First see if it plays cds. If so, try DVD movies. If so, try a game. If it plays cds but not DVD's or games, either the laser needs to be adjusted or replaced. I got a few PS2's from friends that they used ALOT. Turned out the lasers were bad. Memory cards only store game saves and such and don't help with media booting.
try this go to the start menu then to all programs from the list select default programs from this menu select change auto play settings in this selection go to one of the dvd options click on the arrow on the right to access the drop down menu and choose an option do this for all dvd options then it should use the program you selected from the dromp down menu to play the dvd
The 'Eye' that the PS uses to read DVDs/CDs are different, the one that reads cds has gone bad on yours it seems, so you should still be able to play the games that have the dvd logo, if it is still under warranty I reccommend calling sony.
Maybe it's time to replace but try this last thing before opening the trash can lid:-
Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete.
Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers.
