    The prolem being that ps2's dont like rw media, it may work in a dvd player but it will not work in a ps2. Some versions of ps2's will read +r media and maybe certain types of +rw or -rw media but it is very limited.

    Have you tried to clean the optic in the PS2, may just be a little dusty.........

    Also it maybe that your PS2 laser is going a little 'weak', you will find inforamtion on google to 'tweak it' if that is the case............

    The fact that it spins for a while then stops suggests it cannot focus properly, this is attributed to one of the above...............

    Depending on the version of PS2, yes they do have issues with rw media, I think version 4 and earlier have those issues, however if they have played previously I would assume you have a later version.

    Have you tried transferring the info on that rw to a standard -r disc, I would try that, as -r are more forgiving on the laser.........

    2 options:1- get a cd/dvd disc cleaner disk
    2- take drive apart & use a q-tip & alcohol

    There goes the longest sentences in the world! Do you ever take a breath when you speak. Or is everything just garbled.

    Seriously, it is really difficult to read some of the posts here.

    I would love to help but then I got rather crosseyed trying to make sense of wot people are trying to say all in one go without having to take a breath or pause or puctuate making it really hard to make any sense of without the need for a machine to decipher what the hell is going on my brain cannot cope with any more my head is now spinning round & round with all the nonsense my head hurts I will have to stop in a minute before I get all confused.
