[Advice] For ESR/Free MCBoot Users with DVD+R Discs
Hello there. I was searching around and didn't see anything about this using DVD+R discs for your game backups.
Well, I read on another site that DVD+R discs can work just as well as regular DVD-R discs on PS2 (Fat OR Slim).
Alright, the program I used for this was ImgBurn. All you have to do is burn at HALF the speed that is indicated on the disc (lie if it says 16x on the disc, burn it as 8x).
Then... Make sure the DVD Booktype is changed to DVD-ROM instead of DVD+ROM (I have no idea how I did this, so you have to use Google).
I read that this is the way to get your PS2 to read DVD+R discs and fooling it into thinking it was a DVD-R disc.
I've tested this on my V13 PS2 and my V7 PS2. They both work flawlessly. All my backups have worked, anyway.
I also use Maxell DVD+Rs, one of the recommended brands that has a 85% to 100% accuracy.
