That's not true, I've played burned dvds on my playstation 2 before, back in the day that it was actually new, it's now Years old from when it first come out, it stuggles unfortunetly so now it doesn't play dvds. I plan to pop the case and figure it out, I may try re adjusting the lens head to it's propper location. I've poped the case before, I also know which part goes where, I observed it that much. If anyone needs any help with it, just ask ok??
