are you aware of what an image file is? it's a complicated file that explains to the writing software, how to exactly recreate the original, sector for sector, regardless of what was on it, or what Windows thinks is even a valid disc, or not, "don't read it, just make it like this" But an image file is still a file, and can be burned as data, I've seen noobies do this far to often, burning a windows data disc OF an ISO image file, rather than burning a duplicate FROM an iso, if you use decryptor then you can't mess it up, it ONLY burns from iso's in iso/mode/write mode, and cannot make a data disc.
Chances are you've done the burn right, since instead of dre's, you get the rsod (red screen of death) which means that the ps2 read the disc correctly, and the disc was not an original store bought ps2 game, and furthermore, it did not contain the folder VIDEO_TS, so it's not a dvd movie, and it WON'T read it, as opposed to CAN'T read it, which would be dre.
We need to talk more about your boot method, since that's probably what you're doing wrong, correctly booting bad discs gets the black screen of oblivion, incorrectly booting anything gets you the rsod. And since I know you use a version 4, a very good machine, lacking the swap trick preventative "software security" updated bios found first in the version 7's, that sucker can boot anything if you do it right.
A toxic agent on a dangerous mission so secret, even I don't know what it is, because if I did, I would have to kill myself. I don't even know who's side I am on.
