Question about PS2 not reading backups
My last phat PS2, the really, really old one (wouldn't even play DVD movies w/o firmware update) bit the dust so I picked up a cheap one online. It's just barely newer, a phat model. It plays DVD movies, DVD games, CD games, boots my SwapMagic discs, but has trouble reading backup discs that worked on my old system. I think I only got it to load a backup disc once and it was really slow.
Is there anything I can do to fix this? I cleaned the laser but that didn't seem to help.
