Ps2 reading slow and media burning question

#1

when i start my ps2 (v2, messiah 2) with a game inside it first goes to the welcome screen and after about 10 seconds or less it starts the game. is that an indication that my laser is dying (again :frowning: )?

i hear ppl saying that for ps2 dvds should be burned @ 4x max. others i hear say “don’t burn 16x media at such low speeds or the world will end” (or something to that effect).

i get somewhat better scans (lower pie/pif) if i burn my infiniti 16x mcc 03rg20 dvds at 16x rathar than 4x. is that an indication of better ps2 backup or…

i am most concerned about the life of my (really expensive up to this point) ps2

burner is benq 1620 b7t9

thnx y’all

With dvd based ps2 games media plays the biggest part always use quality media…
As for burning speed i always go no faster than 4x with a few exceptions at 8x but 90% are at 4x which i think reads in the ps2 that little bit better…
I also have a messiah 2 in my (version 7 ps2) and have no problems with verbatim or ty media…
