    Are these the original PS2 games or are these DVD copies ?
    And if so: what modchip ?
    I myself have a copy of FIFA2003 and plays fine.

    I have a similar problem but mine has now decided to stop reading dvds altogether!!!! doh

    the problem is the laser eye it is a known problem with older model ps2's, they can be fixed but it ain't cheap about £70

    I decided to sell my faulty one on ebay and buy a new pre-chipped ps/2. Hope this helps

    Disk read error? Problems reading dvd/cd/whatever?

    Don't send it in the get fixed, fix it yourself!
    Just take it apart, take the cover of the cd drive off, clean it with a q-tip and alcahol and put it back together.
    Here's a guide http://www.geocities.com/vulcanraven29/AoTW-DRE_2.html


    Takes 10 mins and really no risk to your system.

    It can be several things. A bad laser, a dirty laser lens, or the laser needs adjustment for reading cds/dvds(this is not advised for people who have not done this type of adjustment before, you could end up ruining your laser).
