Default PS2 not reading CD games but reading DVD games

sponsored links
My PS2 stopped reading PS2 CD games, but it still reads DVD games flawlessly. Whenever i insert a cd game, it grinds and makes all sorts of noises. Whats wrong?

Thats just ya laser for the cd based games.

If you really want to play CD games you would have to put a new laser in or get it aligned properly (if it has become misaligned).

Mine was doing that reading DVDRs but not CDRs repair man said it was dust in the PS2 and to vacuum at the back near the fan every month. Works OK now.

you know what that means? it meas that one of your laser's eyes went out. cause the ps2 has to lasers. the one on the bottom is the dvd laser and the one on top is the cd laser and if one goes out then you cant boot that format anymore
