    What DVD format disk are talking about? DVD-V, DVD-A, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW or DVD-RAM?

    As far as I know, PS2 is only compatible with DVD-Vs and As, at a poor 1x (1.355Mbps) and with only PCM and rubbish picture quality.

    even if it is possible to link a PS2 to a PC and use the PS2 as a DVD drive, you would end up spending probably more money purchasing or constructing a physical link/cable than you would on a regular DVD-Rom drive.

    It would probably be very costly
    besides you can get a DVD ROM drive for 30 (UK)

    Confused on this one, you say it does not play DVD's very well, yet you want to still use it to play them but watch on a pc lcd screen

    If PS2 is not playing them well, what is the lcd gonna do for you, your still using the PS2 to play? Unless you just do not like the resolution on the tv screen?

    How about a PS2 VGA Adapter, just hook up to the pc monitor from PS2? I agree though you are better off just purchasing a dvd player, cheap these days. The adapter runs around the same amount.
