I have a Lite-on 411S DVD burner and I am looking for quality DVD-/+R media for my PS2 (Version 7), any suggestions? I dont want to spend much over $1 a disc.

Thanks
Ian

Thanks for the suggestions.
Any idea where to get those at here in the states?
What brand is DVD-R:TYG01?
Sorry I am a noob at DVD burning.

I have the exact same situation as you, slipneo007. I have a 411s and I have a ps2 version 7.

I believe it is going to be very hard to find MCC or TY for less than $1 a piece. I paid $2.90 for TY at compusa (fujifilm 4x dvd-r made in japan).

I have been using ritek g4 and you can find those for less than $1. However, when you put a game on them, the playstation asks for a ps2 compatible disk. If you put a movie on them and then play that on the ps2, it rocks!

I have been putting the games on crappy cmc magnetics media. You should be able to find some of that for less than $1. However, movies put on those disks have a tendency to pixelate on stand alone players.

The version 7 PS2 I have plays +R media without a hitch. So I would suggest finding some +R media and using the bitsetting utility to set the book type to dvd-rom.

Here is the link I use to find media:

Hope that helps.

genericuser-
You need a modchip to play games
I have the slide card and it works OK. but the lens has a very hard time reading my memorex DVD+Rs, and the games wont load.
I use Alcohol 120 to burn my PS2 games, anyone have a better software suggestion?

Best price I found for a pack of 100 is $168.00 before shipping from www.rima.com To my zip code in PA shipping is only 5.85.
Anyone ever buy from www.rima.com ?
