    Hey guys,

    Glad to be part of another community, I hope to participate in some great discussions with all of you.

    Since many of you have more experience with PS2 backups, I have a question:

    I have a choice on which DVD media to get. What would you guys suggest for the Slim PS2? DVD+R or DVD-R?

    Secondly, would you guys recommend TDK or Phillips DVDs? Or would you say that they are both equally good quality?

    Thanks guys!

    --Hank

    i recommend dvd-r, not sure which ones but some ps2 doesnt accept +r.
    i have a slim pstwo and i think these dvds are the best. never had one problem.

    if you havent made a backup before there are loads of help on this forum, its how i found out how to do it.
    and make sure you download dvd decrypter.

    I am also wondering about Philips DVD-Rs and if they are any good.
    Found this on my searches around this forum:
    "MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)
    TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)"

    Ah here is a thread about this:

    i dont usually like to complain... and i realise you are new here but if you look through this forum you will see that the question of what media to use has been mentioned hundreds of times. a simple browse through would give you a good idea of what is and isnt good to use for backups.

    thats all i wanted to say :)
