    It may do , depends on the game. Something that's constantly streaming from disc like the GTA games might not work to well. I wouldn't advise using dvd+/-rw discs though , unless you want the laser to die prematurely.

    Hate to say the obvious but, you do have it modded right?

    Backup movies work on ANY PS2, Games on the other hand DO NOT.
    Unless you use a swap disc or a modchip.

    That is all

    Why would you even ask if they would work if you didn't have some sort of mod [​IMG]. If you ask about playing copied games on X media, assumption would be you have some way to boot em.

    That's what I guessed , but from his reply of not wasting time downloading and burning , it would seem he does not.

    My guess is the site wouldn't lie. If it says 3.6, it's probably 3.6

    Just wondering, why do you want to use dvd+rw so much?

    I'd assume you just want to try out if something works without losing a dvd. Still, these days $20 gets you a pack of like 50 dvd-r's, which are pretty much guaranteed to work on any ps2 out there, as well as putting less stress on the ps2 laser.
