PlayStation 2: How to play any DVD

New drivers fail to stop Region 1 playback

Poor old Sony. A Register reader informs us that there is now apparently a 100 per cent foolproof way of loading Region 1 DVDs, even after the latest batch of drivers, designed to prevent this, have been loaded. "Load the DVD into the PlayStation 2. At the browser screen, select the CD icon then press and hold square and then circle until the DVD menu appears, holding both buttons all the time. Then there are two ways to play the movie; you can either select the play icon or the movie start icon which is in the middle to the far left. If one doesn't work the other one will."
