"Check Condition" it's typical problem with burning media (or less quality burner).
Try ImageBurn, which is succesor of DVD Decrypter. Maybe he doesn't manage with that preparing disc.
For DL media:
1.) make iso ;]
2.) patch by Toxic DL Patcher
3.) patch by ESR Disc Patcher
4.) burn ;]
Couple of points:
NTSC <-> PAL w/Y fix program is apparently a hit or miss type of thing, and also what sounded like the "best" version which has become to be referred to as the December 2005 release (month/year of release) is difficult to find as in I haven't.
The program failed to work on a Shadow Hearts 2: Covenant image that I used for testing, as it still booted PAL on a NTSC console when patched with the version available from SKSapps.
Some games, apparently will "natively" or have an option to pick PAL or NTSC, but I haven't seen any as most of mine are NTSC, and the only PAL that I have is SH2 which I used for testing purposes.
I'd go with a hardware converter or a TV/monitor that handle both signal types. If you go with an external converter box, let us know which one and how it works out even though you are going reverse of what I want.
Well, I've got an NEC 3550a w/1.05 fw and it handles SL Verbatim DVD-Rs perfectly. From what I've read elsewhere with the media the country that the media is made in is as important as the mfg name. From what I've read Japanese is best but uncommon now, with Taiwan being the 2nd best. China/India ALL seem to be a definite skip. (I had problems myself with Chinese DVD+Rs of various brands.)
Also it seems that some older PS2 models may not handle DVD+Rs well, maybe even some of the newer ones as well (post was unclear/vague), so I stuck with DVD-Rs for my first attempts.
Use IMGBURN @ 4X (haven't tried kicking up the burn rate yet for 16X media) as any higher gave problems with bad media (failed to even boot at higher burn speeds, and still usually froze when burned at 4X while the Verbatims seem perfect).
Verbatim Taiwan DVD-Rs
79001 console NTSC-U/C
(bunch of earlier reports with particular successes here's a new one)
Wizardry: Tales of the Forsaken Lands NTSC
Converted to DVD with a 1G padding file.
ESR 0.24a windows GUI patched
Burned at 4X with IMGBURN
Works fine. (
Didn't Memento patch it as it was reported to not work, although in retrospect I'm not certain if it was just user error (failed to convert to DVD properly) or if it truly does not work. i.e. Should've memento patched it and tested as I strongly suspect that the failed memento report was likely trying to use a CD image or a FUBARed DVD ISO conversion...)
Maybe it's just my disc, but it seems to me that 9b has somewhat longer load times than 9a. Has anyone else noticed this? It's particularly noticeable in SRW:OG, when it waits several seconds at the start of a battle animation before a sprite enters the screen, then after a sprite enters, than after the sprite does its animation and it's the other unit's turn to retaliate.
Hello there what a great break throught in the ps2 scene heres my problem and im hoping one of you may help me. Ive got a 30001 Fat PS2 U.S. and The game im trying to load is a backup of my Guitar Hero III. Now heres my problem that i think i know what is wrong but want to make sure. I burned my Guitar Hero 3 Iso to a DVD+R and ran the esr beta from my mass i used the Direct off since that one seems to be getting the closest to loading it. but when i load it it goes through all the colors then just stops at a black screen. I think its because my DVDs wont work with my phat ps2 so should i buy DVD-R's? or am i doing something wrong with the beta
please respond back
Have u burn using DVD-Ram method ?
Try using a DVD-R
With DVD+R you should make sure that your burning program uses the correct 'Booktype' setting for DVDROM. But I'm not sure that this is the problem you're having. I think it would freeze earlier in such a case, not going through 'all the colors' as you say.

We'd need to know more about both your console (model, age, etc) and your media (brand, recommended burn speed, real burn speed you used) in order to give more detailed help.
You should also search for information about the game itself, to see if others have found it compatible with ESR, as it obviously won't work for you either if there is some compatibility problem.

My Laptops DVD Burner is an Optiarc DVD RW AD-7563A ATA Device and i just leave the settings for it normal since in my image burn thing it doesnt have the Opitiarc setting available. And as for the disk speed i leave it on automatic. I hope that gives you a little more info i just bought some dvd-r's im going to test those out i think my ps2 just might have trouble reading them. And the type of DVD+R's are memorex
i would suggest getting some sony dvd-r's from like say wal-mart make sure they have accucore 95% of my games work on these burning at 4x as i have the same model ps2.
yup just bought some dvd-r's works good as gold god dammit lol now i have so many blanks its retarded hahahaha but thanks for everyones help anyways.
