If you bought the PS3 recently, it's probably not compatible with PS2 games:

You might be able to find a PS2-compatible version on ebay or craigslist.

If your system isn't reading it, I would say that you probably can't play it. Only a few of the models from the original release of the system is fully backwards compatible. The majority of the systems will only play PS1 games as far as previous systems' games. Sorry, but you can still buy PS2s and for very cheap.

You would need to find a stock 20GB or 60GB older-model PS3 to properly run PS2 games. Those older-models had the hardware-based emulation VIA the Emotion Engine and could run most games pretty flawlessly. I've never had a problem, and I've got a 20GB upgraded to a 250GB (yay laptop drives!)

PS3 is worlds ahead of it's predecessor. Internal HD means no more memory cards to save game data. Blu Ray readability means it doubles as your Blu Ray player. Online game play/updates is also a plus. Plus you can surf the web (assuming you have wireless internet). I really dig the wireless controllers (though I DON"T dig the $60 price tag for an extra one).

While I still play my PS2 I have to mention the graphics on my Gran Turismo games have such a phenomenal difference between the consoles. What I thought was state of the art 9 years ago looks like outdated Atari games today.
