im having some strange issues getting disks i have burnt lately to work in my ps2
its hard to nail down the culprit as im using both new disks, and im not sure but could be also the fact im using a new drive.
Disks are TDK inkjet Printable DVD+R
Burner is LG GSA-H42N (with riplock disabled)
i was trying to backup Budkai Tenkaichi 2, and every disk (about 15 or so) failed, atleast of course, until i used a cheap ass DATASTREAM DVD+RW which, of course, happens to work fine.
now, all disk i made prior to using both the new burner, and printable disks, all work fine.
another funny thing, is that when i first burnt BT2 it worked, albeit, jumpy and stuff and it froze during the intro.
my original burner was a Pioneer DVR-108, which, all the games burnt on that, work fine. had to replace the DVR due to a failing recording lens (disks just started to not work at all)
now my post was really just to ask
Has anyone else had similar issues with printable disks, and or H42N’s?
now i have thought the normal stuff
- PS2 lens failing - well i already know that, but old disks work
- chip is crap - well yeah, its a crappy mini apple 3 which i intend to have ripped out and replaced with a more expensive updatable modchip at some point.
ok, i just used a normal TDK disk and it worked, so i guess it was just the damn printable media.
