Is Better Actually BETTER??
When I first got my burner I wanted to test the waters, so I bought a pack of cheap Princo (white tops). I haven't had a problem yet with my games. But now that I have the hang of things, I wanted to buy the best media, which seems to be Verbatim. I've been reading these threads for a while, and it seems that everyone swears by these DVD-Rs. I got a back of Verbatim (DatalifePlus) DVD-R 4.7 GB, and I have yet to make a burn that works. I've tried a couple of games, but my PS2 goes directly to the Browser screen (and I can also hear the disc spinning quickly like a constant skipping within the drive). I've tried re-burning these games on the Princos I had left, and they played perfect.
I don't mind paying more...I only use verbatim CDRs for Rips or smaller games. But the DVD-Rs just don't seem to read in my PS2. This doesn't make sense to me, since, if anything.....I should have problem reading the cheaper media...Not the more expensive.
