Hi, bit of a newby question here but I've been trawling through the internet and after lots of forum threads which went along the lines of "HOW I BURN DISCS?" and "WHAT IZ MODCHIP?" I finally found this place, which appears to be full of a few fairly knowledgable chaps so I hope someone here might be of assistance.
My slimline playstation (V16) isn't modchipped, but I do however have a the "Magic Keys" installed and I use a "Swap Magic V3.6" boot disc. This hasn't given me any trouble to date and I can run a fair amount of imported games.
I've just created an image of my "Rogue Galaxy" game for the PS2 which I promptly burnt (burned?) using a recently downloaded trial version of "Alchohol 120%". Being completely uneducated in the matters of burning I stuck with what it was suggesting and burnt the image to a DVD+R at ( I think) 8X speed.
Now, the game does run but the issue is that it doesn't do that very well. Speech and music during cut scenes will often stop playing, only to restart at innapropriate times and events (notifications, entering menus) will often lead the game to stalling for a few minutes before catching up. My playstation is also making an awfully worrying grinding noise.
I've been looking around quite a bit and I've seen things telling me to burn ONLY to DVD-R and to burn at 2X speed. Is this truth? And have I been quite foolish? Any help would be much appreciated.
