    no, any DVD burner SHOULD read your PS2 game as a disc. They you just use something like DVD Decrypter or Alcohol 120% to read it and make the ISO

    you can try updating the firmware, but i have had 2 standard DVD burners (Sony & BenQ)and both of them could read a original PS2 disc just fine without having to do anything. have you tried a program like DVD Decrypter to see if that would read the disc?

    weird, i guess Memorex makes DVD burners that are of the same high standards as their DVD discs. Meaning that they suck.
    I suggest you go get a better burner then, like a Pioneer, NEC, or BenQ. And you might as well get one that can booktype while your at it as that is a really nice things to be able to do (with DVD+R media only)
