Here's what I did to fix the same problem on my PS2 (Slim model # SCPH-70012). This should work for all models of PS2's. (Slim or Fat). Sony says all models can read a dual layer disc. If the fix doens't work then you need to send in your PS2 for service.

1) Start up the PS2 with no disc in it.
2) Highlight the 'Browser' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
3) Highlight the 'Console' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
4) Highlight the Diagnostics menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'ON'.
5) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
6) Highlight the 'PlaystationDrive' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
7) Highlight the 'Disc Speed' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'FAST'.
8) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
9) Turn off your PS2.

10) This step is optional.......I blew into the main unit to loosen any dust out of it and then carefully used my shirt to wipe across the lens at the back of the drive. I'm not sure if this mattered or not. Since I did this in conjuction with the above steps I can't say if this is needed.
11) Insert the disc and turn the PS2 back on. The diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I was amazed! Mine loaded right up after several previous days of nothing.

12) I checked the settings after the initial load and the Diagnostics and Drive speed reset to normal so it must be a one time run thing. My game has loaded everytime since and I haven't had to re-do the settings at all.

I hope this works for you too!!

i had the exact same problem. the original ps2 doesnt have "up to date" hardware in it, so sometimes there are disks that it cant read. what you have to do is take it to the place where you bought it and ask for a different disk. they may give you a hassle, so be prepared to push through with your argument that "the customer is always right"

Guitar Hero/My PS2


HI Fireinside,

Sony PS2 games come is 3 or 4 different formats. Some of the formats require the Disc to spin at near the limits of the spindle drive motor. I have not run the Guitar hero game, so I am not sure which format it is. I know that the Discs with Blue colored media need to run at a very fast speed, and this gives Some PS2 consoles trouble when they have some lint, string, or Animal hair wrapped up in the spindle motor. Yes, it is a common problem. You have to open the PS2 and look under the motor that turns the disc to see if you have an obstruction.

If you are not comfortable with doing this kind of repair, please contact me at Repairtech@Playstationclinic.com to arrange to get it repaired for a reasonable fee. This is usually less than $35 including return shipping. If we did work out a deal for repairing your PS2, I would ask you to send the Guitar Hero disc for me to try and be sure we go you what you needed. Good luck.
