    ok i have an apple modded ps2...i have no problem playing cd backups. Just recently tried some dvd backups....nothing...just that damn please insert a ps2 format disc screen. I've tried + and -R media, tried record now max and alcohol 120. I sent my ps2 to some dude in wisconsin to mod it....it took forever, i paid too much and the guy was a dick....anyone think its possibe that he installed a different chip or a bad chip that may not work for dvd backups?

    All chips work for DVD back ups. The chip seems to be okay if you are able to play CD back ups. It could be only 2 things.

    1. He muffed the installation on the DVD controller points

    2. Your laser is weak and can't read DVD-r.

    Check and see if you can read DVD originals.

    Reads dvd originals just fine....one more question.....if i bought a flip top or slide card with GS/AR/Boot would the botched chip install have any effect on the swaping of dvd backups?

    If DVD originals work fine but it wont read back ups then either your burning them wrong(which I doubt) or you laser is just too weak and may need some adjusting. In which case no AR/GS or swap disc would help at all. What version ps2 is it?
