Will DVD9 Movies play on PS2

Can a PS2 SCPH-30001 R play an original DVD9 disk (Planet Earth series) or a 100% copy (Verbatim DVD+R DL booktyped to DVD-ROM) without any upgrades? According to other forums, the 30001 R is version 5 or 6.

Yeah they should play fine no modifying needed, I say should because some PS2’s can be fussy especially if the laser has worn.
