I am having same problem with my PlayStation lagging or skipping frames or cinemas, even freezing during them. I pretty much know it's my drive's incompatibility to the CD's I'm using. I am using Verbatim DataLifePlus Crystal Azo CD's (97m34s23f Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.), now what burner should be capable with these CD's? (I would prefer to use these, since I trust these, and because of my location can't seem to get Taiyo Yudens cheap after shipping.)
I checked a website selling second hand stuff near me, and the drives that I find there are: HL Datastorage GSA-T40N, Sony CRX(something), Benq 652A, Samsung SH-S182D, HL GDR-8162B, Compaq GDR-8160B, samsung SH-S223, Samsung SH-S182, LG GDR H10N, Sony AD-5170A and Lite-On LH-18A1H.
Now what could be the top 3 or 5 for the verbatim azo CD's? I really don't need it to anything else than that. I hear playstation has problems with games that are burned with high speed, if this helps somehow Thanks if someone takes the time to think this trough.
