    hey guys, whats realllly goooodd!!

    anyways, i was wondering what brand name for blank DVD R'S is out there that is really recommended to burn/backup PS2 games and DVD movies. I should hopefully be recieving a dvd burner along with the PS2 fliptop in these following weeks and i wanna get started with this crap, im tired of reading and reading (forums), i just wanna DO IT, DO IT! could you guys help me out.

    Um, i heard theres blank dvd r's that are blue on the bottom (just like the original ps2 games) are those significant for backing up ps2 games correctly......

    COOL , IM OUT GUYS,
    GOOD GAME BI%$CHES

    OK guys cool your horses, ive read around and it seems people like riteks here, i just wanna know if someone has a different approach with dvd media other than riteks thats all,

    I was seeing people get bashed for asking questions that were already answered in the archives, thats why im explaining myself to get opinions from people who have other experiences with dvd r's other than ritek..............

    whewwwww (wipes sweat)

    **i like getting burned anyways ;), works the blood**

    if you don't want to use ritek g04 dvd-r then would suggest you consider verbitam datalife plus or tdk

    I've typically used Princo disks, and although they're not exactly popular, they seem to work the best for me. I suggest once you find a brand that works, stick with it. I tried ritek g04 and I've only had problems with them, but then I am one of the very few with ritek issues possibly stemming from incompatibility issues with my dvd burner.

    he he he. I dont know what the big deal is with Ritek. I use tdk.
    http://www.tdk-europe.com/index.php?id=34&WYSESSID=nu3ctvbjciu43ltmpa0v1svu60

    They are perhaps more expensive?? (I get mine for $2 each now!) and harder to come by, but theyre freakin excelent. vey stable, very reliable. Never had a coaster due to a bad disc... whereas with ritek..... not so lucky. few duds her eand there :(

    I also use them for movie backups and dvd authoring. The only other brand I really like are verbatim, whose reputation for stability is beyond doubt :D
