Alright so I was at my friend's house last night, and noticed he had a few burned DVD-R movies in his collection. And the only DVD player he owns is a PS2. Immediately I asked him "Do you have a modchip? How are you able to play those?" And he said no, and I remembered when he got it, hell I bought mine a month after he did. He didnt have a modchip, he didnt softmod the PS2, he probaly doesnt even know what any of that means. And I am sure he didnt have anyone steal it and MOD it for him. He bought it brand new from a Walmart or Kmart or something. I didnt believe him, so I forced him to play a burned DVD-R move, and IT WORKED. This made absolutely no sense to me. He has a Network Adapter on the PS2, but that came with it, and I am sure that has nothing to do with it. I just am trying to understand this, so then maybe I can copy movies and play them on mine! Maybe even games! All without at modchip! Can someone please comment or help to explain this? Thank you everyone.
