    Hello to all.I've just started backing up my dvd games and something must have gone wrong.Ive read many posts in the forums but i cant find something that might solve the problem with my backups
    I have an old (i guess) ps2 modded and was using action replay 2 .The type of the ps2 is scph-30004 and the serial is c 1.....
    As backup dvds i use nero 6 and alcohol 120 and for dvd-r i used maxell.
    Now for the symptoms my ps2 have.The discs are not recognisable (dvd) although i can play cd-r games with not problems (except one or two).My older ps1 games backups are not loading and the thing that made me curious is that dvd movies backups are not loading either.The originals are all working (movies and games).Can somebody help or suggest something ?Does my ps2 dont recognise dvd backups no matter game or movie?Any help is most appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hey im pretty sure that your lazer is dirty. Clean it or or buy a new lazer. This is what your problem is.

    Well i cleaned it up still nothing.its weird because it can read original dvd games original dvd movies original ps1 games copied ps2 games(cd format) and it stucks in backups dvd games and dvd movies.I searched in the web as to the forums and adjusted the lence with no better results.Still the same effects.Do you use a perticular brand of dvd to backup?Are there any silver blanks dvd as the games?

    that weird. All dvd-r are purple on the bottom. I use different brands like TDK, Fugifilm, Sony, Sony would be best, i really dont like Fugifilm had alot of problems. Do you have a modchip installed? or do you use swap disk?

    i have a modchip and using action replay 2.In another forum says that theres a possibility my playstion laser cant read dvd-r.If theres the problem ill guess ill have to buy a new one (damn!!!).If the cost of maybe changing the laser is too high ill buy a new (used perhaps)

    WHY ARE YOU USING ACTIONREPLAY? I DONT USE THAT. WHAT MODCHIP DO YOU HAVE? LAZER COST AROUND $30-40
