PS2 disc reading

Certain games on my PS2 won't play, either saying loading for ever or just a blank screen. I don't think its the discs as one is brand new. I've tried a cleaning disc but no change. Any ideas?

Use a q-tip and rubbing alcohol to clean the lens.if you don't have a slim ps2 that will involve opening the ps2.it's not that hard really,works every time.

My ps2 is makeing a werd sound when reading dice


It's not able read the disc - try cleaning the disc, try another disc, etc to narrow down the problem. If it won't play any discs either the lens is dirty or an actual hardware failure in the unit.

I want to play duplicate dvds on my ps2 but i am not able to do what should i do can i do it at home


  1. If you have backed up a game for ps2, you're going to need a mod chip or swap magic for your ps2 so it can read the disc, so first things first, BUY A MODIFICATION TOOL!!!
  2. 2You should try using Swap Magic, because it's the easiest, and you won't need to modify your PlayStation too much.
  3. 3But if you use SWAP MAGIC, you will also need a special mod chip, SLIDE TOOL, or a FLIP TOP COVER, you can learn more about those on the swapmagic website
  4. 4Read directions on the installation of mod chip, and swap magic before you do anything (you don't want to mess up, or else your ps2 won't work properly).
  5. 5Install your modchip/flip top cover/slide tool. (This is important, because it allows the disc to be removed and "swapped" without the PlayStation knowing).
  6. 6Follow directions that came with your swap magic discs, and you're basically ready to go!
  7. 7HOW TO USE SWAP MAGIC,Note you must have Swap magic 3.6 to boot on slimline ps2 and you need to do a none solder modding(no soldering)

Purchase a flip top (recommended). Let's assume you have the flip top and a copied ps2 game
  1. 1Now Insert the swap magic disc into the ps2,
  2. 2Press power on button until screens comes up.
    • With option that says load cd open the top cover of the flip top.
    • And take out the cd when it stops spinning.
  3. 3Now insert your Copied game and click Load CD.
  4. 4its that easy

Formatting


Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.
