SCPH-15000 Requires a PS2 memorycard with DVD driver at least v1.01 installed (1.00 doesn't work at all) and for installing that you need the utility disc. So in case you have no utility disc, no DVD movies for you.

Actually this old version of PS2 (like SCPH-10000) doesn't have built in DVD driver in the ROM, hence the need for the memory card and utility disc. Press triangle on the menu screen and you will see there is no DVD driver version there, unless you plug a memcard with valid DVD driver in it.
