I got a frustrating problem. I first used Apple Media 4x DVD-R. I have a Pioneer DVR-106D with a 1.08 firmware update. I would burn my PS2 Backups no problem, DVD Backups no problem. Once I ran out I went to Sam's Club and bought a 100 pack of Verbatim DVD-R 8X, and when I burn my DVD backups it works but sometimes lags. On my PS2, it doesn't even play at all. I have Magic Swap v3.3, and have a V.9 PS2. So if my DVD player reads them and my PS2 doesn't, could it be the media??? could it be the program? I used to be able to burn the Apple DVD-R at 4x and it was still perfect, I tried to burn the Verbatim's at 1x and it was still a problem. My Prog of choice is DVD Decrypter then I used Nero, still the same results.
