I've been getting "Disc read error" messages on my PS2 lately. They've been happening more and more frequently. Last night Burnout 3 wouldn't load, so I got online and found some information about a fix. It requires taking the PS2 apart a little bit and adjusting a little gear that controls the distance from the laser to the disc. I didn't have to bother with that though - I just got in there and cleaned the laser lens. Hopefully that will keep it working.
