    What media is the BEST for backing up?

    Reason being is I have used verbaitum for 2 games so far. Nfl 2k5, and metal gear 3. Both have had issues. Burned them with decrypter at 1x speed. 2k5 gets choppy with announcer commentary turned on during franchise mode. And snake eater froze once while eating a pyton causing my v12 ps2's laser to act like it was stuck, making all kind of noise. BTW using SM V3.3. I have a feeling it is the media's fault and want your take on it. Media code is: MCC 01RG20 dvd-r

    Well, i use verbatim 4x and it works perfectly, i have heard people say that riteks (GO4 dye) are good so maybe try that. Hope that helps

    I have an NEC 3520a Drive with a modified firmware (1.u9). Could this modified firmware be casuing my problem? I have burned movies flawlessly with this burner and media combo for months now and am shocked to have problems with console backups. I am looking to point fingers so I can fix. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
