    Dear all, I just bought my PS2 a month ago. Before that, it can played original and backup DVD games. But now it's only can play original DVD games. When I insert the backup DVD games, the screen show "Please insert PS2 formatted disc"
    Can anyone help me here??

    Check your chip and see if it has a loose wire.
    Or has your chip got a boot sequence where you have to hold in the power button for 3 secs or so?

    What chip you got?

    Thanks matty8887..My chip is Magic but I don know what version?? My console model is SCPH-50002.
    Regarding to "Or has your chip got a boot sequence where you have to hold in the power button for 3 secs or so?" issues, I am intresting on this. Can u explain how it work by hold down reset button.
    But my problem is before that I can play backup DVD games by just insert and press reset once. There is no any boot sequence needed. After that, it cannot play backup DVD games at all even I switch off and start it again.

    1 more question.. If I accidently hold in the power button for 3 secs, can I reset it back as usual or just switch off the console and start it again? OR i need to follow some procedure to get it back to normal mode??
