Default any problems in copying from crap media to good media?

sponsored links

i have a PS2 dvd-r game thats burned on cheap media and doesnt boot up every time.

if i were to copy it onto a better dvd-r, say Verbatim, would that solve the problem of first time booting?

has anyone tried this?

i dont think there will be any problems as long as all the data is in tact.

Not 100% sure, tho, may want a second opinion

Well I don't know about the PS2 but I do this with my XBOX games all of the time. I transfer them from crappy Princo media to Ritek media and there is A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE in how they function. I'm almost 100% sure the same holds true for the PS2. As long as the "original" DVD-R is readable by your computer's DVD-ROM drive it shouldn't be any problem at all. *EDIT* BTW my Princos do the exact same thing that you described (not booting everytime) but my Riteks and Fujifilm re-burns work 100%.

thanks guys,

as long as you've tried it before and it works, then i'm happy. if it works for the xbox then i'm sure it'll work for the ps2 aswell.

I've tried it many times. I got many cheap princo disc, some with scatches and won't boot up. Burn it to Ritek and it should work better. As long as the data is there, then it's fine. The data is untouch when u transfer it from one dvdr to the next, the PS2 laser has to read from the disc's surface to extract the data, it it's mostly depend on the media.

Yep for PS2 X-Box the darker dye discs such as Ritek and Prodisc are much better for the laser to read.

Moving to the NEW media forum for you......
