    I just scanned my PS2 DVD back-ups (which don't work) with DVDINFOPro v2.00 and that popped up.

    Does anyone know what it means?

    Early versions of PS2 cannot play +r media......

    I think upto version 4 were unable to play +r, however some of the later version 4 were able to.....

    Have a look at the playstation 2 forum......you will probably get a more detailed response but I am sure your version 2 will not play the +r media.....

    I know this does not help.....sorry.......
