You may need to take apart you PS2 and rotate the white gear about 1/8 of a turn or so and test with just the DVD lid on before you put it back together. If you still get the error try another 1/8 of a turn and so on. Detailed instructions and pictures can be found here on how to take apart your PS2

SOURCE: my ps2 screen says 'insert a playstation or a ps2 format disc

The problem is that this code is generic and not real specific. It used to happen to me all the time. It could mean that the disc is dirty or scratched, the lens needs cleaning or it could mean that your PS2 is being stupid not wanting to read the disc. If the disc is dirty just take some eye glass cleaner and wipe from the center to the outer edge of the disc. If it is scratched, you can take it in to be resurfaced. This usually cost about five dollars. A lens cleaner is about the same depending on where you go. You may want to invest in a can of air duster. Somtimes the dust inside it makes it go haywire.

SOURCE: Playstation 2 not reading disc

Are you using a real game disk or are you using a burned disk? If its burned you need a MOD chip for it. If its real then try to open up the PS2 and try to clean the lens gently with a q-tip. It helped me a couple of times.

SOURCE: please insert a playstation or ps2 format disc

Hi,
This problem actually related to the region change.For this problem you have to install a modification chip in your PS2 console after that it will play all your games according to your region.
For this you have to contact any expert nearby to you.
Thanks

A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)

Best bet is to try a laser lens cleaner and seeing if that helps. I know it sounds silly that it might be dust on the lens when only THOSE games don't work, but stranger things have happened.

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Want to play god of war 3


God of War 3 has been announced, but hasn't been released yet. It has been announced for PS3, not PS2. It will not be compatible with your system. If you want to play it, you will have to purchase a PS3.

New game won't play.


the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
