Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

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 CD-ROM, how to get the PS2 to read these "edits" because I have tried this before, the example I gave is what I tried, and the PS2 gave an error message: "The Disc Could Not Be Read". I would like to know if this is because it cannot read computer-edited games period, or if I did something wrong when editing the games.

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.

    What is a "Mod chip", where can I get one, and is it easy to use, aside from that, problem solved.

  • Yayimfixed Oct 06, 2010

    A mod chip can be found online at places like
    http://www.mod-chip.com/ps2/ps2-modchips...

    That will bring you directly to a page that sells them, I don't endorse the company since i never bought one from them, But it's a great place to start.

    Please remember to leave 4 thumbs for the free advice thanks..

The only way someone can get a PS1 to play PS2 games is if they modified a PS2 to look like a PS1. The hardware inside a PS1 is not powerful enough and not complex enough to run PS2 games. They would need to take a PS1, and take the insides out. Then take the insides of a PS2 and modify it so it functionally fit inside a PS1. This seems like cool albeit pointless way to modify your PS1 and PS2. Thanks for the question!

2 PS1 games in almost perfect condition arn't working on PS2


Try wiping the disks in a circular motion with a cotton t-shirt, tissue or cleaning cloth, then try again. If it still doesn't work, try a PS2 game. If it works, try another PS1 game. If the other PS1 game doesn't work, the PS1 part of your PS2 system may be broken. Your PS2 has, inside of it, a miniaturized PS1. If that mini-PS1 breaks, you can't play PS1 games. If the PS2 game doesn't work, you probably need a lens repair. If the other PS1 game works, then your games are defective and you should get new ones.

Ps1 disc playing in ps2


Are you inserting a PS2 or a PS1 memory card?
PS1 games can't use a PS2 card because they don't "understand" how to read them.
To save a PS1 game on a PS2 you will need a PS1 memory card.

I hope this helps, I assume this is what you are referring to with your question.

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
