Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Whenever i put this PS1 disk into my PS2, i hear a scraping-like noise and it comes up "disk read error". It only does this for 2 of my disks, and they're both clean. What's wrong?
Dont know if this will help but mine does the same thing. However i noticed that turning th e unit on its side lessened the "grinding" noise and actually played some ps1 games from time to time. Here is my thoughts. perhaps the speed at which PS1 games is different than PS2 games. and the "gear" for lack of a better word, that controls the speed needed to run ps1 games is getting wore out. Turning it on its side (console) helps reduce the weight pushing down on the motor from the disc itself. less weight pushing down on motor allowed the motor to spin faster and thus helped improve the ability to boot ps1 games. Not saying this is it, just my personal observations which have similar symptoms to others. Im gonna replace the motor that spins the CDs and DVDs for the console and that will surely prove or disprove my theory. hope this may help others.

I have the same problem, the ps2 only reads 'DVD' discs not 'CD' discs. i dont understand it. Can anyone help me because half of my games dont work!! You can't even play Music CDs. PS1 games won't work because they are in the 'CD' format.
