Hehe, I ask this because I got into a wee bit of a dilemma here. I bought two brands of DVD's, TDK and Memorex, as these were the only things the store had (I recall that Verbatim is considered to be one of the best choices to burn a game). Now, this is all fine and dandy, as I aimed to use the TDK ones more, for whatever reason..until I noticed that some games would barely work on it. My copy of Valkyrie Profile 2 which I tested to try out random burn rates would constantly skip no matter what rate I burned it, and I was just puzzled by it. So, I end up using a Memorex DVD and it works without a SINGLE flaw. Now, I'm a bit curious as while I was looking into it, I recall some searches in Google bringing up the idea that certain DVD brands and their quality can cause larger wear and tear on the lens. I've been through 3 PS2's already, and I'd like to not be put through a 4th, so what I'd like to know are what are the best brands for quality, playability, and lens reliability? Also, I'm curious here...is Memorex reliable? Will it deter my lens at a faster rate than other DVDs? Or do I just seem to like it because it does stuff TDK had issues with? Both DVD's have the same type of ID: RITEKF1, if that matters at all.
