HK Silver DVD's

Should an HK Silver dvd work on an unmodded PS2?

Reason being all 3 of mine are modded but m8 of mine has unmodded early version and can't get hk silver to work.

Unsure whether u have to be modded or just a reflectivity/poor laser issue.

Come On!!!

Someone must have a HK Silver and an unmodded PS2 lying around!!

Do I have to rip the messiah out of one of mine to test it?

The only reason I ask is that HK silvers are pressed and are exact back-ups of the original and therefore it would stand to reason that it should work in an unmodded PS2.

Can anyone enlighten Me??

Yup for sure, HK silvers won't work on an unmodded machine unless it's a movie. I can actually vouch for that because I had an unmodded machine and a HK silver didn't work on it.

Probably not. It against the forum rules. Check yr PM's though matey.

Thanx for the replies. Thought that this'd probably be the case although as far as I know an HK Silver is a pressed exact copy of the original so in theory should work.

Not even gonna try and get my head around it!

Doesn't bother me. All 3 of my PS2's modded so not too bothered and as far as my m8's concerned, its just another reason for him to let me drop a messiah 2 in his PS2.

Once again ta for replies.

Needs a modchip. Search the forum on the word "wobble" and you'll find the explanation that I've given before. (I think it was on this forum).

An HK Silver is a back-up thats been pressed in a professional dvd creator and not burnt on a dvd writer.

So HK Silvers are 9.4gb pressed blanks...or they are pre-made back-ups and therefor illegal? If so i use them to back-up DVD9 games fully with my Sony DRU-500a? And just what does the "HK" stand for?

You can not copy dvd9 games unless a rip kit is made for it to shrink it down to 4.7 gigs. HK=Hong Kong

Then if that is the case bighap....what is all the fuss over these discs then? Just curious....i mean am i missing something here or what....if a dvd9 game can't be exact copied to these discs no more than any other disc that will fit in any DVD burner on the market....then whats so special about them over regular dvd-r discs i can buy?

HK Silvers are nothing special however as someone explained
They're stamped/pressed and silver like as if you were to buy a music CD..or Regular Ps2 DVD Format Games I suppose..
But once again the Q&A towards whether DVD9 can be copied or not is NO!!
Consumers can only purchase DVD5 Blanks and Burners only support DVD5 Format Discs..DVD9 are NOT BURNED they're pressed..Someday sometime DVD9 burning technology will appear..For all we know it's already around the corner just hasn't surfaced yet..

So they are basically getting rave reviews for their look right....i guess i get it. I just thought that people were saying they were pressed like actual DVD9 discs(ie two layers on one side)....but really people are talking about them becuz they look like regular PS2 games...albeit without labels unless u make your own. Seems stupid now but to each his own i guess....thanks A03 for the clarification. :-)
