[B]a fair chunk of my PS2 Cdr (I have ~300) are over 630MB and swap magic 2.0 CD for booting CDr WON'T boot them - it's pretty poor for CDr.

THe DVDr boot CD is pretty good though - boots everything I have except Britney Dance Beat...

So - I think u'll be dissapointed if u buy it for CDr...... [/B]
I also got version 2.0 and it [b]does not[/b] boot cdr games that are over [b]630mb[/b]. But why buy cd, when you can always have DVD. It even sounds cooler...DVD.

For those of you wondering why it is worth gettin a dvd burner true there is the cost but dvds will allow you to fit full version games on every disc and cd results haven't been the best. The other reason is that quite a few people have destroyed thier lasers in thier PS2s because rips are hard on the laser.

I hold down the eject button until it turns orange and I swap the disk and push x! and what happens is I get a pink border around the starfield background..and it doesn't BOOT. I can boot up normal originals games like normal..but backups won't you know what is the problem?
