    If you want to play copied DVD games you have to have a modchip in your PS2 that boots DVD-copies.
    If it's a movie normally it will play even without a mod (if it won't I don't know what the prob is..)

    A DVD-R backup Movie will play in a PS2 without a modchip, a game will not as stated above. What do you mean by "cuts out" is the PS2 resetting or the audio cuts out? Is the movie an original or backup, if a backup what method was used? Dexter

    If you are trying to play a DVD movie, is your PS2 connected through a VCR? The VCR makes the copy protection kick in and will not let a DVD play properly. If this is the case, try connecting the PS2 directly to the TV.

    You can play direct dvd movie copies in a ps2 without chipping and without any type of swapping?

    Hello, My cable goes to the vcr then to back of tv, ps2 plugs into the front of tv. You switch tv to game to play.
    Hooked up this way will the vcr affect dvd play?
