    Don't use DVD-R, they are not as good as DVD+R's. Another reason might be the DVD's. What type do you have?

    Where did you hear that Jsheppard? The version of PS2 you have determines what media you can use. Versions 3 and down cannot read DVD+R's, some v4's can, versions 5 and above can read both DVD+R and DVD-R. If your having problems loading the game, you may want to check what company makes your media, because those companies that make cheap media may be the reason why.

    Do a search for a program called DVD Identifier. It will let you know if the media you are using is good or not and who it is made by.

    there is no point in buying x 8 speed
    you should not burn faster than x2 anyway
    gta san andreas should be burn on x1

    get some dvd+r though
