Default Reccomended DVDR media?

sponsored links

 
What type of media is reccomended?
It doesnt seem like my V4 ps2 can boot dvd-rws. It also doesnt like Ritec burnt at 2x which I thought was a guaranteed compatability.

Does + or - work better?

My V9 on the other hand does read and boot the DVDrs but I need to do more swaps on it and I dont like to do that. Dvdrws dont seem to boot with the swaps though.. weird


V4 PS2 is PirateStation2, V9 PS2 is my Playstation2

DVD-R for most v4 should work. Make sure you use high end medai like riteks and vervatims.

Your burner might be the cause too. What brand is it and how long have you had it? Ripping (backing up ) and burning does cause wear and tear. If I was you, I would try to get a plain DVD drive for ripping and use your DVD burner just for burning...less wear on the DVD burner laser.

I have a liteon 4x dvd +- rw burner.
I had burnt a Ritek DVD-R at 2x and it took about 5 minutes before the game started, and when it did it was LAGGY.. worked fine in my v9..
I was really surprised because my laser is less than 3 months old. and DVDs usually read okay.

I used DVD decryptor to rip and burn it. Yeah, I do have a seperate DVD reader in my computer..

DD is for decoding encoded dvd flicks, ps2 games are neither. Try Nero dvd copy instead.

incorrect handyguy, dvddecrypter has an iso read/write mode and it works flawlessly on any 4.7gb DVD (movie, ps2, etc)
