    Re: PS2 problem

    My guess is that your gameshark is of the old 'blue disk' varity. My older PS2 had problems reading any type of blue disk and most of my PS1 black disks near the end of it's life. The problem is most likley the PS2 and you should take it back.

    My question is do you have a 'slimline' PS2 (the new really small models) or the older bulky ones. My 2nd PS2 is a slimline and it reads all my disks fine.

    Re: PS2 problem

    it happens alot to older versions of ps2 the earlier ones had bad lasers and would stop being able to read black ps1 discs and blue ps2 discs ( the blue ones are still cd's ) it might not happen to all cd's butit wont read the majority of it or only after 10 tries or something

    there isnt really a problem to fix it unless you want to screw it apart buy a new laser component and replace it , but that would be alot of trouble if you dont know what you're doing

    i myself had the same problem my 1st generation ps2 already had that after it was only 9 months old , lucky i still had warranty and got it replaced
    but however that one kicked the bucket also after a year and a half

    bought a new one after that and it still works fine to this day

    so you can either say screw it or buy a new ps2/ps3 =/
    unless you think you can put the laser module in there yourself

    Re: PS2 problem

    I meant blue disk..sorry..

    No Hassun I don't own any of the games you mentioned..

    @Barronmore-I have the bulky PS2..

    I told my dad it was the PS2..but he figures its the disc..he works with programs and machines..he says if it can play my PS2 games then it works...*sigh* he's uber stubborn..

    But do you think Burning the Gameshark onto another disc will work?

    It's the PS2. If you want a professional opinion for him to chew on take him to Gamestop and they will tell him the same thing.

    Unless your PS2 has been modified to read cd-r/Dvd-r's, then copying your GS to a new disk will not do anything for you.

    Try to play Metal Gear Solid 3 on that playstation. If it also refuses to play it then the problem could be the same one I had. Newer PS2 discs are a new kind of double layered DVDs, some old PS2s (like my old one) can't play those.
