    you should try a dvd+r movie backup and see if your ps2 picks it up. cuz i used to have a v4 that played both +/-R media. To Fix Your Problem i suggest you buy a dual format burner, like that you can burn both type of medias

    Yeah I'm with you on the Dual Format DVD burner, mine burns both and I love it. You could also try www.clearxbox.com for your Swap Disc needs. I got the white bottom, white fliptop case (which if you're buyig the Swap Discs, you should get that too.), and the Swap Magic Discs for about $40. I ordered from their site on a Sunday night and had it in my hands by that Friday.

    No. Dual Layer is a DVD format tha allows you to burn ove 4.7GB. Dual Format is what you meant. This means your DVD burner can burn either DVD+R or DVD-R. As for gettting a flip top case with discs, check out www.gocybershopping.com It comes to about $44 USD shipped. As for brand of DVD-R, I reccomend either Ritek G04's, or TYG02. Ritek G05's are too unreliable.

    I use TDK 2x DVD-R burned at 2x. I've never had a problem. I have had problems with the Ritek 8x DVD-R (Ritek G05).

    fujifilm is my personal favorite. they are always manufactured by ricoh, tayo yuden, or MCC. riteks are good, but watch out for fakes. newegg.com is a safe place to buy from

    i buy nothing but ritek g05's....hundreds of them. i always check shop4tech, newegg, and meritline. newegg if you need em fast. sometimes shop4techs come packaged strangely (ordered 500 and got 20 packs of 25) but all 3 have never given me a bad time. recently i have discovered that the memorex dvd-r 8x cool colors at walmart are high quality g05's. 14.88 for 30. not bad.
