I rather use -R (Verbatim +R are also very good. -Rs still work better on a friends V3.).

AFAIK, you donÂ´t NEED to do this, with DVD-R.
Basically you are burning a DVD+R (DVD-R can't do this)
IÂ´m not 100% certain anymore, where this info was stored.
with the flag that tricks the DVD player, or console into thinking the disc is a DVD-ROM, by using that flag while burning the disc. It makes the disc a little less likely to be rejected. It has nothing to do with the PS2's retail game security though.
This also helps with older DVD players that will not play DVDs unless they have that flag.
Thought, the ATIP wasnÂ´t changeable so I believe it was somewhere else.
Back to your main-post.
The problem you describe is a bit , because it seems the DVD is:
-chemically reacting after burning
-has an ultra-sensitive, photo-reactive layer
