    Hi i'm new to all this but i have a quick question. My ps2 wont read DVD-R backup movies and it wont play any games that are in CD-Rom format. DOes that mean even if i get my ps2 modded, it still wont play backup DVD-R games? Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
    Anthony

    yeah they work fine with my other dvd players. I used DVD shrink and DVD decrypter to burn them. Does other people's ps2 usually play DVD-R backup movies? and does that mean i wont be able to play any DVD-R backup games since my ps2 cant read them even if i get my ps2 modded?
    thanks again

    yes, all ps2's should read backup dvd-r movies. You didn't tell me what brand media you used.

    Sorry, i used Fujifilm DVD-R.
    The thing is my ps2 never was able to read DVD-R backup movies even when i first got it. Should i call up sony headquarters and ask them whats wrong with my ps2?
    thanks again

    i've tried R+ and it wont work too. my question is, is it necessary for my ps2 to play DVD backup movies in order to mod it to play backup DVD games? Cos i've heard from different sources that some said it's not necessary and some said its a must. I just dont want to end up modding my ps2 and find out it doesnt work.

    yes, it is necessary. Sell it on ebay and buy a brand new premodded ps2.
