Hey guys I think I may know my answer but would like some more input. First of all my ps2 is an older version I am pretty the number starts with 3, it was bought on the first day they were available in the states. With action replay version 2 I use disc 2 (ps one disc) and can load playstation 1 backup games with no problem at all. With the 1 disc (ps2 disc) I can load backup ps2 games that ARE CD based. However when I try to do the dvd based games I get nothing. It just hangs at the insert your disk screen on action replay. Now for the ones that work I load up action replay then do the knife trick. I use dvd decryptor, alocohol 120 and nero without any luck at all. I have tried dvd-r (memorex) and dvd+r ridata but just cant get the dvd's to load. I have a hp 530i recorder which will do dvd -+r. I have made a copy of a movie I have and it worked great on my ps2 and dvd player. I made this with -r media however I also tried +r and it worked with my ps2. Could my problem be that action replay version 2 just wont boot dvd based games?
