Sounds as though the drive may be failing. If the unit spins and whirs a lot when loading disks, it will most likely need replacing

I have Sony play station 2 model SCPH 75004 which is failing to play PS1 DVD and CDs. I hear it requires a mod chip. Where can I get the mod chip and how is it installed to the PS2.

ruben, the PS1 is the only system created with the capability of adding a mod chip. When they first came out, the PS1Generation 1(PSX)could play burned games and DVD's. Sony discovered that it created an issue with the excessive wear of the cd drive, so they recalled the system. Then they re-released it and it couldn't play DVD's anymore. The PS2 could already play DVD so it has no mod chip function.

Will play ps1 game but not ps2

The PS2 has two different lasers, one for CD games and one for DVD games. The tuning for each is independent. If DVD games are working and CD games are not (backups or originals, PS1 or PS2) and cleaning the CD laser doesn't work and everything's connected together well then you may need to tune/align the CD laser. Just go to Lycos.com and type in 'PS2 laser alignment'. My favorite is the one from Sweden.

Playstation 2 slim

you might want to get a long q-tip and gently put alcohol on it and swap the lens.then have another tip ready to dry off. ps2 games are basiclly a dvd . and you can find info about a lawsuit that sony has against them for not being able to read dvd's.

Playstation card

Your question is somewhat confusing, using a playstation 2 memory card, will have PS2 game saves on it, how would you play PS2 games on a PS1 from the save, you can't. If you just mean you are using a PS2 card for a PS1, the way a PS2 card saves data is different to a PS1 card, so it probably won't work You can use your PS1 memory cards in the PS2. You can only use the PS1 memory cards to save PS1 games that you are playing in your PS2. You can't save any PS2 game data to a PS1 memory card
