    I think it depends on what version PS2 and bios you have. Ive seen some people post that and DVD no matter what format it is it plays others only a -r or -rw etc, etc. Its kinda like my xbox some people all formats play mine will play a -r & +r but not rw. Hope this helps. Oh and see what format the movie is in. Just becouse it plays in windows media player dosent mean a DVD player will read it.

    Expanding on what fibertag said, have you tried to play the copy in a set-top player to verify the copy is good?

    a movie from the internet (which will be illegal anyways) will probably be in .avi or .mpeg format and wont play driectly on a ps2. you would have to convert it to dvd format first using something like TMPGenc. I have backed up my dvd on -r, +r and +rw and all have played on my version 5 ps2.

    www.whitedog.co.uk this site has a section on it to determine what version ps2 you have.
    hope this helps
