    I've been wanting to know if getting dust/eyelash/etc on a DVD+R before burning a PS2 game onto it will effect gameplay. Especially, will it hurt my PS2 by stressing it to read past these areas? It leaves the area where the particle was with an "imprint" of whatever was there. Permanently, it happened to me. Will Ugly Media Hurt My PS2/lens Eventually, even scratched/dirty media(more common) such as rentals? THANKS for any info you may know

    The dirt, scratches , bad media all add up in lowering liife of the laser
    Thus harming ur PS2
    Yes it will affect ur game play
    The game will not work perfectly
    And the DVD will run with lot of voice
    As laser would hav prooblem in reading it
    Thus will hurt ur laser and later u may hav problems playin games
    Hope it helps

    only the newer ps2's will read +r media, that's probably why you've had luck with the -r's. As the old saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it..heh

    OAKside24, why would you rent the game when you can just use your orginal?
