Yepp, like dlanor said...
I already spoke a bit about 'booktyping' in my previous replys to you.
1. You don't know if your DVD-Writer supports booktyping (except if it is a PIONEER, which booktypes to DVD-ROM which is good in most if not all cases...).
2. Some people swear on DVD+R and booktype them. Probably, because it is physically closer to the original medium, than -Rs are... (look at the inner circle on -R/RW).
Thanks for the replys if the disks my mate gives me works ill order some verbatim dvd-r disks, and in response to the alcohol on the lens i used NHS grade isopropyl alcohol wipes which im pretty possitive are safe.
Yepp, like I said: Isopropyl shouldn't cause any problems. :)

Regardless of that, it is recommented to not use the PS2's laser at all.
God knows what most of us would do with a PS2 whose laser isn't working anymore... THX to FMCB and OPL, alot PS2s are still alive and actively used for gaming.
Out of curiosity how much would a new laser for my model custom or offical cost? i ask because i searched ebay and all i saw were slim lasers for the s7000 models.

PVR and SPU, thought and it shouldn't cost more than 30$, thought...
ok i tried some verbatim dvd-r that my friend gave me and they worked fine and even scratched them and smudged them a bit and they still booted like the real disks.
