    are they original games or backups? if a backup you will need something to boot it up, modchip, swapmagic, etc...

    also if backup what media are you using and what speed did you burn at?

    It means your ps2 laser maybe about to pack in as in not work at all, the 1st sign off a bad ps2 laser is it not reading cretin things then b4 you know it won’t read anything anymore, I’ve been through 3 ps2's in 2 years. Do you get the “disc read error”?

    Cant remember the model. Sony wanted me to pay for them to fix it, something like £50, it would have been cheaper to buy a new laser off the net.

    Lol. I took my warrant sticker out so i dont think i can return it. Hey but after sony fixes it, would it still break in the future? What do you suggest let sony fix it or buy new lens. I just want my PS2 to play without worrying if the lens will break one day

    Well Viet.. you solved your own problem...lol... I've done that with a SNES before,.... I had a friend do that with a game for NES long time ago, He bought a game he wanted and took it home, took out the card and put it in his lil sisters crappy ass game and then put the old card in the new cart. and returned it... He did that at a couple video rentals too.....Ahh those were the good ole days...lol

    I've recently bought a new PS2 to replace my old one, but the old one still works.

    Get this!

    If I leave the PS2 in the horizontal position, it will only read CD format, if I put in in the vertical position, it only reads DVD format. Go figure.

    Before throwing it out over a "disc read error", try flipping from vertical to horizontal & vice-versa.

    Just thought I'd let you guys know.
