Re: my ps2 doesnt read some of my games
This can sometimes be caused by the actual PS2 media. PS2 discs usually have either a silver or blue bottom. Silver is DVD media and Blue is CD media. Sometimes the laser mechanism gets a little wonky and can't read one type or another. Typically, older games had the blue discs (Kinetica and Gran Turismo are some of the oldest games on the system) I would check the color of your existing games and see if that is an issue.
Another possible idea is that you just got a bad disc, it doesn't happen very often but it does pop up from time to time.

God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.
Hi, God Of War basically a bit heavy game regarding data and capacity, so that if the optical of your playstation would be weak then it will not play until you would change it or get cleaning, normally when we talk about GOW II it needs healthy lens, although your console play all the games except GOW II very smoothly. Contact any expert to get cleaning of your PS2 lens and enjoy the game. Thanks
Games like God of War 2, Grand Turismo 4 etc take time to load and some times these games are not loaded by consoles with weak lenses or dirty lens.You should consider cleaning your lens.Cleaning lens might solve your problem plus here is a trick for you to play such heavy games(Although its about playing DVDs on PS2 but you can play your game by following this tip the same way.)

try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes

the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
