Your best bet is to use Compressed Air to clean the machine the right way instead of blowing into it. and dont use rubbing alchol on discs - this will ruin game discs.. Better to buy a cleaning disc just made for games, you can get it at the gaming stores, such as GameStop, BuyBack Games, etc.... If after you did this and your system still isnt reading the disc then the system is defective.

Clean the disc with rubbing alcohol. There may be scratches, which causes the Ps2 to not recognize the disc. Also, gently blow into your ps2. There may be a dust build up.

SOURCE: No data error all discs, even new ones

Hi STokesG101,

 

I am StokesG too.  Greg Stokes From South Carolina USA.  You Laser has melted.  If you good with Electronics repair like me, you could open the case back up and replace the laser.  The Ribbon cable that connects to the laser is held in place.  You have to carefully unlatch the retainer that holds the Ribbon in.  I think it is read and pulls out on both ends of the ribbon connector.  Its not a flip up type, it is a pull out type connector.  You can get another laser from www.repairmyvideogame.com

I can replace the laser for you for $40 which includes return shipping.  My email is repairtech@playstationclinic.com and I run the website www.playstationclinic.com

SOURCE: My ps2 is not reading game discs. Screen says no data.

There is a possibility that he LENS is failing. You may need to clean it with a lens cleaner but if that will not work, you might as well send it to repair shop and have them replace the LENS or go and modify it but that's a whole lots of story.

I can't get into the map on my pioneer avic d3


The AVIC D3 is not pioneers best. The navigation side of the unit is wearing out. The slider slot in the dvd and other moving parts are wearing down fractionally and that is all it takes for the unit to no longer read the high density map data discs. The map disc is a dual layer 8.5gb disc and it is just about max out. (The disc must be in the unit for the navigation to work.) This is a lot of information and the unit must be able to read every bit of data on the disc or it will error out. All it takes is the fractional wear to mess up the tracking of the laser over the disc and cause problems reading the data on the disc. When the unit spins and spins, it is working hard to read something on the disc and will eventually error out if it can't. Also a fingerprint or tiny spot on the disc will prevent the unit from reading the disc. (Clean with a drop of water and soft cotton cloth even if it looks clean.) The data is information or instructions telling the unit what to do, and if it misses any information it will go crazy and error out. This is very different from music or video/movies that just play and if a spot is on the disc it will just be a fuzzy picture or static from that spot. If you have a disc your system likes, take care of it. I say likes because every disc has fractional differences in data location on the disc. (This is tolerance) That fractional difference could make or break the ability of your unit to read the map disc. So one possible fix is trying different disc to see if your unit will like one of them. Still eventually this also will die. These units are beyond their life cycle and the dvd drive is operating on borrowed time. I hope this helps.

After years of working fine my Sony 5-disc CD recorder has suddenly decided that every disc is a "data disc." The music blanks that have always worked in the past are now being read as "data disc" when I...


Mine was doing the same thing. I even posted the same question. Then after reading through other questions, I found that the discs I was using were CD-R that would only record on my PC. They are Data Discs. There is a different kind of CD-R and it is for music only and they are marked CD-R MUSIC. The little compact disc symbol on the package should read recordable underneath. I had not used mine in awhile and forgot to look for that on the package. Now mine works, Hope yours does too.

When I want to copy a CD must I only record on a CD blank disc; i.e. not a DVD


It depends upon what type of data you want to copy onto a CD or DVD.
If you want to copy and play music in a CD player then it needs to be on a CD disc.
If you want to copy and play movie DVDs in a DVD player then it needs to be on a DVD disc.
If you want to backup data files then it can be on either CD or DVD discs (depending upon the amount of data to be stored on the disc - CD holds 700 Mb, single layer DVD holds 4.7 Gb, and dual layer DVD holds 8.5 Gb of data).
A DVD player can read both CDs and DVDs, but a CD player cannot read DVD discs.
