Neither VCDs nor SVCDs play in the Sony Playstation 2. Maybe some third party developer will make an attachment like they did for the original Playstation.

I tried it in my PS2. I didn't read VideoCDs or CDRW discs. It did read CDRs however, but only audio CDRs I burnt myself.

I've have been trying like all hell..

dude, it won't work. I've tried like a mother fucker, and that shit just DOSN'T WORK.

vcd don't, and neither have I gotten the svcds to work. It's ridiculous. THEY ARE IN THE SAME FORMAT MPEG-2. God damnit. oh well. Guess I'll throw all these svcds I burned away....

Try this place. I have been looking everywhere and this is the closest thing I have found to convert vcd onto ps2 but I have a mac so unless I get softwindows or something, I won't know if it works. Bugger!!!

can someone please e-mail me if it works. than

I just looked at download kit to change a vcd to be able to play on the playstation 2. I recommend if to buy the mod. I am not sure if the kit works, but it looks like hell to try to do. It also has limitations. The PS2 only allows short clips to be played this way. BUY THE MOD CHIP.
