I have had a PSX since 1999 and from about 2015 forwards I've never managed to stabilise in a sure fire burning method. I even tried to get older CDs as opposed to the modern Verbatims, but I was never able to burn backups as successfully as I used to as a kid in the old days, I used ImgBurn at various speeds, DiscJuggler and even went back to Alcohol 120% with the Playstation 1 data mode selected and Nero.
Recently I got a Dreamcast and a Saturn, burning the backups with DiscJuggler and ImgBurn respectively and I never had a single coaster, the games always read at first try and run without FMV lag of any sort, all totally fluid.
Back to PSX, I remember even in the old days that it was common for successfully burned and working backups to not boot at first try (hanging on the PSX logo screen), so are Sony's optical drives just worse quality than Sega's in these instances?
And more to the point, could you please share your methods for burning PSX backups so I can finally stop burning coasters? Media used / program / burning speed? Thanks in advance
