    I have LG CD writer. I bought some copied games and It works on my PS2 with MAGIC 3 mod chip. But when I copy those games, It own't work. Someone tell me If I am doing something wrong. I followed example from website and It copied perfectly.
    I waste my CDs like tissue paper.

    if your copying cd based games, then from what I understand it doesn't matter what burner you have. However the program does matter. Nero and clone cd work well. If its a dvd based game, you need a dvd burner(which I'm sure you already knew) IN that case, I hear that some dvd burners won't copy games well.

    Just now, I burned my CD from my Sister's burner (SONY) and it worked!
    and I tried again on my burner (LG) but it didn't work. Man.. I am confused.

    Yes, I did the same benchmark test and I doesn't work. Today I went out to buy new burner (MSI) and it worked. It seems fine.

    Strange !
    So you threw the LG writer away, along with the carbage !?! :-(
    It's a good thing they are very cheap now.

    I am glad it works now !

    hahahah :)
    no, I kept the old LG too.
    It has no problem burning different kinds of cds. But I threw out the SONY DVD rom, the thing broke down on me and I only used it for a year.
