    sounds like a bad burn. try burning at a slower speed not at maximum. say around 4X. also if your burner supports the capability make sure that bitsetting is set to show the DVD+R as a DVD Rom. this increases compaitability with stand alone players.

    Can it be that the PS2 isn't made for playing DVD video(at least not for that only)? Just a thought coz this happens with all of my friends when they try to play any DVD movies on their PS2s but the same discs work fine on a standard DVD player.

    my kida have two PS2's that play DVD's just fine. the PS2 is picky about burned DVD's though.

    Sorry for not mentioning that but I was talking about burned DVD movies.
