    Ok, I have a ps2 game on my computer.. and when I burn it onto my verbatim DVD-R (8x) it doesn't work. I tried at 8x and it didn't work at all, then I tried at 4x (that was the lowest choice I had in alcohol 120) and it took EXTREMELY LONG load times on the ps2, about 15 minutes to pass the first loading screen.. and then during the beginning video the screen would freeze and change once every couple of minutes..

    so, if anyone has any idea why, let me know what settings i should use in nero or alcohol 120% to fix this.

    alcohol 120
    FILE>OPTIONS>DATA SETTINGS>REC OPTIONS...SET SPEED
    if this does not work,get some media that doesnt support such high speeds.
    you can also try burning with dvd decrypter

    ***** BURN AT NO MORE THAN 2X****** <-----------(IMPORTANT)
    TURN OFF ANY BACKGROUND APPLICATIONS

    Buy some X4 max dvd's
    They will allow you to burn at 1x or 2x.

    I see, well, if someone knows how to get it to 1-2x speed, then that would be nice.

    read more here: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/15/79846

    heres a quote:Ooohhh no, When burning with lesser quality media, you can not lower the burning speed (as low as 1X if necessary) in order to achieve a good burn.

    YOUR MEDIA HAS MORE TO DO WITH IT THAN YOU THINK.

    I see, I've been using verbatim dvd-r since I heard they worked. Guess I need to find something better, and at 4x.

    Verbatim is good.
    Just get some 4x max media.
    And save the 8x for movies.

    ALSO if you have a ps2 versions 1-4
    then get -r
    If you have a version 5 and up i would get +r
