I recently bought 30 TY 80-min CD-Rs that were FujiFilm brand Made in Japan (mostly blue, with some green, on the bottom) and backed up some titles with my Plextor Premium at 8x using Alchohol 120%. The games skip far less than CMC Magnetics and Moaer Bauser India (sp?), but still skip a bit, and ythe still boot up about 1.7 times slowler than an original of the same title.
My question is this: Is my problem the discs (Mitsubishi any better with their Verbatim DataLifePlus dark blue discs?), the drive speed (8x) or the PlayStation 1's (old model, SCPH-7502, September 1998, big grey style) laser (I heard that PS1's lasers were junk)?
If anyone can let me know what I need to do to make a backup that performs identically to the original, let me know.
