    I was wondering if dvd-rw's could work on ps2's. Thanks. I've tried it before and it didn't work, is it the media?

    Yes, I have tried it with my HP dvd200i and the dvd-rw that came with the burner.

    What ps2 do you have. I might matter what version you have. I tried a burned movie and it didn't work, it said read disc error. Thanks for any help.

    Not without a Modchip installed.

    So it is able to work as long as you have a modchip?

    it depends what media you're using and whats on the disk.

    as it has already been said - depending on the version of your PS2 (and therefore its age) and the type of RW disk you're using, some PS2 drives may not read some RW disks. my DVD-RW drive came with a Datasafe Media 1x disk and that works perfectly on my V5 PS2.

    as for the need for modchipping - your PS2 needs to be modchipped to play games, if you're copying games onto a DVD-RW they wont play without a modchip.
    however your PS2 does not need to be chipped in order to play movies

    I have a v4 and I think dvd-rw just works on v5 and higher.

    A dvd-r will play on a ps2 but it depends on which ps2 version it is , my nephews plays my dvd-r and it doesn't have any mod chips but my brothers doesn't they are diffrent versions !
