    I have been making backups for my DVD's sicne christmas and realize that my PS2 cannot play burnt DVD's, yet some of my friends tell me that it will work on their PS2 but not on mine. Is their a reason for this? Is their anyway around this?

    You might try a change in media. A lot of PS2's like a decent quality -R media as opposed to a +R media. Crappy media is also a no-no -

    See if that helps -

    I agree with Pete as usuall :)

    It is most likely a media issue and if you are using +R's I have found that PS console's like the -R's better :)

    There are currently 12 different versions of PS2. Some play -R's and some play +R's, some play either and some play none.
