CD backups making noise
CD backups making noise –
I've noticed that the games I've backed up on CD make ALOT more noise when booting then my DVD backups. Should I just ignore these noises or are they indicating that wear and tear is being put on my laser? Should I try using a different media? (I'm using Memorex and Verbatrim now) Also, can a CD game be backed up onto a DVD-R? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
You should try comparing it to CD originals as well, it may very well be that CD's have aharder time then DVDs, meaning that the laser is dying/weaking and the drive is having problems with CDs
cd spin a lot faster than dvd so its natural for them to make a lot more noise, they do put more wear & tear because of this, there is a program around that allows you to backup cds to dvd I cant remember the name of it at the moment but will try to find for you
Hey, here's a suggestion - try taking apart your cd drive, pop the spindel out of the top and place it directly on the buttom half of the spindle with a cd on it - let it load - sometimes the magnets don't grab tight enough and it causes the cd to lose grip - taking the top spindle out of the lid allows it to make the best contact with the other half - worked for me

Thanks everyone for your help, I really appreciate it. If you could find me the name of that program Dungbeetle I'd be eternally grateful, that would be the best solution to my problem. I don't have much experience opening up my PS2, but if it comes down to it I'll take Rustmonkey's advice. Thanks again for everything.
Every PS2 I have ever owned/used has been louder and slower reading CDs than DVDs. I beleive it's normal.
Thanks a million Dungbeetle! I hate to ask anymore of you, but which file do I need to scan?
Forget my last post, got it figured out. Thanks!!!
