What diffrent brands of dvds work good with burning ps2 games
and DVD-R or DVD+R
THANKS A MILLION
BTW I currently use TDK DVD+R DVD Decrypter magic keys 2 Swap Magic 3.6 Bitcomet WINRAR Anything else I need? Also with TDK It Freezes in the opening and the laser gets stuck. I've only tried to burn one game and thats Narutimate Accel
I've been having trouble burning Narutimate Accel too. Let me know if you get it figured out (I'll PM you my email address).
i think earlier versions of ps2 only take -r, like for me, +R doesn't work so i have to use -R
In general it's usually better to use DVD-Rs when burning PS2 games because they have better compatibility across all PS2 versions. With better media you'll put less strain on the laser and will have higher success rates when burning. Also, it is important that your drives firmware is up-to-date. New versions add support for newer media and improve compatibility / burn quality with existing ones. Additionally, there's the new features and bug fixes you'd expect with any bit of software (which is basically what firmware is).
Taiyo Yuden DVD-Rs are considered to be some of the best among enthusiasts due to their high quality burns, low failure rates, and media longevity. They are also used by drive manufacturers and Sony PlayStation developers. Verbatim, Phillips, and Sony AccuCOREs (made in Japan) are also very good. You can purchase media from an online retailer such as http://www.supermediastore.com.
NOTE: These are general guidelines that seem to work best for most people, if you encounter better results with DVD+Rs/other media/Write speeds then by all means use what works best for you.
Is Taiyo Yuden 8x 4.7GB DVD-R Silver Thermal in Cake Box (100 pack)From Amazon.com something good. Here is a link to it http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...9764?_encoding=UTF8&m=A12M0K37EZSWC5&v=glance
