Matrix Infinity Not Playing PS1
Matrix Infinity Not Playing PS1 –
I recently installed a Matrix Infinity 1.0 mod chip into my V7 PS2 but it will not play original or burn't PS1 games. The screen goes black for about 30 seconds, then it goes to the red tunnel saying that it needs a real game. When I play PS2 games though, the PS2 logo pops up and tells me Infinity 1.0 on the bottom right side and the game plays fine. I haven't tried a burn't PS2 game because I don't have any yet.. (I am deployed on a ship) Can someone please tell me if I have done something wrong. Thank you.
Try upgrading your firmware?
No, I haven't tried upgrading the firmware yet. Where/how can I do that. Once again, I am on a ship.. so it will be hard to download it. Can you e-mail me the files if they are over 1mb? I know for the xbox's I cant dl bios files because they are only accessible via mIRC, and we cant use that here. If you could send me the upgrades though, that would be great. thanks
one other thing.. when i power on the PS2, it takes about 30 seconds for it to actually come on. The lights come on, but the blue intro tunnel wont start for about 30 sec... and ideas?
nevermind.. i dl'ed the firmware upgrade..... do i just burn it to a cd, or is there other software to add?
I forgot to ask, do you have a REAL MI or is it a clone? If you have the REAL MI, then read on, otherwise STOP! DO *NOT* UPGRADE YOUR FIRMWARE. Find out what type of clone you got. I should've caught this before, but in your first post you said that you got a MI 1.0. I know that modbo's go by version numbers like that. The real Infinity's don't have version numbers. (The FW is upgradable so stating the version doesn't really do much.)
Again, don't do this until you are sure you have a real MI. You know how to burn bin/cue files? If you got Nero, goto File > Open > Select cue file to burn.
As for the 30 second thing, upgrade firmware first and see if it still happens. Who knows, the firmware might fix it.
hmm... thanks.. i am not sure if it is a real one or not... it looks EXACTLY like the all of the pictures online and on the back of the chip, it has "infinity" plated on the it, so i am pretty sure that it is the real deal.. but to make sure, please tell me how i can find out.
One simple way to know is how much did you pay for it? There is another way here: http://www.psx-scene.com/forums/show...4&page=1&pp=15
But once you do that, your chip is dead. If you paid around $20 USD or less, then you have a clone, if you paid $45 USD or more, you are likely to have a real infinity. Also where did you buy it from. Some of the members might be able to tell you if that particular site has been selling clones.
i paid 50 for it, so it should be good then
