Re: I need to make my ps2 ntsc u/c so I can play rockband
After much research there seems to be a compatiility problem with any ps2 that is not a 9000 series(the silver one), a couple of people had said that they cleaned the laser optic with alcohol and a qtip but in most cases if that works the drums still wont work for some reason. I will have to return the game back to best buy because I am not going to buy another ps2 with ntsc compatibility. Activision apparently knew of this problem that most ps2 owners would face and chose to release the game with out any warning etc.... I suggest taking in back to the retailer as many other are doing and maybe Activision will get the message.

I assume you bought a PS2 game that works on your PS2 system but not on your PS3 system since a PS3 game will never work on a PS2.
Since not all PS3 systems can play PS2 games, you need to first check the model number of your PS3 system. If you look at the back of your PS3, there should be a serial number somewhere that starts with "CECH", followed by one more letter and a couple numbers (e.g. "CECHC02"). Unless the model number starts with "CECHA", "CECHB", "CECHC", or "CECHE", you won't be able to play PS2 games on your PS3.
If your PS3 can play PS2 games, then you need to make sure that the region of the PS2 game matches the region of your PS3. The region of the PS2 game can be found in the upper-right corner of the front of the box the game came in. The four regions are: "NTSC U/C", "NTSC J", "NTSC C", and "PAL".
Once you know the model number of the PS3 and the region of the PS2 game, you can tell if the PS2 game should work on the PS3. Use the following chart to determine if your game and system are compatible:
Last two digits of your PS3 model number: Playable PS2 game region 00: NTSC J 01: NTSC U/C 02: PAL 03: PAL 04: PAL 05: NTSC J 06: NTSC J 07: NTSC J 08: PAL 09: NTSC C 11: NTSC U/C 12: NTSC J
It means that the PS2 can't read the disc. Playstation 2s in the US are NTSC, while those in the UK are PAL. PAL discs can not be played on an NTSC PS2, and NTSC discs can not be played on a PAL console. This is because the consoles are region-locked and you can only play games from the region the PS2 itself was sold in.
if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also
the disk may be damaged , If it has the smallest scratch or smudge on the disk the ps2 will not play it. is it the slim or older ps2 ? if it continues to freeze I would return it as damaged. There should really no reason for it freezing unless it has a damaged disk or your PS2 needs cleaned or repaired. Hope this helps and I hope you get it up and going.
Take it to Gamestop or somewhere they repaired disc i know it maynot be sratch but i read online and goggle i found somewhere they took it there and they try to play it it works but here is my pre. solution i'll be doing more research k
