My friend decided to give me his Swap Magic 3.6 (too scratched for him to use anymore, already installed Free McBoot, and I bought him lunch a few times) and I immediately cleaned it with toothpaste (good thing I didn't tell him that you can clean it with toothpaste) and my PS2 actually read the thing. So, instead of putting my PS2 at risk, I decided I would install Free McBoot this weekend. While preparing to softmod my PS2, I had some questions about disk burning and thought I should ask you guys. Yes, I used the search function, but it didn't come up with results that answer most of my questions. I'll be be blunt: 1. Does it matter if you use DVD-R or DVD+R? 2. Because I should burn at 2.4X, does the number on the disc have to be at least 2.4X? (For example: Verbatim 4.7GB 16X DVD+R) 3. If I follow this method of burning: http://www.mementoteam.com/Guides/Eng/te4.html (from playallday's guide) do I still need to patch it with ESR? (Using Free McBoot v1.8) 4. If I can burn .iso's using DVD-R, can I use this disc? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817130950 5. If the one above isn't good for it's price/value, which Verbatim discs are usually the most preferred for PS2 .iso burning? Thanks for any help given and sorry if this gets asked a lot.
