You might need to get your ps2 modified so it can read all kinds of disc...i had the same problem before with my console so i took it to a shop and got it checked and modified. when i got my console back it was working really well.
Thanks.

My ps2 won't read dvd movies. I put them in and nothing happens. even when i click the browse selection. It plays the games just fine, but doesn't seem to read the movies at all.


you need to have a modded ps2 to play pirated movies which are not official copies if you are using an original dvd copy then try keeping a weight say a small mobile charger or a small book on the ps2 if you are using the slim ps2

Tip

Try this to play DVD movies on your PS2 if it wont play DVD movies.


If your PS2 works fine with Games and just wont play any DVD movies at all.Then you should try this trick to play movies on your PS2:

  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:894e4e5.jpg
  3. Press the ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like3aef030.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear like0163e66.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press ps_b_x.gif button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the movie plays itself.If your lens is good then it will play DVD in first go else try again till it PLAY your DVD movie.

My ps3 wont play ps3 games but it will play movies and ps2 games


If the movies are DVD (like ps2 games) It could be that the laser for your PS3 has issues-
Try using a lint-free lens cloth to clean the laser lens- if that does not work, you may need to contact Sony for an RMA to get your PS3 repaired

My PS2 will play only some DVD movies fine. It does the same with PS2 games. Seems like they have removed something that the older, larger PS2s had that allowed them to read DVDs more deeply and play...


Hi there Mike,

The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.
