Which dvd-r works the best on the Philps dvd-rom? The 1x dvd-r Princos dont work, the 2x dvd-r Princos do work but not that great and the Maxell 2x work perfectly but they're very expensive! Please post what type of dvd-r you use please!

Ritek silvertops at www.mertiline.com starting out with a 25 pack for $28 and getting cheaper as you order in bigger quantitys. If you don't mind a 1x burn then definitely get these as they are generally agreed to be the best media for the price.

Well, I've got the CenDyne [Pioneer a05/105] burner and I purchased a 3 pack of Memorex V2 DVD's and have had NO problems with those on my Philips drive. On the other hand, I just got a box of 50 Princo 1x and Have burnt 3 games [2 as a multi and DOA3] and have no problems. What kind of DVD burner do you have?
Actually I tried the video a few times on DOA3 and it seems a bit choppy, possibly due to the fact I'm using the 1.00 firmware, not the new one- 1.21. Keep you posted...

Not really related but I find that TDK/multi color/Slim case CDR's work fine in my Phillips drive - regardless of how fast i burn em!!

|What kind of DVD burner do you have?|
I have a pioneer 105. And I had my friend make some backups on princo 1x on his sony DRU-500A and they have horrible movie playback and choppy game play. But when I put the games into my 2nd dvd-rom (Pioneer add-on dvd-rom mod) it plays the games fine. But when I made my back-ups with 2x princo with my pioneer 105 my philps dvd-rom can play them back perfectly. Now why is that?
"I use nero and gdi image to backup my games adn so does he!"
