does anyone own a PS2 Version 4 with the 35001 model #???
any problems on rading dvd+r disks?
try to use ridata dvd-r. i have a v4 and have backed up 20+ games with that.
has anyone successfully burned san andreas on a dvd - r ? or should i be using +r?
PS2 Version 5 and up can only read +R media. 1 through to 4 can only use -R.
burned gta san andreas with dvd-r discs successfully.
Gozilla, thats not true.
I have a version 4 and it only reads +r's.
it ONLY reads +r?? can it read -r?
Your Model number is different than mine, and I have read that some PS2 v4s read both, some do not. So you will have to test it out on yours.
gozilla, you couldnt be more wrong:
i have a v5 ps2 with a messiah mod and all my backed up games are on dvd-r... and work 100% perfectly!!!
you may have a point that older machines only read -r but the majority of the new ones read both + and - formats in both r and rw...
to dg3elite, it is quite possible that your v4 has an incompatibility with +r disks...
the simple solution? experiment with -r media and see if you can get it to work...
if not, look at upgrading your chip (as this may limit your machine to certain disks, i.e. only cdr and not any dvd format) or look at upgrading ur ps2 to a newer version that will read +/-r disks
good luck... post back if your have any more queries
my apologies, i meant to say that only the V5 and up can read BOTH +R and -R media. the V3 cannot read +R at all, and i'm sure the V4 cannot either as it is very similar to the V3.
