New ps2 game won't play on older ps2 game console. Help!?

Brand new game (Dynasty Warriors 6) won't play on older ps2 game console. Game console about 6 years old, in good shape. All other new games are working fine, all older games working fine, plays ps1 and ps2 without a problem. Exchanged with replacement game, still won't play. Says "Disk error". Any ideas on how to fix? Or am I just stuck not being able to play this one game?

You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.

I turn on the play station 2 and the both buttons on it turn on and it is getting power to it but can;t or won;t play the game, why is this?


The laser has worn out. It's a pretty common problem with the PS2s after time. Since you refer to 'both buttons,' it sounds like you have an older PS2.

New lasers for this one are still available, but a bit expensive. The following website sells NEW ones for $49. I would stay away from refurbished or used lasers:

PS 2 new and old games keep freezing


It needs a new laser... it's a pretty common issue with older PS2s. The lasers simply eventually wear out after time. You can get a new laser for the older PS2s at the following website:

How do you set up playstation 3 to play playstation 2 games


One Surefire WayThe only way how to play PS2 games on PS3 is to have the correct version of the console. Either your Playstation 3 can play PS and PS2 games or it can’t, and there’s not much to do about it. Most of the PS3 models simply cannot play older titles as they lack the necessary hardware and firmware. However, a few models do have backwards compatibility. The 20 Gb, 60 Gb, and original 80 Gb models all have backwards compatibility, either through hardware or software emulation. The other models lack backwards compatibility, so even knowing how to play PS2 games on PS3 won’t help you out much here.
However, if you do have the correct console model, then there isn’t much to know for learning how to play PS2 games on PS3. Simply insert the game CD or DVD (many original Playstation games are also supported thankfully), and the game will start up. Sometimes, it will tell you that you can’t play the game, but simply hook your PS3 up via wireless or ethernet connection and update the firmware (which also provides improved compatibility with newer versions of Blu-ray discs). Often, this will fix the problems, but not all PS and PS2 games are supported (although most are).
There you have it. Learning how to play PS2 games on PS3 is easy, but if you just randomly picked a Playstation 3 model out at your local retailer, you might have a model lacking in backwards compatibility. One reason they didn’t include such compatibility with all models is an issue of cost, as it saved Sony some money to not include such a feature on all of the models. When they first started selling PS3s for $400, they were losing several hundred dollars (although they are at least breaking even now). Unfortunately, both the new 80 Gb and 160 Gb PS3 models are lacking in such compatibility, so you’ll need to find older models to support your older games.

Please rate my solutions! =)
