I believe you need to ESR patch the ISO before burning it to a disc.

Edit: I'd suggest setting up FMCB if possible and use OPL to stream the games from your computer via the network, it'll save you the hassle of burning discs.
OPL compatibility is built into Matrix Infinity, no need for Free McBoot.

Another type of patching has been discovered, but I don't know if there's yet a tool to make it easy.

Still, patches should be unnecessary with a modchip. The chip is supposed to let burnt games automatically play when inserted.
Have you verified the Matrix Infinity is installed correctly and works?

should use verbatim if you not. v1.99 = clone. the highest matrix infinity firmware is 1.93. clones almost always have 1.99. installing official firmware will brick the system. I had an infinity in my first ps2 slim, then switched to a clone, since they stopped making the infinities in like 2007. it's almost impossible to find one now that isn't a clone.

possibly unless something is wrong with the laser or modchip. I've had some lesser known brands do the same thing with my modchip, even when it was new. I've never had a failed verbatim though. TDK, Verbatim, and Taiyo Yuden are all good brands for the ps2. I think only verbatim still exists while the other two were bought out by other companies.

I don't know. my original ps2 and modchip lasted about 12 years, then one day I couldn't boot anything including retail discs. I bought a new system about 2-3 years ago. I don't play it often, but everything but a backup of mega man anniversary collection works and fast too.

mm anniversary collection has heavy skipping on the opening. for some weird reason, a newly burned disc works a few times, then stops working. I thought it might need a pot adjustment, but that does seem doubtful if it's just that one game. I bought the retail disc, and it works 100% on there. one thing I have found with the ps2 is that almost every ps2 has a problematic game or two that refuses to work correctly. my original ps2 would read mega man x3 almost every time as a music disc. you can play the game tracks in a cd player, which might've confused it. this new ps2 has no issues with it including skipping, which my old ps2 would do quite a bit with the game (if it loaded). I was thinking about just soft modding the system, but I have like 300-400 discs. I tested a couple of those, and they booted right up. most of my burns are on tdk, verbatim, or taiyo yuden, but I do have some on sony discs. sony discs are average. I once bought a spindle of 100 of them, and 10 were duds on the old ps2.

The disc reader on PS2 consoles (especially the launch ones) were very unreliable so you're better off just loading the games via HDD/USB.

If I had to burn the ISOs to DVDs, I'd just buy the actual games, then.

If FreeDVDBoot works, why not just use that. Why do you need patches?
Also, you can get less lag by using samba SMB network through the ethernet port, but you need to connect it to your PC or a Raspberry Pi.

It's just that Verbatim Ultralife seem to be the most reliable CD/DVD. It may or may not be the issue.
