    Hey folks,

    I have a PS2 version SCPH-30001. I think it's a version 4 because it has the electrical hazard warning on the bottom of the case (serial US5 PREFIX)
    1C date code.

    I am considering backing up some games but my unit doesn't seem to read my DVD-R movie backups.

    I am considering buying the slidecard and the smartdisk DVD mod.

    Will they work then?

    Will I have to copy to DVD-RAM?

    I used Memorex media and TDK as well. Neither worked.
    Any suggestions?

    Will I need a solder in Chip?

    BTW - My unit plays commercial DVD's fine, but not older games like Namco Museum and Silent Scope.

    If I were you I would install the dms3 chip. If you aren't sure how to install it there are plenty of diagrams to help you at the dms3 website.

    If you need more assistance, there is a forum for dms users. Someone there will be able to help you.

    You could always buy a new ps2 with the chip installed for you. You said your version 4 doesn't work with some games. A pre-modified v9 will work with all originals, backups, imports. Compared to the v4, the v9 is whisper quiet.

    As far as the media goes, earlier versions of the ps2 wont read dvd+r, you'll have to use dvd-r. DVD-Ram discs are not used for backups. As far as the brand of disc, I have used Verbatim, Imation, and TDK dvd-r discs burned at 1x or 2x and have had no troubles.

    Will the chip enable DVD-R reads?
    Mine doesn't seem to read -R or +r's burnt
    with X copy gold.

    Thanks for your replies thus far.

    Also would swap disk alleviate the DVD-R boot problem?

    And do you think it may be the DVD X COPY Gold that is keeping the -R movies from playing?
