4:  Want to Contribute?

Your input is valuable! Please add to the list, because it is what we 
make it. If possible, identify a title with the release date (or at least 
some person such as an actor or director) and version (such as 
Director's Cut).  This information helps to avoid confusion about 
which version of "Dracula" we're talking about (there are often more 
versions than you know).  The studio it came from is also valuable 
info, as some studios' releases are more likely to work than others, 
and some movies see DVD release through more than one studio.  If 
the DVD doesn't work, describe whether it fails to boot up or gets to 
the PS2 DVD menu but won't play (failing to boot may be because the 
trick wasn't done right).  Mail your compatibility information to 
Invasion (invasion.kenji@verizon.net) or post your findings in the 
PlayStation2 message board here at GameFAQs.com.

If a title is specified as anime or music, it will be included in the 
anime or music lists, too.

Additional details, like which special features work, may not appear 
in this list, but are displayed, as allowed, at Invasion's site 
(members.bellatlantic.net/~vze24rje/).

***********************************************************************


5:  How do I play DVDs?  How do I know if a DVD works?

This information ONLY applies to the first series of the Japanese PS2 
(SCPH 10000) using version 1.00 of the DVD Player (saved onto the 
memory card).  To find out what version of DVD Player you have, 
press the 'triangle' button in the PS2 startup menu.  To see what 
model PS2 you have (eg SCPH 10000), look on the back of the 
console.


Playing R1 DVDs

Press and hold 'up' on the d-pad as soon as you select the DVD from 
the system menu, and continue to hold up until the disc plays, you 
see the PS2 DVD menu, or you see two lines of Japanese text 
(indicating a failure to boot).  You may need to try this a few times to 
get the movie to boot, and the original digital (not DualShock) 
controllers seem to be the most reliable.  You may also have luck 
pressing and holding 'up' while powering up the console.

You should at least be able to boot to the PS2 DVD menu, if not 
immediate movie play, indicating successful execution of the trick.  
Some DVDs will not play, and you will see in the corner of the screen 
a little white square with a few characters indicating this when you 
select Play (the little triangle icon) from the PS2 DVD menu.  
However, just about every DVD can be booted up at least to the PS2 
DVD menu, and failure to get this far probably indicates the trick 
wasn't done right.

Be patient, especially if you are just learning the trick.  Often 
multiple attempts are necessary to get the DVD to boot, and trying an 
original controller may be the ticket if problems persist.  You may 
also have luck pressing in and holding the left stick (L3) of a 
DualShock2, instead of up on the D-pad, or turning on or off the red 
LED (analog on/off).

If you get to the PS2 DVD menu and the DVD still won't play, or the 
movie plays but some extras on the DVD won't (like video sequences 
such as theatrical trailers), you may want to try Chapter skipping.  
Select the curling arrow and enter 01, 02, or 03, etc.


The PS2 DVD Menu

JVGFanatic.com (Japanese Video Game Fanatic) has a translation of 
the Japanese PS2 DVD menu, as part of its extensive coverage of 
Japanese video gaming in general.


DVD Player version 1.01

There have been a few proposed tricks (holding down various 
combinations of square, circle, and triangle), but the persisting report 
is that they do not work and that there is no way to get v 1.01 to 
play R1 DVDs.

7:  Where else can I find information on this topic?

Invasion's site (members.bellatlantic.net/~vze24rje/) is the best

information.

The PlayStation2 message board here at GameFAQs.com a has 
discussion of DVD functionality on the PS2 in general.

IMDb.com is a great reference for movie information of all kinds, 
including actors, dates, and multiple titles.
