Don't worry, PS1 games are fine in a PS2 system^_^ The only time mine ever froze up was when I pushed the power button until it turned red (stand-by mode) and then I left it like that for about a week and didn't notice. When I tried to play a game or DVD, it kept freezing up. I finally noticed what I had been doing, and turned it off on the back for a few hours and it fixed the prob right up^_^ If it's not that...I dunno ^^;

Nope. I haven't had any problems with mine. Is yours a first generation PS2 or is it newer? There were a lot of problems with the first gen stuff....

i think it was first gen... but the people at sony are morons, first i sent it in to get it repaired and all they did was replace the usual parts that are messed up without even checking it to see if it works...so i got it back, and of course its still the same. so i called up yesterday and they are going to give me a 'new' one at no charge at all...its the least they can do for me since i got the messed up one...
ok iam glad that i can still play my ps1 games on it once i get the new one ^^ thanks!

My friend said something was wrong with her laser but she just replaced it, and my brother's ps2 broke. Both of those are first generation ones, but mine is new so it works fine still ^_^;

Only issues I've had was my PS2 tends to me load sometimes reading discs.

Mine is a first gen PS2 and the only issue I have had is Xenogears freezing up twice when I try to run the "enhanced" mode for PS1 titles. Running at normal I haven't had any issues.

1st gen PS2 for me also..and my Dreamcast is loud too.

Nothing's wrong with mine. Course, I just got mine and I use normal mode, but the only problem is that mine takes a while for a game to load, but the game itself never freezes.
