DVD-R's Skipping PLZ Help
DVD-R's Skipping PLZ Help –
I just recieved my Pioneer 104 and have burned FFX, Max Payne, Test Drive. FFX works great but Max Payne skips on movies and stops loading at different points each time, once at new game, or at movie loading. Test Drive screen will freeze for a split second while racing and continue and freeze for a split second again. Ive cleaned laser with CD and did not help? This is what im using:
NTSC v5 (Magic II)
Mitsui 2x Gold @ 1x
Using Nero to Copy
Maybe i should try Verbatim but Go-Kun insists Mitsui is the best!All help and suggestions welcome and very much appreciated, THNX!!!
The Mitsui discs should work ok, but I'd suggest using PrimoDVD or RecordNow Max instead of Nero and burn at 2x rather than 1x.
I use a Pioneer DVR-A03 with Apple discs (OEMed Verbatims) at 2x with PrimoDVD and the 320 rev of the Px engine update. I've never had a problem at 2x, but burning at 1x did cause problems similar to the ones you describe. Seems both my v1 and v4 PS2s prefer the faster burns and read better compared to 1x burns.
If nothing else, try another burn at 2x (if Nero allows it, otherwise, get PrimoDVD or RecordNow Max. (You can get a trial version of RecordNow Max from the Veritas website.)
thnx for the reply balto, i get a shutdown error when i try to burn in primodvd but only with games larger than the 2 gb limit, i updated px engine already and saem thing, ill try recordnow max and let ya know
Burned with record Now Max @2x, and worked flawlessly, thnx again Balto
Great! Happy gaming. eh?
BTW, I've heard other folks having similar problems and for grins, you may want to totally uninstall PrimoDVD and reload it (along with the Px engine update) when that trial copy expires. Seems when they re-installed, the errors disappeared...
Just deleted it off my HD Record Now Max works great, no need for prassi, thnx for all the advice
