Although I've been using ESR pretty much for all of my backups, it's hindering my enjoyment of .hack//GU since the cutscenes are stuttering horribly. And yes, I'm pretty sure it isn't my PS2 or the DVD drive, since my legit copies of other games runs smoothly without any hiccups during fmvs. I've also burned the game on to 3 different dvd-r brands (Sony, HP, and Memorex) at both 2x and 3x, and they all yielded the same results. So in order for me to enjoy the game without being annoyed at the constant stuttering, I've decided to try an HDD solution for the game. What would you guys recommend: HDLoader or HDAdvance?
