    Would anyone know why I can play my backed up ps2 games but I can't play backed up DVD movies ? I always get a "Disc Read Error" when ever I try to play the DVD. They work fine in my computer and the original movie works fine in the PS2. Is there a special format (Best Results) for burning DVD movies so they are compatible with PS2. My friend's PS2 plays movies fine. Mine can play everything but backup movies.

    if you have a modchip installed,try this

    put on standby(red light)

    press and hold eject for at least 3 seconds

    insert dvd

    press eject to close

    this will put the ps2 in dvd mode,however if they are imports you will need dvd region X to turn your player into multi region

    No I don't have a mod chip, I am using swap magic 3.3. Do you guys have any suggestions ? Do I need to burn it with a region 2 code ?

    are you trying to load it with swap magic? If so, you don't need to.

    No I'm not trying to load it with swap magic. I am just trying to play it like a regular movie except it is a backup. It does not want to recognize the backup movies for some reason. And when it does find them, and I try to play the movie in the title screen, it will say "Unable to read disc". The back up games play flawless on the PS2 though and I am using the same media to burn them on.
