I basicly made a duplicate of the cd.

It's a folder with content. I put a ps2 disc on the system and click on the duplicate option

What was the disks you copied originally made from?
(disk juggler?)

If you do a disk copy it should work fine
I have copied x-box games and all ps2 games with no problems

Other things to check

Maybe you laser is:
1. dirty
2. needs adjusting

OR

It could be that you have a weak solder joint on your chip or one of the wires has come loose or soldered in the wrong place

Try one of your games on another ps2 and see if it works too that way you know if you are getting a good burn

[B]One other thing thinking about it. I had the same trouble with my iBook. I burned a ripped PS2 game and burnt it on my iBook. It would not play. I then burnt it on my G4 and it was fine. I think becaue of the low power consumpion on laptops you end up getting a weaker burn than you would on a desktop. Plus the fact of crap lasers in PS2 it doesnt sound a good combination [/B]
I have also ran into this same problem before macdude
