    I have the same NEC burner as you, I use Maxell- I have had success with + and - media.

    You need DVD Decrypter
    http://www.dvddecrypter.com/

    and Nero burning rom trial edition.
    http://ww2.nero.com/us/nero6-ultraedition.php
    (You just need nero installed, you will use DVD Decrypter to burn also)

    Insert disk; open DVD decrypter
    Go to MODE>ISO>READ
    wait for it to copy to your hd
    then..MODE>ISO>WRITE
    (select the .iso file that you just copied)

    This method works for most games, I usually do a search for the game on these forums before I burn, so you can tell if it's a rare game that needs patched or something before burning.

    There are other programs that work also, but I have had good success with this setup. Hope this helps a little

    Thanx for the fast reply, I'm going to try the memorex DVD's. Is the Nec2510A a bit reliable? Does it burn many brands? And what about the V9 does it 'swallow' many brands?

    -=Flip Top + SMD V3.3 coming tomorrow :D =-

    The NEC is great. I have absolutely no complaints. I've probably burnt 500 dvd's with it so far and have had relatively no problems using any brand media.

    For games, all I can say is stay away from the cheap stuff (I started out with Teon brand dvd-r's, which work great for movies, but suck with games).

    Just experiment a little with media to find what your ps2 likes.
