    I have a game iso, and am looking to burn it to a "sony DVD+RW" disk. I was wondering if this is compatible with a playstation, considering my PS2 runs DVD+R and DVD-R's without any problems.

    All help is greatly appreciated.

    i did the search for u.

    Serial Number on rear of machine begins with:

    version 1 = serial number (refer to yellow rectangle in right of image) start with "U1" and has 10 case screws.

    version 2 = serial number (refer to yellow rectangle in right of image) start with "U0" and has 10 case screws.

    version 3 = serial number (refer to yellow rectangle in right of image) start with "U2" and has 10 case screws.

    version 4 = serial number (refer to yellow rectangle in right of image) start with 'U3' 'U4' 'U5' or a 'U6' and has a total of 8 case screws.

    version 5 = model number contains the letter 'R' (refer to the red rectangle in right side of image) at the end (example SCPH-30001 R).

    version 7 = 3900X is the new PS2 Version 7

    Once you have esatblished what version you have, examine the limitations using this chart:

    Version 1 - Basic playstation 1&2 Games no dvd-r,dvd-rw compatability, NO DVD+R, NO DVD+RW COMPATABILITY

    Version 2 - Basic playstation 1&2 Games dvd-r,dvd-rw compatability, NO DVD+R, NO DVD+RW COMPATABILITY

    Version 3 - Basic playstation 1&2 Games dvd-r, compatability, NO DVD+R, NO DVD-RW,NO DVD+RW COMPATABILITY

    Version 4 - Basic playstation 1&2 Games dvd-r compatability, NO DVD-RW, NO DVD+R, NO DVD+RW COMPATABILITY

    Version 5 - Basic playstation 1&2 Games dvd-r compatability, MILD DVD-RW, MILD DVD+R, MILD DVD+RW COMPATABILITY

    SECOND GENERATION PS2
    VERSION 7 - (SECOND GENERATION PS2) Basic playstation 1&2 Games DVD+R,DVD+RW,DVD-R,DVD+RW compatability

    The reason you can play dvd+,- ANYTHING is due to the fact that sony has implimented a new laser on the console that is more acurate then it's previous models.

    If you want version 4 to read DVD-r, gotta buy the official stupid DVD remote, and use the CD that comes with it to Update the BIOS.

    I have a v7 ps2 and a verbatim DVD+RW
    When I burn a movie on the DVD+RW the playstation reads it fine.
    But when I tried burning a ps2 game on it doesn't boot. (Using SM DVD 2.0)
    Is it the media? Or my ps2 won't boot +RW games?

    yeah but i know that if you change the pod screw in the laser you can get your PS2 to read most discs.

    i had a thread already saying how to do it and what sites to go to if you wanted to find out more
