hello all im a fairly new owner of a slim ps2 and have modded it using a flip top and i use swap magic 3.3 i burn using ritek g05 media. i typically read with dvd decrypter and burn with alcohol 120% at a max of 4x. any other methods ive used led to games with skips or unusually long load times. Anyway, the only game that has given me continuous trouble is GTA san andreas. ive probably made around 8 or 9 coasters trying different ways to burn it. ive burned at different speeds, tried reading and writing with alcohol, tried reading and writing with dvd decrypter and nothing works. i recently read a thread on here that offers the solution of using DVD+R instead or -R to burn this game. in the thread it talks about this working for V9 and above models of the ps2, but no mention if it works for the slim. anyway, im posting this for two reasons: 1) to let you all know about my experience in case there is someone out there with my same troubles, and the outcome of my burning on DVD+R 2) to receive any feedback i can in case burning with DVD-R doesnt work. i want to make a backup of this game so bad i can taste it, and every coaster i make frustrates the hell out of me. so any input on how i can acheive this would be much appreciated.
