    Yes. Actually in many instances my PS2 reads DVD-Rs better than my other DVD
    player.

    As in DVD-R with video, apparently. With PS2 games, no.

    If a PlayStation2 can read DVD-R discs, then it will also be able to read PS-2
    games.

    The PS-2 drive isn't the worst. At least when the PS-2 drive goes south, you
    can fix it rather easily as dust accumulation is likely to be the main problem.
    A thorough airblast cleaning of the entire drive AND proper relube of the
    kicker mechanism usually restores these things to proper working condition.

    The "honor" of worst drive in a console belongs to the Thomson variant of the
    X-Box DVD-ROM drive. They can not read anything but press-replicated CDs and
    DVDs and are almost always prone to irreparable failure. If you are going to
    get an X-Box, make sure it has the Samsung variant drive, which is actually a
    great drive and will read just about ANYTHING.

    A Samsung drive in an X-Box can be identified by observing two small circular
    holes on the disc tray, both adjacent to the cut-out on the tray for the
    traverse assembly.

    A Philips drive in an X-Box can be identified by a rather large traverse
    cut-out on the disc tray that travels at a very slight angle.

    A Thomson drive in an X-Box can be identified by a traverse cut-out on the disc
    tray that travels straight. - Reinhart
