Replacing the optical drive of the PS2?
Hi, I have a PS2 that I bought second hand from a friend. Strangely, it works very well with my PSOne CDs, but when I put a PS2 DVD, it starts up, runs across the game opening and crashes. I've been told that is must be the optical drive - my friend must have used it as a DVD drive too - and would have to change. How do I do that?
Try cleaning your current one by getting either a cleaning disc that u put into the playstation or opening it up, most of the time the optical gets dirty or if you have an older playstation 2 then there is a gear the channels what media your system can play, if you search Google there are reviews on how to fix this problem.
