DVD drive not recognised after install
added: version 5 of PAL ps2
i see the logo screen for a few secs (so controller connected ok) :)
even if i have an original game in the DVD drive, it will not boot it
istead it goes to system config / browser
when i browse it ONLY shows the memory card... no DVD
ADDED: the DVD drive will eject and retract but does not spin the disc once inserted
unsure if the DVD icon would be there if there is no game in it, or if it only shows up when a game is in... can someone confirm which, please?
thoughts are that maybe the matrix doesnt recognise the DVD drive
i disabled it, and it still doesnt show in the browser
i have checked all the connections, and the ribbons are home:
:( BAD NEWS :( is that i screwed up the 3.3v wire- here's how:
i lifted the end of the resistor (the side near the end of the chip)
for now i have jammed the 3.3v wire back in little hole (hoping there is a connection!) and the soldered joint (and a lump off the side of the resistor) pushed against the body bit of the resistor.
the thing is, the matrix must be getting power, it boots ok with the logo, and tirangle circle DOES get the matrix menu , so the power must be getting to it ok. so i dont THINK this is the problem...
so if any genius knows what to look out for, PLEASE let me know, any and all advise welcome, as i'm about to put the whole lot in the bin
MANY thanks - hope someone can help!!!!!
