I have done more research on this. It seems that with games that burn close to the edge (Def Jam Fight for NY, 4.6GB; Starwars Battlefront 4.5GB and other large games like Mercenaries) the Taiyo Yuden media out performs the Ritek G05 media. How is this possible if the Taiyo Yuden dye is G02 and my Ritek dye is G05.

You could try asking in the gamecube section. I know its a bit empty in there but a few people in there could help you out.

Ritek vs. TY

I haven't modded my PS2 yet, but I'm using my experiences from my Xbox. TYG02 work great. When burning Halo 2, (takes up a full DVD-R), the Ritek G05's produced 2 coasters (1 bad write, 1 dirty/damaged disc). The TYG02 worked perfectly. The G05's are unreliable for me. Sometimes they work perfectly, and sometimes they give me problems. I've never had a problem with the TY's tho. If you want to use Ritek, I reccomend using the G04's Premium Grade, as they seem to be more stable/reliable then the G05's.

whats better then, i may have to change my ps2 laser soon caus i can hear mine making a bit of noise where my old one didnt. Bloody preowned consoles . Now as i should get my modchip waited 3 weeks from worldmodchips still hasnt come! after many emails i dont trust him and reported it to paypal. So when i do get my crystal i should be looking for this.

I usually use riteks but there pritty hard to get my usual decent ones now ridata are using different dyes which in the pics look prityy light. Im currently using ridisc from svp in packs of 10 there the purple and silver toped ones. I havent had 1 problem with them. I still say riteks but i havent tried ty yet. Anyone know a good supplyer in the uk?

Ok I just moved this thread to the CD/DVD Media section since it had more than just the ps2 console involved.

I guess Taiyo wins...

I just backed up NBA Street Vol. 3. The game was 4.698 GB. That is a pretty huge game and it burned all the way to the edge of the disc. Like Dust said, some media gets bad quality towards the edge, and I have tried 4 top rated brands...(TDK, Ritek, Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden). In all of those experiments Taiyo Yuden outperformed the others with the larger sized games.

Now as a point of refernce I will make a comment about Ritek and Taiyo Yuden when not using a mod chip. My cousin uses the Swap Magic discs for his backup method (yes he is converting to a chip soon). What we found is that no matter how good the media is, how good the burn is, it seems that with the larger games (the ones with also a large TOC as well), do not have good backup qualith. So in his case, even backing up his games with superior media will not yield positive results as long as the backup is the same size or larger than the TOC on the Swap Disc.
