    I have a flip-top and I used Sony DVD-R which worked and Verbatim DVD-R which worked also. I also have a version 4 PS2.

    I have a V4 system and your right about there being two different versions(Gap/No Gap). I believe the only way to find out is to actually open up your system and take a look at your board. There are diagrams on the web as far as mod installation that should help you find out excactly what your system board is. And to answer your question regarding does V4 play DVD-R and CD-R. Yes. As far as DVD+R, only some do and some dont so its a matter of trial and error. I would just use DVD-R to play it safe but its up to you. Here, I found a link of some pictures of a gap and no gap: http://www.chipzone.com/motherboards/v4gap.cfm

    Yes, the only way to tell if you have a gap or no gap is to pull it completely apart and look. The mod chips for the v4 machines work regardless of the gap or not and shouldn't be a factor in determining which mod to get. When you go to install simply check which one you have and use the appropriate diagram.
