DVD-R Media PS2 Tests - Finding Best PS2 Media
DVD-R Media PS2 Tests - Finding Best PS2 Media –
Okay, i'd be nice for everyone to post their experiences with different types of media on their PS2s. It would probably help most of us finding the right media. Here are my test results:
With a Pioneer A05, a V7 Ps2, Messiah 2 PRO, using Alchool 120%
Princo 1x -> I've had some luck with these. Most work except for the ones that are like above ~4.1 gigs... Ie, The getaway, and Time Splitters 2... Ratchet and clank worked, tekken 4, vice city, all works fine with Princos
Princo 1x DVD-RW -> Same results as above.
Legacy 1x -> Don't even bother. None of 'em worked.
Pioneer 4x (the one that came with the burner) -> Tried with 1 game (NHL 2k3) and it works fine.
Verbatims -> only 1 worked, (007 Nightfire), the other 4 i got didn't at all.
Mitsui 1x (i think) -> Put Gran Turismo 3 on it and it worked fine.
That's it for now. I'm off to go buy some Riteks... hopefully they'll be the last type i try.
Like i said, post your experiences so others don't have to go through all the bs.
I have burned about 120 dvd-r ritek G04.
All works very good in
v3 v4 v5 v7 ( with messiah and messiah 2)
No skipping videos and good time loadings
That reported from my costomers.
Ritek g04 is the best
second is ritek g03
Pioneer A05 / Nero / RecordNow MAX
Maxell - 50% cannot be read by PS2
Ritek G03 - Works like a charm, so far no coaster
Maxell using A04 - 20% didn't work on PS2
verbatim didnt work for you?
must be a bad burn... trust me these are all i use for dvd games (25 & counting ) and not one has ever caused me a problem
i also tried some CMC media, (unbranded silver top) worked sorta good, but loading times are worse than on a verbatim dvd-rw so i dont think they would be the best choice
I hear ppl saying Princo is bad, how is it bad?
'cause I've tried a couple of them and they seem to work fine, it reads ok and loads alright.
Princo is good only if your laser is " brand new ".
with weeks laser then is s**t
Ritek g04 –
I use Ritek G04 on my A05 buring at 4x and they work without any problems. Even good ol' Vice City works fine. I'd go with those. You can get them here:
just click the CD/DVD Media link to the left. The G04 should be the 7 heading down.
I put them side by side with the TDKs and they are the same dark purple color on the bottom. They even play just as well. No slow loading times or skips.
Pioneer 4x: Came with my burner, burned ZOE2 with it. Works perfectly.
TDK 4x: Bought one of these and used it to burn Madden 2003. Again, works perfectly. No problems here.
I'd buy either of these in bulk if they weren't so expensive and I hadn't just gotten 50 esbuy Riteks.
i'll add my contribution , but so far i've already read was i was gonna write
simple , the Ritek G4 are the best : works like a charm in V3/4/5/6/7 , and work even better than original DVD : a friend of mine has a PS2 that can no longer read video DVD and PS2 DVD based game . we tried a lot of DVD-R backup on this faulty PS2 : only the Ritek G4 work , with about 90% sucessfull booting , and no skipping when in game !
so , in my humble opinion , those are really the best for any PS2 out there .
Pioneer A05 / DiscJuggler / Alcohol 120% / PrimoDVD 2.0
Apple - 100% - 10000/15000, v1, v2, v4, v5, v7
Also I wondering about Optodisc? Did someone tried it?
