Anybody know why my PS2 wouldn't like Final Fantasy 7?

It’s the weirdest thing. My PS2 just says disc error on all 3 discs. It effortlessly loads all my other PS1 games no prob so I just don’t get it. It makes a bunch of bad sounding stopping and starting sounds when I load FF7 but not any other game. There aren’t any scratches on my discs either.

Also, I can get it to play sometimes if I load a couple PS1 games and then try it, but it transitions scenes really slowly.

Shit’s fucked up. Any ideas what’s going on?

Do you have any of the smoothing or disc speed options on in the PS2 setup menu? Try turning them on/off to see if it makes a difference.
