My PS2 will play one game (GTA Vice City) out of three games that I own. One of the three games is scratched to death but bought from cEX however the second game is virtually scratchless and works on my friend's PS2 just not mine so I don't know what the problem is.

My issue (although I'm sure the solution is to just get a new ps2)
My PlayStation was running fine until about a year ago. I played the game Kingdom hearts with no issues, then one day I thought it would be fun to start a new file. So I did, and now it glitches at a specific part in the game (if anyone is familiar with the game it glitches when you try to leave traverse town to go on the gummi ship for the first time). I thought it might be a scratch on my disk, so I bought another KH disk (a black label just in case the problem persisted so it wouldn't be a waste of money considering my first copy was the greatest hits version) but that one glitches at the same spot too. I'm guessing the PlayStation just can't handle certain graphics or whatever anymore. I'm guessing my solution is to get a new one, and in that case how should I go about it ? Like I'm thinking I want as late as a model as possible (2013 release ideally). And also a slim or fat?

Hi guys,

I just thought you guys here could help me with a little situation I have at the moment.

I have a PS2, fat model, SPCH 39001, NTSC U/C, with a mod chip that I don't know which (It doesn't tell me anywhere on the menu, it does not have any particular menu, nothing.). Recently, in an urge to play some old PS1 games, I downloaded an .iso and burned it in a CD.
The thing is, the console reads it just fine, but the screen is completely off-center, with black bars in the top and left, and part of the game not showing on screen. I read everywhere this could be a PAL/NTSC incompability, so I made two more CDs, one with a PAL, and one with a sure NTSC version. The NTSC one remained with the error, and the PAL too, but not too off-screen (still unplayable, though).
I tried then to clean the lens, which I did very carefully, but with no sucess in solving the error.

My PS2 never gave me problems reading any kind of CDs or DVDs. And the error is only occuring with this particular game (which is now the one I'm crazy about, just because I can't play it =P). It reads my others PS1 discs just fine, and the PS2 games too.

Do you guys have any idea of what this may be? It can't be the .iso, since I downloaded three different ones to test, using different media to burn, in different PCs. Thanks in advance!

Ok. So, I bought a cleaning disk and ran it through both my computer superdrive and through my Playstation. I bought some new blank DVDs, -R this time and of a different brand (Sony, it was all that Walmart carries besides the Memorex). I re-installed iDVD on my computer. I set the burn speed to only 2x, and I made sure I had all other programs closed while burning and did not play with the computer while burning. I used Professional quality setting in iDVD.
Now, for Results: out of three dvds that I burned (always giving plenty of time for the drive to cool off and "rest") One dvd did not work at all, even on the regular dvd player. The other two disks played well enough on playstation and on regular dvd player but only for about the first ten minutes or so. Then the movie froze and could not be coaxed past the freezing point.
One clue to the problem is that it might be iDVD the software itself. I noticed that the project in idvd goes through all the phases just fine until it comes to multiplexing and burning. I haven't seen an error message but an interesting thing happens near the end of burning. The dialogue box says done at the bottom and the loading bar is full, but then below that it still says "about one minute left" and the little burning icon wheel is still spinning like it's not finished. The disk ejects. When you go to close the box it asks, "are you sure you want to cancel or continue burning the disk anyway?" That "anyway" seems suspicious to me...I tried pushing the disk back in and hitting "continue burning anyway" there is some noise and then after a moment the computer pops the disk out again with the same message as before.

I mostly use my ps2 to play burned DVD movies. I have burned several movies on memorex DVD+rs and they worked before and still do, but, now, all of a sudden, no new DVDs that i make will play. Im using the same dvds and burning them the same way, with the same software, but now i get the disc read error message on my ps2. I can't think of what I'm doing differently. I've re-installed the software on my computer and the DVDs work on my regular DVD player. My ps2 is version 10 so it is able to play +R/-R. I am just wondering what could be causing this?? Obviously it's not the DVD brand, my computer's DVD burner DOES work, and the ps2 still plays the old DVDs that I burned. This doesn't make sense to me!
Try cleaning the laser lens in the PS2. A DVD/CD cleaning disk will work. If you have a slim PS2 then you can also clean the laser lens manually with a microfiber cloth, or a cotton swab + rubbing alcohol.

Hi
I burned a ps2 game (that i downloaded) and after 7 hours of playing the ps2 started to make strange noises (every time i entered specific place) after couple of times he stopped doing that noise but the background music stopped too. Then i tried to load a save in this game and the loading screen stayed for 5 minuets so i turned of the sonny and now it's not reading discs at all. When i power on its make that noise again and if i eject i see that the disc didn't spin at all (if i wait and not eject its spinning but the game doesn't work
and when i power on i have the normal "matrix" screen and than strange screen (black and something that look like sound wave in music programs in the middle colored white from the inside and blue top and bottom) for a half sec and than it starts regularly like if there aren't any disc inside
And that happens even if there aren't any discs in (the noise and the opening screen)

It's not the first time i play game that i download and it never happened to me.
i use this ps2 5-6 years.

tnx for the help
