dvd+r or -r?
it depends on which version ps2. -r for older ones, +r for new ones.
u have to try both, to see which works best for ur ps2.
i got my playstation 2 16th september 2002 should i use dvd+ or DVD-
mine is a v7 that I got in DEC 2002 so I assume you should also use -r
usually versions > 4 read +r, but there are exceptions. Mine is a ver. 7 and doesn't read +r
versions below 4 will NOT read dvd+r.you need dvd-r
all versions should read dvd-r
v5 and above can use both dvd+r dvd-r(ocassionaly v4 can read dvd+r,if your lucky)
you may find games which are constantly reading data off the disc,work better on dvd+r,but this is for v5 above
its all a matter of choice,if you use GOOD quality media nobody should have any problems.
the date you bought your ps2 doesnt determine what version your ps2 is???the console could have been collecting dust for months.

hi guys i'm new at this so i do aplogise if i have repeated any questions. I would like to know if bulqpak 4x dvd-r is any good for ps2 games and has any one ever succesfully copied a game using roxio 7 or can it just not be done.
( i have posted this question but i think it was in the wrong forum )
I haven't heard of that media myself.
Try using 'Dvd Decrypter' for you dvd-based game burning. You can d/l it free on this site.
i have dvd decrypter but was getting the lock volume error message ( i now know that this is because of my other sofware ) I know that there are better makes of dvd-r but would this really make a difference which one i use.
Also if my backup movies are jumping slightly could this be because of my burning software, the discs i use or the rewriter itself
