    I have a modded ps2 with magic 3 in it.
    I also have a brand new BenQ DW 1610.
    What should I use for burning my backup?
    I tried using Dvd - rw and dvd - r but still no success. Can someone plz help?

    I burnt San Andreas, tried to play it on my ps2 and it did not work it just took me to the screen where it shows you options to go to the browser or system settings.
    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    I tried this with one of my son's games to see if the programs work and had some trouble. I went to Mode, ISO, Read and copied it to the hdd. Took 1 hour, 22 minutes! Then went to Mode, ISO, write and the sucker got to 98% burn (after more than 1 hour) and I got an I/O error message. Wish I had written down the error, but I was ticked off at wasting 2 1/2 hours and getting an error message. May have been the media I was using (TDK, DVD+R), but why did it get to 98% before failing?

    I wonder why it took so long to read the game. What kinda burner was it?? Even though it burned only 98%, u still could play the game. Happened to to my conflict vietnam. It burned 95%, but the game is still playable.

    I have a LiteOn external burner - USB 2.0. I was using Verbatim DataLife Plus dvd-r. Not sure why it took so long to read and write.

    i have a dvd burner (stock one that came on Dell computer), but it only burns dvd+r, not dvd-r. i was wondering if anybody knew for sure that games CAN be backed up on dvd+r or if they MUST be burned onto dvd-r's. thanks so much.

    would it matter what company the dvd is made by?
    ex. Maxell, Sony, Memorex, Mitsumi, etc.

    me i use memorex most of the time cause its real cheap but some backups dont work great with the memorex so then i use maxell thats what i do anyways and i allways burn at 2.4x with dvd decrypter

    Does anyone suggest a certain DVD-R for a PS2 V4 Mod chip? I have Magic 3 Version 3.3, and currently I'm using some Imation DVD-R I got for xmas, and my PS2 states that it doesn't recognize it.
