Loading Times and Skipping Video –
I was wondering how significant cleaning the laser of my V7 PS2 would be. I use Ritek G04 media to burn backups and movies. I notice that my loading times are very long (about 30 seconds for Need for Speed Underground 2) and there is an abundance of skipping while playing .avi files with PS2 Media Player 1.50.
I've never cleaned a laser before, but I'm wondering if the effort is worth it? How signficant would cleaning my laser be on loading times and video playback?
I'm only asking because I HAVE done my searching, and I didn't find the significance of lense cleaning on loading times and skipping. I'm assuming it WILL help, but I want to know HOW MUCH it will help.
well think of it like this if you bought a car and never got it wash or even clean the wind sheild, how clear would your vision be? the same as the laser the cleaner the lens the more exsposure the laser has to read the information on your disc.
Sure it's worth a shot, but I would also look at the type of laser and how fast you burned it at.
your right about that to fast of a burner would give you alot of the truobles your experiening too. good catch moja.
Thanks for the analogy. =D I'm also burning at 4x, I would do 2x but my discs don't burn at that speed. =\
Well, I would think 4x would be ok. Assuming your media is fine, what kind of laser do you have? They say 400c is the best, but I am also suspicious that there are differences among 400cs.
