I have a ps2 slim scph 90004 2B and l have burna DVD-R disc with freedvdboot all slim versions English but when I try to play it in my console, it shows "No data found".... Can anyone help me pls....

If you have burned a DVD-R disc with FreeDVDBoot for PS2 Slim and are getting the "No data found" error when trying to play it on your console, here are some steps you can try:
  1. Verify that the disc is burned correctly: Make sure that you have burned the disc correctly and that there are no errors or issues with the disc itself. Try burning the disc again at a slower speed, and use high-quality blank discs.
  2. Check the file structure: Make sure that you have followed the correct file structure for FreeDVDBoot. The files should be placed in the root directory of the disc, and you should have the "INSTALL" folder and "BOOT.ELF" file.
  3. Check the compatibility of your console: Make sure that your PS2 Slim model is compatible with FreeDVDBoot. Not all PS2 Slim models are compatible with this exploit. You can check the compatibility list on the FreeDVDBoot website.
  4. Try a different exploit: If you are unable to get FreeDVDBoot to work, you can try using a different exploit, such as FreeMcBoot or SwapMagic.
  5. Take the console to a professional: If you are still unable to get the exploit to work, it may be necessary to take the console to a professional technician or repair shop for further diagnosis and repair.
Remember to always follow safety guidelines when working with consoles and discs, and to use caution when modifying your console.

When I put a dvd in the sony playstion 2 slim it says (This movie will not play due to the parental setting of the player) how do I remove parental restrictions for dvd's & cd's Thanks

In settings there is the parental lock code. If Bought Brand new, then the defaut password is usually 1234, so give that a try. After which you can set it to the most allowing setting, which i believe is 8 and then any movie shoud play. However if you have set a password then you either need to reset it with a PS2 format disc.

Please insert ps2 format disc?

Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Some games won't play on my ps2 slim

The PS2 has a dual laser diode, one for DVD format, and one for CD format. Both use the same optics to focus on the media. Since you can get one disc to owrk and another will not, the issue is with the discs or one of the laser diodes. Determine is the discs that work are CD or DVD format. If the ones that work are all CD format, you need a new laser. Or vice versa, if all the ones that work are DVD format, you need a new laser. If it is mixed, you need to clean the optics or disc media surface.
Cleaning the laser lens is done by getting a Toothpick, and wrapping a small piece of paper towel around the point of the toothpick. Dampen the toothpick swab with a Windex type cleaner, and swab the lens. Use a dry toothpick paper towel swab to dry the lens.

The discs can be cleaned with a toothpaste that is not gritty. Dab toothpaste and add water, then use circular motions to clean up smufges and fine scratches. Rinse and dry with a lint free cloth.

Contact [email protected] is you need to get a laser replaced.

Formatting

Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.
