    burn the games at a slow speed man, try 1x, 2x, dont go any faster, will either skip, or not work at all

    I never understood why burn at a slower speed, I burn at 8x on verbatim dvd-r, over 50 titles no problems. I've also used maxell with no problems.

    burning at the lowest speed just gives you better quality backups.
    Mine always burn at 3.8X with my Sony burner and the Phillips discs and they work every time. I set DVD Decrypter to 1X, but i guess either the burner or the discs cause it to burn at another speed. Since it always works i don't question it.
    As for the screen going red then black, are you using GOOD media to burn the games to? PS2's can be very picky about what type they like. Some like +R some like -R and some have no problem with either. Also must be quality media for the best results like TDK, Phillips,Ritek
