burning RIDATA DVD+R –
I burn REO2 on a DVD+R X4 at X2.6 speed. My PS2 V3 model won't read it , anyone can tell if these media are good?
Try to find out what the media code your discs are. For Ridata 4x DVD+R, they may be RICOHJPNR01, RITEK R02 , RITEK R03. You can review their ratings on videohelp.com under DVD media.
As a side note, older model PS2 consoles tend to like DVD-R media better than DVD+R media. A popular DVD-R disc is the Ritek G04.
Yup, although if he sets the booktype on the discs to DVD-ROM they could work. I agree though that if they are anything but the Ricoh code that they aren't worth bothering with.
The media code is RITEK r02 and the console reliability is mixed, one vote goo and one vote bad. It's the first time a make a backup so i can't say what is the origin of the problem.
I burn the game with NERO and the burner is from my toshiba staellite laptop, its said that the iso have to be burnt on mode 2XA, but i couldn't change the mode and had to burn it on mode 1. Do you think that is the problem? Does REO2 have some sort of protection?

I find DVD-Decrypter is the easiest to use and most reliable when backing up games. Look for the latest version of DVD-Decrypter. It's freeware although the author won't be updating it anymore due to legal reasons.
Try using DVD-R media if you can. As FIRED mentioned if your DVD burner allows you to change booktype to DVD-ROM, then the DVD+R media may be OK, but you will have to check if your Toshiba burner allows that. Not all burners are able to.
Also try burning at a slow speed like 1x.
Before i read your post, joj_jon, i tried ddv decrypter and it crashed during burning with this error "I/O Error, Illegal mode for this track" . What do you think about it ? Besides, i'm sorry but i don't know what is the "booktype" , my dvd burner is matsushita, where can i change this booktype, is it on the the burning software like nero and dvd decrypter or in the control panel of the hardware device?
To my knowledge Panasonics don't have the option to set the booktype to DVD-ROM, so if I were you I would try and pitch the rest of what you have on ebay and buy some quality -R discs. Panasonics as a whole do seem to prefer -R anyways.
I burned a disc on alcohol 120%, and set booktype to dvd-rom.Still not working.My PS is the first model in Europe so i guess it won't read dvd+r.
Just a quick question: does your PS2 work with ANY DVD based backup at all ? Isn't its laser already gone ? Not to mention Ridata + disks are as far as I know is Ritek based, so far from the best ones into the "+" area. Anyway all DVD based stuff is in Mode 1. And yes, V3 has issues with +R media, try some DVD-R though I'd be no surprised if your laser was already dead.
I don't think it's the laser, the problem is that it is my first backup, i never played dvd backups on this console, i just tried cd and it works, original dvd works too. The ridata dvd+r are ritekg02, i'll try t-o grab some cheap dvd-r on ebay and try.Do you think Fortis (sony) dvd-r will work?
