  1. Unfortunately, these are very strong indications that your game disc is damaged or that the optical drive in your PS2 is failing.

    Thoroughly testing with another DVD game disc that uses most of the DVD may provide a clue as to whether the issue is the AC5 game disc or the PS2 optical drive.

    There is little that can be done with a damaged game disc except to replace it.

    It may be possible to repair or replace a failing PS2 optical drive, but at this point in the life of the PS2 it may be more practical and cost effective to simply replace the entire PS2.

    The possibility also exists that the PS2 optical drive is full of dust and/or that the lens is dirty. I recommend against the "cleaning disc" type of products because they may be ineffective and might even cause additional damage. The only sure way to clean a dirty drive is to have someone qualified disassemble it and clean it. Typical PS2 owners are not qualified to do this kind of work, but that rarely stops them when they are desperate.

    The problems of damaged game discs and failing PS2 optical drives are not specific to AC5, so you may be able to learn more by expanding your search.
