As far as I know, the only way to play backups is to "chip" the console. On the PS2 there is a switch located under the DVD tray that can be flipped to remove regional restrictions, allowing you to play import games, but it doesn't work with back ups.

Can we play play station games on our pc computer without remort controller?


Hi,

You will need the controller to play PS games on the PC.

As well as that you will need a PS emulator and drivers + a patch to make the PS controller work. The only PS controler that will work is a USB PS3 controller.

If you use a standard USB game pad you find that you can't play the games properly.


You can get an emulator by clicking on the link below >>>>>>

I wanted to play on lord of the rings the third age for ps2 when the console struggled to read it and went on to a red screen saying please insert format disc, i dont what one of them is and i just want to...


Is your disc original!!!
If don't, you have to change it to original, because PS2 ( with no Mod-Chip) can't read copy disc.

It's different if you install a Mod-Chip on the PS 2 Board, it's not a big problem.

If your disc is original and still won't play, then possibly the disc it self or the PS 2 lens already dirty, try cleaning it both........

My PS doesn't acknowledge my Blood Omen or Soul Reaver games.


Check the text on the back of the game cases. My copy of The Da Vinci Code (UK version) says "This software is only compatible with the PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system displaying the [__PAL__] Logo", whereas my Backyard Wrestling: Don't Try This At Home (US version, sent by a friend from Canada), has the legend "THIS SOFTWARE IS COMPATIBLE WITH PLAYSTATION 2 CONSOLES WITH THE NTSC U/C DESIGNATION."

also, check the codes on the left side of the disc, again, The Da Vinci Code has the game's internal ID code as "SLES-54031" and the [__PAL__] logo, whereas BAckyard Wrestling shows the [_NTSC_|_U/C_] logo, and the internal identifier SLUS 20638. The 4 letter code identifieds the country/region it was intended for sale and use in.

If this is the case, then your only option is to buy the games again, from a local retailer, to ensure the correct region, buy a foreign console, or, have your console chipped to play imports/copies. Be warned, however, that not all chips are perfect, and that you may end up damaging your console if you chip it yourself. I chipped my PS2 a while back, to play BY Wrestling, some 3 months later, the chip caught fire. It was a pretty display, but my ps2 ceased to function. permanently.

Ps 2 chipped


I have also envountered problems with dogs life, my only reasonable explination is:

 

dogs life is most propably written on a normal CD-R,

and sometimes a chipped PS2 struggles to read CD-R games, you will also find that older PSX games wont work either, hope this is of some help.

 

have a blessed day.

You have to disable the region lock by installing a so called "mod chip". This is a microprocessor (PIC Micro) that is wired inside the PS" or othe game consoles. There should be stores in your place that offer this service. Here is are sample of mode chips: http://www.mod-chip.com/ You can also google for sites that give instructions on how to install the chip and where to buy it.
