Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.

I was just wondering, IF the PS2 can play games that have been edited on a computer/laptop (e.g. 4-disc PS1 game put onto one disc), and not edited as in the actual game disc being edited, but put on a...


Your system needs a mod chip to play games on a disc that was not created by Sony.
Most ps2 games are DVD's only some are cd's.. All of the ps1 games are cd's so if you burnt it onto a dvd its not going to work.

Both my marvel vs. capcom games don't work


i dunno what the problem might be, but i can imagine the disc having many scratches, the lens of consoles are pretty delicate and being honest they cant read scratced discs at all. The best choice u have is to go at the nearest gamestop and pick off those games off the bargain bin.

Ps1 games slow on ps2


It's because the CD's that the PS2 is designed to be used for are DVD (discs) these have more complex data on them and thus the low level discs are read with such intensity that they cannot declare all the information on them!

Ps2


This is because the initial read zone on the PS2 is now needed to get the PS1 game past the boot stage. I've seen this done and it's simliar to a hot-swap disc. The only solution is really a new PS2, but good luck in continuing this little "cheat" on the error: it should work indefinitely
