No. It won't work without a modchip. As for loading cds and dvds, I couldn't say. Most likely it loads cds faster (easier for the laser to read).

actually dvds run better then cds. its well known that ps2 has a harder time reading cds then dvds (you can hear the difference).

bad dvdrips (dvds raped to cd) have been the main cause of a ps2's laser to die out quickly but not all dvd-rips are bad, just get the ones that are complete or near complete and avoid any that have a lot of bgm and vids missing.

no nead for a modchip bootdiscs work fine. you can either get a fliptop or make a slidecard. (google it for instructions) I've been using bootdiscs and a fliptop with no problems for 2 years.
I originally got the fliptop cuz my PS2 took a header off the entertainment center and the drawer wouldn't open all the way anymore. it came with the swapmagic bootdiscs and I haven't looked back since.

I dont see why not to mod a PS2 because 1, games cant detect it (unless its a crappy one) 2, you play online, and they dont even know (my friend plays Socom II online all the time and its burned)

I would say modchip, because with bootdisc you need a fliptop or a card holder.

yeah the modchip is gonna be better, no swapping ect. but if you don't wanna solder or open your ps2 (void the warrenty) the swapmagic discs and a slide card a good alternative. I haven't run across any games that don't work with swapmagic yet.
