PS2 Playing DVD-R Backup

Hi I have a v9 unmodded ps2, and I have recently backed up GTA-San Andreas onto a DVD-R disc using CloneCD. When I put it in the PS2 it comes up with a message saying “Please insert a Playstation or Playstation 2 format disc.” Other forums have said that DVD-R IS supported by PS2. What is going on here and what do I need to do?

Welcome BaclFlipKid,

you’ll need a mod chip or swap magic disc for your ps2 otherwise you can’t use your backup.

Do I need both or just one of them?

One of them. I corrected my typo sorry for the confusion :flower:
