This can sometimes be caused by the actual PS2 media. PS2 discs usually have either a silver or blue bottom. Silver is DVD media and Blue is CD media. Sometimes the laser mechanism gets a little wonky and can't read one type or another. Typically, older games had the blue discs (Kinetica and Gran Turismo are some of the oldest games on the system) I would check the color of your existing games and see if that is an issue. Another possible idea is that you just got a bad disc, it doesn't happen very often but it does pop up from time to time.

My ps2 slim wont read god of war II disc but it reads all my other games just fine so please i need a solution

God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.

When i put the dvd into the PS2 it starts to read it and then it says this disc could not be read . Dvd is original i bought it one day ago and still nothing

God Of War basically a bit heavy game regarding data and capacity, so that if the optical of your playstation would be weak then it will not play until you would change it or get cleaning, normally when we talk about GOW II it needs healthy lens, although your console play all the games except GOW II very smoothly. Contact any expert to get cleaning of your PS2 lens and enjoy the game.

God of war 2 used to work on my Ps2 (sliver slim one) but now it doesnt work any more?

Try some of your other games and see if any of them work. If you can't get any of the games to work then that means the laser is bad in the disc drive.

If only God of War 2 isn't working then that means there is something wrong with the disc and you'll have to try another God of War 2 disc.

Play staion 2 reads all games but wont read god of war 1 and 2

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.

It wont work

try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes

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
