Hey all. Lately I've been noticing that my PS2 has been skipping while playing games. I notice this most with backups but it has been doing this with original disks as well (although not as much). As far as burning the games go I am doing that right. I have tried the same disks that skip on friends' systems and they work fine. So far I have opened the PS2 and cleaned the lens with some rubbing alcohol hoping that would work. It didn't do much as my PS2 is almost perfectly clean to begin with. I was wondering what other kinds of things would cause games to skip on a PS2. Anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this and how to fix them?
