-R) ... often sold as "Pioneer OEM" but that's false
    Unbranded PIO = Fake Pioneer = (-R) ... often sold as "Pioneer OEM" but that's false
    Unbranded SONY = Fake Sony = (-R)
    Unbranded MXL = Fake MXL = (-R)
    ACCU = Unknown OEM = (-R)
    LONGTEN = Unknown OEM = (-R)
    AN31, AN32, ANWELL, AN30 = Unknown OEM = (-R)
    OPTODISC = Optodisc = (+R)(+RW)
    MATRIX = Unknown OEM = (-R)
    CMC = CMC Magnetics = (+R)(-R)
    ANYTHING ELSE = Unknown OEM or NEW
