Exclamation Ps2 Wont Read DVD..... (are dvd-r worse than cd-rs on laser?)

sponsored links

After a few weeks of getting my DVD Burner are trying to solely playing DVD-R games on General Silver-Top Ritek 2x DVD-Rs. I burt the discs at 1x and loaded them up useing the dvd swap magic disc. I tried booting up Yu-Gi-OH Duelist of the Roses for the first time. The dvd swap magic loaded up. I swapped w/ DVD-R and it got a pink border. I tried using the gs double swap method. GS 2.0 loaded up but when i went to do the double swap the origanl dvd was still spinning. I tried it again but w/o the double swap. Just load GS and load an orig****. It froze. I tried load an orig**** directly and after about 5min of spinning it says disc read error. My question is are DVD-R Backups worse than CD-R on the laser?

They are better for the laser, but cheap-o $ony has made some really crappy lasers. I burnt one laser by ejecting a dvd while the disc was still spinning, don't know you might have killed your laser.
