As some of you may know from my previous posts, I have a V1 PS2 and a +R burner. Since I have a V1 I either needed to get a new PS2 or try to find a new laser. I chose to get a new laser. I found a place, http://www.vdo-specialties.com/ ,that guarenteed me 3 times that the new laser would read +R media. They sent it, and I installed it without a problem. Now, since it is un-modded for now, I could only test it with my +R movie backups (which later on i'm told isnt true). I have 3 movie backups that work perfectly in stand-alone DVD players, so I know the media is good. I tried all 3 in the PS2 with the new laser, and they didnt work. So, for the next few days I fought with www.vdo-specialties.com about them lieing to me and they completely denied ever gaurenteing it. Well, they finally agreed to send my money back as long as the laser still works. Well, in a last stupid e-mail, I told them what I assumed they knew all along. I said that my PS2 is currently un-modded and that cause of that I could only test +R movie backups. They sent me mail back saying "How could you have accused us of lieing when you dont even have it modded yet"? They also said "You have to mod it to play ANY backups, including movies"! So now, i'm saying to myself, "What the hell, there are tons of people on this forum that play movie backups without a mod". Now I look stupid to them for thinking what all you people are claiming. Is it only +R movie backups that require a mod? If anyone wants me to paste every mail me and www.vdo-specialties.com sent back to each other for more of a complete story tell me. For now here is the last thing they said to me- YOU EVEN CANNOT PLAY MOVIE BACKUPS WITH OUT A MODIFIED PS2!!!! NOW WE KNOW YOUR PROBLEM, AND I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU YELLED AT US FOR NOTHING!!!! YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!! YOU THINK A MOVIE COPY IS GOING TO PLAY??? HA HA-HA!!! IT DON'T UNLESS THERE STILL IS A MODCHIP IN THERE!!!!!
