    I have recently bought a dvd recorder. I have used both DVD+R and DVD+rw to recod on. Each time I put them in the ps2 i get "disc read error". Is there a way round it, or is it just not possible. My copies work on all other dvd players. Does it need a boot disc or chip?

    My PS2 only reads DVD-R. It won't read DVD+R/+-RW. The newer models may play +R.

    what version is your ps2? It should read copied dvd movies without a mod. If it is an older ps2 (v1-3, some 4) it won't read +R.

    I looked at this site...http://www.xteammods.com/forum/showthread.php?s=c4c1e11c35def7961ec6d462ba3871b0&threadid=8
    and it sounds like you have a version 4 ps2. The description you gave your ps2 fits the description on the web page the most.
