    Mine does that too. Mainly with Rental DVD's that are scratched. Seems like the PS2 is really sensitive.
    My $65 Apex DVD player plays everything. My PS2 is now strictly a games machine now.

    If you use the PS2 for watching DVD's, you will kill the laser. Get a cheap DVD player, it will play better than teh PS2

    Just curious, It is possible to hook up a dvd player+PS2+tv+stereo without having to disconnect anything. Right now i have everything setup so that i dont have to take anything out but instead of a DVD player i have a VCR. Will i be able to just replace it with a DVD player?

    My friend is offering me 200bux for my PS2 w/controller, and memory card. No games, something doesnt sound right but if it does go through I guess ill just buy me a new PS2. I still dont get why he wouldnt just buy a new one. :dunno: :squint:

    I'll sell him mine with 4 games for $200. No memory card though, gotta save it for the replacement PS2.

    When I am playing games, it seems like the CD is spinning all the time.

    Some games (Grand Theft Auto 3) constantly reads the disc (bad design flaw) but others use better memory managment.
