u can switch between different modes using the mode chips available over here, Available modes are Backup PS2s mode, backup PS1 and Off mode(DVD mode), Note: these modes go back to the backup PS2 mode when u switch off and On or go to standby mode and come back on, d normal way, to switch to DVD mode when the standby light is on(red), press and hold reset button till u feel a jerk by the game and the blue light comes on, now u can watch the DVDs matching your Region or region free ones, but not play your backup PS2 Cds.

If you try 2000 times, it might play just twice, not that it wont play at all. It depends on the modchip used. To confirm this, try it continously (definitely not up to 2000 times) you'll see that it will play at one point. But you've not been duped as long as it plays DVD games

Thanks for your reply,

But if it has a modchip, it should stil be able to play a DVD movie,

Like a friends who has d same type of PS2 was able to play DVD Movies and also played recorded games.

I'm sure it has a modchip in it for playing pirated discs, that could be the cause.
