    Can I burn a PS2 game on a DVD+R? For ESR. I've only got those, and some Dual layers.

    From what I understand, no. Or if you can, it doesn't work very well. I've tried and it hasn't worked for me, so DVD-R's are required. However, I'm told you can change the booktype to DVD-ROM when you burn the discs and that works, too.

    I see. I've got Persona 3 FES burning now, if it doesn't work should I try USB Loading? (I have a Slim, and I heard USB Loading is terrible on it. :/)

    No clue. I haven't tried USB Loading on a Slim before, so I don't know how well it works. I suppose you could if you don't wanna go out and buy DVD-R's...

    Yeah, offline I'm pretty broke. If I have to I will, but I'd prefer not to have to hitch a ride over to the store.

    I'm not sure why a lot of people are having issues with +R when booktyped to DVD-ROM, majority of my backups are on +R and I had ran these on many slims and a few fat.

    USB loading compatibility isn't very good. Some games do run fine, no harm in trying it out.
    Network loading is good if you have a access to a computer to stream.

    Open PS2 Loader works for USB, network, & Fat PS2 HDD (or slim HDD mods/chips) loading. Compatibility between the network and usb in OPL is strangely not the same.
    OPL is a huge improvement from USBExtreme/Advance for USB loading, but is still slow at USB 1.1 speeds.
