    To all the expert out there,

    I'm starting to see movie and music skipping situation in my PS2 DVD Backups. Worse case is, sometimes the movie just hung and the whole game hung.

    I have burnt a lot of PS2 DVD backups, and have never had these problems before.

    Have anyone experienced similiar problem? What are the possible causes of these problems? My PS2? My DVD Burner?

    Any helps & advices are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    For your reference:
    DVD Media : Mitsui, Ritek
    DVD Burner: Pioneer 104
    PS2 v5

    What Blank Media are you using? Could be the problem if its just your backups that are the problem

    I have experienced the same problem (using Ritek G04 DVD-R's) on a few games (GTA Vice City as an example). I cleaned the laser VERY CAREFULLY and it fixed this problem. I would attempt this and hope it solves the problem. Good Luck!

    That's all the suggestions. I would try to clean the lens, hopefully, it will solve the problem.

    interesting...I have been using Ritek G04's for some time now and others have told me to stick with those...I might get a few mitsui when I get the chance to try those out. I'm always up for new things.

    Hi Guys,

    I tried to clean and adjust the laser (by turning the white gear). It does not seem to solve the problem. My old backups are still working properly, only the recent backups had the problem.

    Can this potentially my burner problem?

    are you still burning at the same speed and using the same overall method to burn the games? If you have changed any step along the way, I would revert back to the steps that you were taking when you were making the backups that are still working. Also, I might try to lower the burning speed just to see if that makes a difference.

    I would have to say that I do not think that it is your burner. It might be, but there is a greater chance that it is either the process used, or maybe just a bad batch of dvd-r's. Good luck!

    I have the exact same problem with my back-ups and SMD. I cleaned and adjusted my laser ( white gear method) and it seemed to help. The same backups that would hang and skip throughout the movies now run smoother.
    I was told that the cause of this is playing burnt games and movies, apparently the shiny surface of the blank dvd's (no matter what the brand) forces the laser to work harder to read the dvd. The only suggestion i have is to clean the laser or try adjusting it with the gear method.
