That theory is still more matching to DVD5s, since the layers are already optimized to near as fast or faster, than the certified speed here (while in DVD5s case, it is normaly between 40 and 75% of certified disc-speed).

Without knowing that, he best I could suggest you is to buy a Verbatim, which is certified for lower speeds (2,4x), or to search for a firmware-upgrade.
Maybe your hardware is good enough to calibrate the laser-power exactly on this type of DVD, but misses the best settings in its DB, so it uses the defaults.
Same happens here with a bad burn I had (where it couldn´t even verify, or deny access to the medium and "Disc Read Error"/DRE showed-up, after some time).
When I try to play this, it appears that my PS2 cannot load the disc - fast, sort of clicking noise and I can hear the DVD spinning up and down, up and down...
I think that even the same happens, if I insert a Blank DVD.
I think you should retry it with newest DVD-writer-firmware, maybe an older type/or other brand of DVD-DL, if that doesn´t work.
Another thing which comes to my mind, but your version shouldn´t have problems with it.
Now DVD5 backups are just fine so I don't think it is a laser problem (or it possibly might be, don't know, that's why I ask). I have PS2 50004 series.
Thanks for any possible comments.
Anyway,... You can try to set the Booktype manually to DVD-ROM.
