PS2 DVD-R's have choppy movies? Could it be caused by my .ISO?
PS2 DVD-R's have choppy movies? Could it be caused by my .ISO? –
Ok, I'm starting to narrow down what my problem is. I've tried several different kinds of media (Ritek G04 DVD-R, TDK DVD+R 4X, TDK DVD-R 2X, Taiyo Yuden DVD+R) on my BRAND NEW V9 PS2.
...and all of them have VERY VERY choppy movies when playing Ratchet and Clank, and somewhat choppy movies with Final Fantasy X-2.
Now I've been burning all of these from the same .ISO image. I didn't create the image myself so I'm not sure what speed the disc was originally read at.
So here is my question--- When backing up a PS2 game, does the READING SPEED make a difference for FMVs?
For example, lets say my DVD-ROM drive could read at 16X. Now suppose I make an .ISO image of Rachet and Clank reading at a speed of 8x. If I now burn this newly created image even at 2X, am I still subject to incredibly choppy FMVs?
This leads to my second question--- What causes choppy FMVs on the PS2?
No reading speed has no effect on the FMV's (ISO) quality. Except if there is a big hardware problem (I mean bad cable, bad memory, etc, etc whihc may cuase pops and clicks, and so on) Anyway, the disks you use seem to be fine. I suggest you to write the iso with another writer if you have access to another one. You might also want to check if the release was not nuked by some reason, for example a bad pack/etc. (not probable anyway)
Any other ideas why I'm having so many problems with my games?
what software are u using to burn with? try dvd decrypter if you aren't using it.
I've tried many different programs but primarily I used RecordNow, but I also have used DVD Decrypter and Alcohol 120%.
My burner is a LiteOn LDW-851S.
either its cheap disks or a dodgy laser.
Lite-On... phew, why do you not get a decent writer ? I sold my Lite-On 451 as it created disks that my PS2s and Xbox do not really liked that much. My old Pioneer 104 and the new Pioneer 107 create perfect disks...
pS: also you can check the writer's firmware... sometimes that used to help (a bit)
uns97 sounds right, I have a Pioneer A05 that makes perfect discs, go with quality, not price.
