i don't know why, but my ps2 has trouble playing CD/DVDs!

Anybody know why?

Start off with a CD/DVD lens cleaner. If you don't have one already you'll probably pick one up pretty cheaply on eBay. It's basically a disc with some fine brushes on it, somestimes comes with a cleaning solution to apply to the brush.

If that doesn't help, it could be that the optical drive in your PS2 is faulty. Probably cheaper to pick up a second hand PS2 than to repair it if that is the case.

Build an PS2 Arcade Cabinet!
Been looking how to make it, to have mame games on it, but if you burn discs you can only use 30 game per disc.... any idea on how to get as much as you want using USB external disc?

If it works, and it's unwanted, give it to any near-by small person in need.

Or just leave on a street with a little notice by it.

doesnt work as a ps2; fixed it once and its broken again and we cant see what is wrong this time, DVD drive and stuff still works, at the moment im canobalising it and turning it into a CD and DVD player with speakers for my room, got some old stereo speakers, decent quality which will be rigged to it lol some how or another, my dad is good with chips n techinal electric stuff so wil be good. Was just wondering what else would be possible.

There is no logical way to even try hooking it up to your computer. Just won't work, although if you had it networked locally (using all the ps2 guts), you could probably access the drive through lan. But yea, just hook it up to a stereo.
