    Did you patch it with ESR?

    Could also be the game not liking that model of PS2. I had one that wouldn't run on my slim even though other backups ran fine, yet it runs on my old wore out early model PS2 just fine. Try another game and see if it works.

    i did not patch it with ESR because those games that i burned can play it with my cousins ps2.



    i've tried 4 games already but still it doesn't work on my ps2, but when i tried that 4 games with my cousins ps2 it works on his console.

    Well did you play it via ESR or SwapMagic on your cousin? What about your console?

    There is no way PS2 will play burned disc without either modchip, ESR, or Swap Magic.

    * Modchip is hardmod.
    * ESR is softmod, relying on a disc loader called ESR to load the game. ISO must be patched with ESR prior to burning or ESR loading will not work.
    * Swap Magic is an actual disc that is manufactured in a way to fool PS2 into thinking it is an authentic disc. Swap Magic stops the PS2 disc drive, allowing you to swap in a burned disc and play them.

    Based on your description, your cousin's SCPH-90006 is hard modded. FreeMcboot (memory card exploit that allows you to run ESR) does NOT work on most 9000x series since Sony patched the exploit. And since you did not mention swapping the disc, the only way your cousin's PS2 plays burned disc is if that PS2 has a mod chip installed.

    Hence you are back to square one.

    * First you need a memory card with FreeMcboot exploit.
    * Next you need to patch your ISO with ESR, then burn them on to DVD-R. Quality DVD-R would be Tayio Yuden. Burn it at 8x.
