    I have a PS2 slim and it reads all my games but 3.

    I have tried various coloured discs: the blue, silver and black.
    I have tried both CD and DVD based games.
    I have tried the 3 games that won't work on another PS2 and they worked.

    So the 3 games work on another PS2, the PS2 doesn't seem to be ruling out any particular type of disc that I am aware of and I have tried adjusting the DVD laser pot to the recommended range of 950-970R. But it still doesn't want to run.

    The only form of success I have had is when I changed the disc speed to fast it ran Spy Vs. Spy once, but after turning it off and on again it no longer worked.

    In case it helps the 3 games that won't run are: Gran Turismo 4, Spy Vs. Spy and Midnight Club 3 DUB edition remix. They are all DVD games and silver.

    If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Make sure if you messed with the PS2 laser, that you set it back to where it worked for all games but these three.

    More importantly than color of disk, what brand are they.

    What program are you using to burn? I always use imgburn and burn at 4x for PS2 games. I usually used Verbatim, Sony and I used DVD -R..
    Do you get Disc Read error? or what exactly is the issue.

    What mod are you using to play backups?
