    PS2 games are actually pressed DVD/CD discs, they are not burned. PS2 games use the Burst Cutting Area (BCA) of the disc to identify themselves to the PS2 unit. The BCA is not part of a disc that you can burn on, it is only replicated on pressed discs.

    So, the only way to play backups is to get boot-discs or a mod-chip.

    No matter what version ps2 is still the same.

    For boot-discs go here ----------> www.swapmagic3.com

    How about you check the link I gave you?

    What is Swap Magic?

    Swap Magic boot disks has been designed with one purpose in mind - booting backups/import games. In the Swap Magic 3.6 Plus package, there are two discs. One disc is for booting CD-R games, and another is for booting DVD-R games.
    In short, the procedure for booting a backup with Swap Magic is like this:
    1. Insert a Swap Magic Disc in your PlayStation2 (CD is for booting CD backups/import games. DVD versionis for booting DVD backups/import games)
    2. When there are two options(Load Program and Video Mode)on the screen, that is the time to swap the disc
    3. Use Flip Top Cover or Slide-Tool to eject the CD tray
    4. Insert your CD or DVD backup
    5. Use Flip Top Cover or Slide-Tool to put the CD tray back
    6. Press X on joy pad and the game will start
