Okay, I'm kinda sick of seeing all these problem threads when they can be solved by buring at 1x. This is just me being lazy as I can't be pissed to post in all threads. I hope someone makes this a sticky. Anyway here are some solutions for problems with booting or playing back-ups:- 1. Make sure your modchip is installed properly. Pay the extra money for a professional install. It's worth it. Otherwise, you may find that your PS2 is now a toaster that doesn't work.... 2. Always burn at 1x. Sometimes if you burn at 2x or 3x even, the back ups may not work. So burn at 1x. Afterall, if you're not pirating games and selling them, a couple of days won't hurt (that much)... 3. Use reliable media. Don't use some brand named "Unreliable DVD-Rs". Feel free to add more suggestions and I'll edit the thread when I think of some more.
