Hello . I am trying to burn a Playstation 2 dual-layer game , i have tried multiple MKM-003-000 discs , tested on 2 consoles but it just won't read them .

I also tried some CMC MAG-D03-64 and i had better results with those !? .. even if they stop working after a while . 

Can you go under 4x writing speed or it's a disk limitation ? I'm also attaching a log .

2 things.

 

1.) Is your PS 2 modded?  If it isn't, copies of games won't play at all, regardless of if they're single or double layer.  Unless you're using a soft mod, which is still a mod.

 

2.) Be aware not all mod chips supported double layer copies.

 

You can write below 4x.  But, 1.) you need 2.4x media, and it's not guaranteed the drive isn't hyped up to write beyond 2.4x on that rated media.  2.) you can try setting a slower write speed, but user entered values are not always honored by the drive itself, as the hardware will do whatever the Hell it wants to.

Yes, it's modded both hardware and software . I even tried to disable the chip, same result . 

I used an external Verbatim drive and i could write at 3x . But on an internal LG drive the minimum is 4x . 

Bitsetting was manually set to DVD-ROM in both cases .

That only applies to games and it depends on if you have a fat or slim model PS 2.  MKM's worked fine for DVD Video for a decade on my fat model PS 2.  The slim, not so much.  However, the slim model never played DVD's correctly without skips and pauses in playback because, well, it's a slim model, and almost all slim models of anything with an optical drive are junk.
