    my friend says his ps2 will play original dvd movies fine but his original ps2 games will not work/read?

    i find it odd that the movies play fine but games will not.

    does anyone know what the solution is?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Sounds like a dirty laser issue...

    Try a lens cleaning disk or this if you're up for it:-

    I give my machine a good clean every 3 months to get rid of all the crap that accumulates inside. It's a 10 minute job and a piece of wee. :thumbsup:

    Check to see if the ps2 games are on blue discs. If they are, this means they are cds, so could be that the dvd laser in your ps2 has gone. Or like the above post mentions, your dvd lens may just need a clean.
