I have an older PS2 - it was a "Network" edition (so, not a "first wave" PS2), and it has played every game I put in it... until I bought Taito Legends. The system simply will not read the disc at all. I've managed to get it to run once in the entire time I've owned the disc. Meanwhile, other, newer PS2s have no problem with it at all.
It was brought to my attention again this weekend when I went to Gateway (a gaming convention), and found that a friend's Worms Forts wouldn't play on my system either - and I noticed that it, too, has a purple read surface.
Is there some sort of firmware upgrade that I can get and install on my PS2 to be able to play these? It's really annoying...
I'm only asking because my Search-Fu is weak, and all I'm getting are hits for PS3 firmware updates and "hack" updates for the PS2.
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
