    I am a newbie in this forum so pardon my ignorance. I have a PS2 V4 magic mod chip and a Sony-DRUa. I also have a pioneer dvd reader. I would like to know what media (preferably cheap) is compatible with both the Sony-DRUa and the playstation 2. Would Princo or Accu do the trick and has anyone had success with these brands?I would rather use DVD-R's because I'm not sure if my playstation would read +R's or +RW's. Thanks in Advance!

    I am not using DVD-r media but only DVD+r and +rw.
    I think you should buy good quality media, and I think Princo works fine.
    Why don't you buy one and try it out.
    If it works you can always buy a spindle of 25 Princo DVD-r. You get my point ?

    Yeah, I bought a Princo spindle of 25 from Rima.com and I'm crossing my fingers that both the sony dru-500a and the playstation 2 with both be compatible with the princo dvd-r media. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks for the reply!

    Look: what you have to do now is make a backup. you have 25 of them so its no use talking about them. Just give it a try.
    I am 99% sure it will work.

    Go on and take some riscs in live !

    Oke I thought so, because of the question over and over again. I think you are a bit worried of the fact you allready bought them and wanted to check if they really work. I understand. So you have to wait and see...
    I allready heard the combination of Sony-DRUa and the Princo's are ok. So don't worry, but let me know if it's ok.
