    Thats what i thought,but this one just gives me an disk error.I have tried various PS1 disks.
    The model number is SCPH-39003 and it is an old fat one.

    Try cleaning your laser lens with Rubbing Alcohol and a q-tip

    Dip the q-tip in the Rubbing Alcohol, but not so its dripping, clean in a circular motion, gently but firmly for about 30 secs

    Using the dry end of q-tip, dry the laser in the same manner.

    A lot of PS2 lasers get old and will still read DVD, but not CD as well, or vice versa.

    Sometimes just a cleaning can prolong the laser that much longer.
