My Resident evil 2 doesnt work anymore. I have the playstation 1 version and it stopped working in my ps2. When i put it in, it just makes a skipping sound and after about a minute it returns to the...

this isn't my area of expertise but if you really wish to play resident evil, go on and go to emulators, choose a psx emulator and then download it then you can download any ps1 roms like resident evil and play them for free on your computer. it doesn't take a powerful computer, these games will run on an iphone 3g, leave a good rating if this helps

So i would recommend doing so

Long Loads and Lagging

A couple things come to mind. If the lens is dirty, then there will certainly be issues with load times, or load failure. Check your game discs for scratches and scuffs. If a disc has a scratch or too many scuffs on it, it will make it difficult for the laser to read.
Clean your discs, and clean your ps2 lens with a basic ps2 laser cleaning kit. You should be able to find them anywhere.
I don't recommend cleaning the lens without a kit if you are not familiar with the internals of a PS2 or cleaning electronic components. If after cleaning your disc and lens it still gives you issues, there is an angle adjustment gear in the ps2, but we'll cross that bridge only if the cleaning doesn't work.

Disc Reading Problem

If the problem happens with more than one disk , then it is probably the PS2 lens , that is dirty or is starting to be opaque because of use and age.

Try Katamari on a cd reader, and guitar hereo on some friend's PS, if they work, then the PS is starting to get old and having lens problem.

All you can do is blowing asome canned air on PS lens and trying to use a cleaning DVD inside PS. Often this does not work.
