The yellow i mean is the real yellow. The yellow i mean is yellow at the back of the movies disc or anything like that.

the disc label is yellow?
I can only think of something like the Kodak Gold CD-Rs, which won't read in a PS2, though it might depend what was on it.

it reads CDs ok? CD based games? PS games? does it not read DVD movies or DVD games or both? sometimes it can be any combination. It's probably a dying laser, but it might be a dirty lens, though I think a dirty lens usually stops it reading most things.

Yeah it reads everything but DVDs.
It wouldn't even read this BRAND NEW DVD. What is up w/that?

Could be dirty lens. I've cleaned one with a similar problem, it fixed it. But could also be a dying laser, you could try cleaning it first, see if it helps, then try adjusting it.

Try to clean the lens. Recently my old fat PS2 stopped reading all dual layer discs so I took it apart and cleaned the lens and they started loading up just fine again.

Please tell help me! I've just bought original MGS3. Game reads my memory card but it stops while saving! It says that there's no memory card insert, but there is! Game and memory card are original. Every my game didn't have such a problem, I can save and load every game! Expect MGS3 ;/.

Try a different card, it might be faulty.
Check the disc has no scratches, that might affect it.
Try both on a different PS2.
It is an odd problem!
