black cd-r's –
A stupid question. Are black cdr's such as memorex good for ps2 cd based games ? Does black tell the ps2 that it is a cd based game? Does recording ps2 cd games on silver media hurt the lasers based on the" is it a cdr or dvdr" discussion?
black CD-r does not make to much sense. They may help on very old Playstations (SCPH-100x).
No Silver media does not hurt the laser, but keep in mind that the PS2 drive is not the highest quality and tend to problems, specially with DVD-movies. Also the Neo 2.0 (2) may make problems when you hear the laser working hard (if you don´t use the capacitor).
Hope it helps
The best reflectivity for CD-R/DVDR, and that is the issue for the laser, is with silver/gold bottomed media.
Pressed CDs (including black) have guaranteed optical qualities that are not assured on black CD-Rs. So my advice is to avoid them.
black CDs –
In my experience, which consists of a single purchase of a 5-pak of memorex BLACK-CDRs, black cdrs are perhaps the very WORST type of CD-r available on the market. For a second I thought I had a CDR drive problem, because it refused to burn when I first tried them... then I realized that, wow, the CDBurner is actually refusing to even acknowledge that a CD was in the drive, much less a WRITABLE one. After a few tries and a switch to another burner, I was finally able to burn something- so I tested it with my one buddy's DJmix session he has just recorded. Little did I know that while these pathetic excuses for CD media DID look kinda cool, they adamently refused to even play in a CAR CD PLAYER Head-unit... usually headunits will play damn near anything you put in em, and without skipping either. But noooo, not these... when I took the ****ing "vapor-media" out of the cd player, I realized that it was no wonder that absolutly no type of CD reader in existance seemed to be able to read them; their "pretty" little black bottoms look exactly the same whether they are burned or blank. No visible grooves, nothing to designate a blank from a used CD in a pinch. Though I suppose it really doesn't matter, since neither a burned nor a blank black CDR ever managed to be recognized as viable media. F*&K memorex and their "cash-in" black bottom crap. They do make a pretty good DVD-R, tho'
they r the same as other cdrs just better quality
came across some black cdr's the other day, but thought i'd do abit of reasearch on them first.
Thank god for the SEARCH button...
