    Hello, does the PS2 play DVD movie backups without a mod? I know it should, but I need to know for sure. The reason I ask is that I have a US V1 PS2, and as we all know V1's cant read DVD+R. So, I ordered a new laser from a website and was guaranteed 3 different times that it would read DVD+R. I got the laser, installed it, and tried 4 diferent movie backups but none worked. I know the new laser works because I tried it with original PS2 games, but it wont read my DVD+R movie backups. The same 4 backups DO work in other standalone DVD players but not the PS2. Could it be the media? I tried TDK and Verbatim. If anyone knows what I should do, please help.


    Thanks

    What? Movie backups wont work on a un-modded
    PS2? Why not? It's not like they need to be force booted like game backups !

    What proof do you have?

    Back up DVD's do work on an unmodded system. I have plenty of back up DVD movies and i play them on my v.7 unmodded ps2 all the time. I am using ritek DVD-r though. I told you that it was odd that they said it would play DVD+r. Its just a new laser of the original old one you had. It doesnt do something the original doesnt, its just new.

    Thats just great!!! They gaurenteed it would work, so they better take it back !

    However, it does have different numbers on the sticker than my old laser? And another thing, with the new laser I get a disc read error. With the old one I just got the red screen.

    I tried to play a dvd movie backup on my non-modded V4 ps2 last night with no luck. I am using ritek media and nero to burn.

    can the older versions play backups without a mod chip?

    if not, will they play them once modded?
    -thanks a lot for the info,
    -jeff
