I opened it up and see that it often simply stops spinning the disc and does not try too hard to read the disc. It seems to work fine otherwise and reads just about everything including burned games and dvd-rw discs as well (I have 2 fat models and the other one works faster but wont read -rw) I am wondering if there is anything I can do to help it out. I cleaned and tried the diagnosis mode. Everything seems fine. Usually a ps2 disc will autoboot but I always have to launch from the browser on this one. Sometimes it won't read in the browser either and it will tell me "no data" is on the disc. What is happening is its not even spinning the disc or trying to read it. Once a game reads it seems to play perfectly fine.
