using dvd-rw ...but reflectivity issues not sure..
hi guys, sort of new to this forum but certainly not new to the scene... :)
Found out something interesting today, ... all these while i have been burning backups and running them,
dvd-r only not dvd+r
One thing i noticed is that erm, okay, whenever i put an original or pressed dvds in, the ps2 unit is rather quiet (v5 and v7 ), and runs smoothly. But today i put in a dvd-rw of a game as i wanted to try out a burning program, to my surprise, the disc loads, and runs extremely quiet! much like the operation for originals and silvers as well ! so i think this is wierd, but all i know is reflectivity of dvd-rw is always less than that of dvd-r but how is this situation in my ps2 explained? btw, v5 is chipped with messiah1 and v7 is chipped with messiah2 pro v1.00.
But i have read some faqs and threads here that says, dvd-rw may work 'initially' but as lasers get worn off and play time increases, then i would have laser problems with my ps2 ... so can anyone explain is it normal for the ps2, to play dvd-r at slightly highly level of noise compared to dvd-rw?, ... coz everything i load a dvd-r backup, somehow i can listen to the laser moving and spinning, not that loud but i can hear it when i turn off the volume and it's just not the same kind of volume compared with originals...
As i have already written off a ps2 earlier, my very first unit due to playing rips hehhe, i have learn to backup to dvd-r only... but after trying out dvd-rw today, initially i thought of copying all those dvd-r into dvd-rw.... is this a good idea? or dvd-rw is the eventual killer of my laser?, .... loading quietly at first but after a few plays, my ps2 would die? ...
