    When burning PSone game you burn at the lowest speed, but when doing PS2 isos you burn at the highest speed. Am I correct? Also are Maxwell DVD-Rs good quality for the PS2. MY dad has a pack of them and I wanted to make sure if they are good quality before he tries to return them and I have to go buy some.

    I burn them at 4x-16x. Most of the time at 4x.

    Doesn't matter the game - burn at a slow speed.

    Also, I would try using Verbatim DVDs instead of Maxwell. Maxwell is a pretty cheap brand.

    Always burn at 2.4x or 4x. This really goes for all DVD consoles I think.

    ps1 are cdr you can get away with burning a bit faster I used to do mine at 12x [​IMG]

    its when its DVDR you have to watch how fast you burn ... although others say they have success at faster speeds I tend to stick to 2.4x for mine and only use RITEK G05 media as for me with my PIONEER burners they work the best [​IMG]

    Maxells are cheap but usable. I go at 2.4x but MAX works too.

    ok most of you say slow and/or 2.4x so I'll try that but just wondering......what does the writing speed matter....what will be different if i brun at this slow speed rather than a fast one

    Look at the flag
    If you burn it fast, PS2 will have to read it fast. And PS2's laser is not as fast as you might think. I don't know how or why it works like that, but it's the truth.

    oh...ok. Just wondering

    EDIT-Thats probably why my Dark Cloud 2 and Namco X Capcom games don't work that well
