I've read a few posts from people running a PS2 module as DVD player. The concept is appealing. I am hoping for some feedback from people running this set-up on how well the PS2 functions when the vehicle is operating on corrugated/rough roads. My main concern is whether the disc drive is prone to skipping under these conditions.

Thanks in advance,
Hugh

Hugh,
Experience from others is that DVD skips readily when in a vehicle, others have bought those all-in-one DVD players and have found same problem, (no brands mentioned). You can get made for vehicle DVD players for under $200 now, may be a better option. XBOX better for vehicles as you can load games on to hard drive and use with less problems while driving. I use in-car DVD and TFT screen in a portable unit, works O.K.

In agreeance with Hugh.The PS2 is designed for a stable surface only.It doesnt have a shock absorber device built into it like car cd and dvd players.
Most of the shops that mod these things will recommend against it.

I think Hollywood is partly to blame with the movie 'The Fast and the Furious" which shows high performance cars drag racing while the passenger races on GranTourismo 3.
It took me a long time to convince my disapointed 13yo son it wasnt feasible!
