The truth is that ps2 is more compatible with the -r format.
I believe although that the compatibility of your console depends on the model of it reader.
To be sure that the discs your are recording the games are ok for your console just write a game that you have already backup successfully before on a media you currently own.
I have heard a lot of people complaining about ea sports games incompatibility since the ps1 console.
Just keep in mind that the -r format is the most compatible and finally check the link that i posted before for swap magic fixes

It "should" read DVD -R discs, but it won't write them, and most users have reported that the -R format is "more compatable" with the PS2....

You can use Nero CD-DVD Speed to see what the capabilities are of your drive, as far as reading, or DVD Info Pro, or a number of other utilities, I think perhaps it will read DVD-R, but this is not certain, but it definately will not write them, and this is the key for compatability for writing successful backups of PS2...

Jarrell,

Do you have a Circuit City near you? You can pickup the I/O Magic 4X DVD +/- R format (Optorite Rebadged) drive for around 149.00 with a rebate from I/O Magic. But don't count on the rebate from I/O Magic, I have four of them pending from last year and they say they have ever received them... yeah RIGHT!!!! But the drive is worth 149.00 that you have to pay up front...
