    get the memorex dual x format dvd burner. i have it and i have been making backups and it works great, and it does all formats and it really good for everything else u wanna burn (and its cheap)
    or just wait a while and buy a multi layer dvd burner

    why not go for the plextor?... they offer the 8x burner already.... and philips already making 8x dvd+r... or you can wait till pioneer makes the a07/107... with the dvdram support and the 8x dvd-r and 8x dvd+r...

    hey.. I've never seen anyone talk about hp dvd writers... why?? I got one for christmas.. It may be expensive... but damn it's so good.. I backup my games in 20-40 minutes and they all work fine. Is it just because of the cost of the writer that I see no one talk about it?

    they dont even make the 8x media yet, and you are suppost to burn ps2 games at 1x ok if u do at 2.4x but it u did it at 8x the game may skip. its not worth the extra money

    if the ps2 can read 4x it will read 8x... it's not a matter of how much the burner cost... is it's a matter how good it is... sometimes the burner is crap and cost alot...

    sice theres no one who make 8x dvd's i cant prove my piont... BUT that dont mean i cant prove that ps2 read 4x.... my OLDER ps2 was 30004 it DID read 1x 2x AND 4x... i did 3 backups on 4x... it was gta3... the getaway... and FFX... they ALL run nice no skips no nothing for 2 years.. they run quite good the ps2 didnt complain...

    now i got me 39004... it STILL read 4x dvd-rs no skips no nothing... i admit SOME games dont run at 4x and DO skip... BUT... most of them run quite good... same as the original...

    i will just backup mine at a slow speed cuz i am in no hurry. the reason i asked that is because i know some one who has a ps2 i am not surr which version but i know its v4 and up and it didnt play +r only -r could it be that some of the higher version can only play - ?
