I know DVD-R works fine. But dunno about DVD-RW. Gotta Check.
It depends on the PS2 version. (and on the chip if you have a v9+, I mean if the machine is chipped)
Is there a list some where that shows what kind of discs work on what ps2 versions, because that would be very helpful.
i have a V7 and a Magic2 and it works fine on mine. I usually burn certain games on dvd-rw just incase i dont like the game. Then i dont waste a dvd-r on it.
its off and on for me,
i have watched dvd-rw movies on my v7 but it also doesnt want to boot it up sometimes...
CD-RW, DVD-RW and DVD+RW work fine on my V5 PS2, its got a Messiah 1 mod in it :)
nice , i go buy 1 and will try it. got ver 7 messjh 2 pro :D
V7 will work with any type of media (DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW and CD-R... CD-RW depends on the media quality but used to work, if the laser is in good condition) Do not waste your time with RWs on v9+ with a reduced wire number mod (except you installed the extra wire that needs to be soldered) and old machines like v3, v4 used to have problems reading RWs. RWs have lower reflectivity, and stress the laser much more, so using those media will shorten the laser life.
pS: V5 + V7 are still the best machines if you ask me.
I have a v3, v4 & v7 & have never been able to get them to read CD-RW or DVD-RW or DVD+RW. I've tried several different burning proggies & several brands of disc.
