    I have patched my copy of WE9 and i have been playing with it for a little while and noticed that it crashed every now and again.

    Wondering if there is a particular make of writable dvd media that is better for use with the PS2.

    I don't use cheap discs, I want to keep my laser in full working order, I use RiDisc (purple die) they are probably the best discs you can use for PS2, £5 for 25 from blankmediacompany.co.uk

    Laser isn't a problem to replace as far as I know, and I haven't had a problem myself with cheap media - maybe it's the burn speed, and more importantly the DVD writer itself that plays a bigger part?

    I burned at 2x and have a toshiba dvd writer which by several reviews is the best you can get at the moment. I may try the dvd's ghost suggests.

    TDK works like a original PS2 DVD.. use it. They´re not cheap but using TDK you´re almost using original DVD. I am using DataWrite right now and they work fine too but I must recognize TDK ownz.

    Tesco are doing a deal for buy one get one free, and TDK are some of the types on offer. They were cleared off the shelf when I got back for another pair though :(
