Lawsuit:

On July 16, 2002 a class action lawsuit was filed against Sony Computer Entertainment in the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo. The lawsuit addressed consumer reports of inappropriate "no disc" error messages and other problems associated with playing DVDs and CDs on the PlayStation 2.

Sony settled the lawsuit by compensating the affected gamers with $25 USD, a free game from a specified list, and reduced cost for repair or replacement at SCEA’s discretion.
