    I have read loads of post with peeps asking why original dvds wont work or ps1 originals wont work. The reply always seems to be "oh youve gotta put your ps2 in dvd mode, or ps1 mode" what is this, and how do you do it?

    On a Magic 3.1 chip you can do this by holding the power/reset button down until the blue eject light appears. This will instruct the mod chip not to broadcast the PS2 boot code allowing PS1 games and DVD movies to run properly as how they do not need the PS2 boot code in order to run.

    The Messiah 2 disables much the same way. Hold the power/reset button down for an additional 5 seconds after the blue eject light appears. Will you unit read anything or is it just a problem with backups, originals, DVD's, CD's, etc.?

    I've never heard of that problem. Seem to me that if DVD game backups are working properly then you're burning them properly and DVD movies burned using the same technique should work as well.

    Are your burned DVD movies playable in the same region as your PS2? I don't believe the Messiah 2 allows you to play multi-region.
