This was my question to many people, including sales man (yea right like they would knew) and other advanced users...My most consern was not to install modchip, which we all knew that removes all limits but find out if a un-modded PS2 can playback DVD Movies burned at DVD-R/+R media...

And the answer is...

Yes it can playback them, if the CSS protection has been removed before burn (with DVD Decrypter for example...). If CSS is present won't playback them.

I can't get my PS2 to read +R media. But yeah, DVD-R works if I use DVDxCopy or DVD Decrypter.

What revision is your PS2? My Revision 9 PS2 will play most DVD+Rs or DVD-Rs I stick in it.

Have you tried using a bitsetting tool to make a DVD-ROM out of the DVD+R?

Mine is a SPCH-39001, so it's a little older. But I'm not really that advanced yet burning dvds, I've only used DVDDecrypter and DVDShrink to make a few back ups for the minivan;) Any links to sites with good software to play with?
Thx

I bought my PS2 over 18 months ago now and yes I can plat my riteks +/-R no problems at all.

In fact I've recently been to China and bought some nice cheap DVD's that haven't even made it
to mainland Oz yet and the ones that didn;t work in my XMS payer did in the PS2.

Good, so most PS2 will playback non-protected DVD-Video discs...

My PS@ plays back protected DVDs too (obviously non-copies) but the colour gets a little funny (light to dark, then dark to light) from time to time. I think that's the macrovision causing problems. The best way to fix it is to copy the DVD and rip all the protection out!
