You burning a movie? Also, check that you don’t need to enable anything on the PS3 to make DVD movies work or something. Do original dvds work? A little more info needed. Btw, if you are only having trouble playing DVD movies on PS3, don’t bother, just use a DVD player as using the PS3 too much for stuff you don’t need to may ruin it’s laser quicker.

I would burn them at 12x.

For games I would go for the ever reliable 8x burn. I’ve never seen an 8x burn be much worse than a 12x burn. Yet I’ve had many discs burn worse @ 12x. My LG4167B does far worse on MCC004 @ 12x than it does at 8x. This is the same for TYG03 as well in some of my drives.

So my recommendation is 8x :slight_smile:

I don’t refer to games, it wouldnt make a difference anyway.

The guy is having trouble with a PS3, burning a movie for use on a Playstation 2/3 is the same deal as burning a game for it, you go for the best most reliable speed so the console won’t have trouble reading it.

Not making a difference is a matter of opinion, I know for a fact that some of my writers are far better when writing @ 8x than they are @ 12x. I’ve witnessed choppy playback and freezing when watching a 12x burn. “It wouldn’t make a difference” might apply to you, but it doesn’t for everyone :wink:

It depends, take an oldish Panasonic standalone as example, they insist on to be fed with DVD-R burnt at max 8x or no-go. :slight_smile:
So, as for the ps3 it is surely true, I don’t doubt it because I have none.
