this writer burns games for my 360 so its not rubbish and my 360 is very picky with media it only allows verbatim because its a hitachi drive,
For example: I wrote the example in FAT just to explain how things happen to be and how things could happen. Also I said to use a dvd-writer which can not even burn faster than 4x, since this example doesn't apply as much on those DVD-Writers which are allready able to write 8x and dual-layer-DVD-Rs.
It is a photo-chemical process. Keep that in mind,... A DVD+/-R is like a film in an old analog camera.
The 'shutter' (in a camera) also couldn't be opened to long, since the picture would be too much lighted otherwise...
Well, the prime-suspect are still your discs.
but for arguments sake i burned using my pc burner and this has also failed to work i tried both at 4x and that aws setting you suggested and both disks did not boot.
Why are you even feeding your PS2, which will ever be pickier than any XBOX you get, with crap-DVDs?
On a PS2 you should only use 'First-Class-DVD-Media', because if you don't your laser will RIP, in a relative short time...
I NEVER SAID you should burn a disc on 4 or lower with your current DVD-Writer. :crazy:
I cannot go slower than 4x my speeds are 4x,8x,16x if i were to set it lower it was say error and give me the lowest possible speed which is 4x.
It was an example to reiterate how the stuff technically and physically works.
I only posted it to explain you how your problems can occur.
It depends... A few of them already have a KHS-400C, but you probably got a KHS-400B-Version.
I also checked out my ps2 info and it says its a scph 30004, which i think has a crap laser.
Well, you can do some stuff...
-cleaning all lenses and mirrors
-adjusting laser-power (or better said 'adjusting pots')
...but this PS2-Version needs quality-media for sure and burned in the right way, with almost no errors and the DVD-dye must have a high reflectivity after burning (for example you should know that allready from Verbatim. Those are almost golden if your burner uses the correct laser-power and speed.).
Btw.: Sorry! Even thought it is 2PM here, I'm still not fully awake.
It's kind of hard to 'form' a sentence,...:yawn:
