Can't flash CC 1.2 and install BM
Can't flash CC 1.2 and install BM –
This is my first install. It is on a version 4 using a CC 1.2.
The installation went OK and the machine can start and load orginal games. It can also start games from the region 1 which it couldnĀ“t before.
But when I start the firmware upgrade using the 29 hacked version it exits out of the firmware upgrade under 1 sec. (I have downloaded an older version that does the same)
The same problem occures with the BM installation fails aswell saying it can't create the BM directory.
In the system information menu tells me correctly that I am using
Crystal Chip 1.2
Console BIOS 1.5
Does anyone have a good idea what is wrong
There's nothing wrong with the firmware upgrade, it simply is that fast. Or do you want it to take a minute or two?
Are you sure that there's enough free space on your MemCard? BM needs about 700kb. And are you using an original $ony MC? Others can cause various problems, like the one you experience. Reformating it could solve that prob.

Thanks for your quick reply.
And no, I would not prefere to wait several minutes although I would wish to have some kind of acknowledge that it worked. :->
As for the mc, you are right I have only tried with a 24mb unofficial mc. I will try with an original later.
I have now upgraded the firmware with the 29, and I would have expected my backup copy of my original games to work. But as you can proberly imagine without any luck. I have tried with Nero to copy a game on both a DVD-R and a DVD+R just to be on the safe side with the lowest possible burn speed. So I ask myself, Has it been upgraded or is my PS2 not capable of reading DVD-R and DVD+R or is my disk copy with Nero bad. Any good Ideas how to proceed?
Are there any list that indicated which PS2 versions that can read DVD-R or DVD+R?
Nero is the best burn program I know, I always use it for my backup needs. DVD-R should work on every PS2. I think it's a media issue. Get some good media like Verbatim. Look here to see what quality your media has: http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm I only buy first class media from Verbatim, which had never let me down.

I am using the Verbatim disk (they are best quality according to the Disk info program you gave me a link to)
I have been testing and creating a lot of backup games of differnet medias: CD, DVD-R and DVD+R
The fun stuf is that backup games on CD works but games on DVD fails.
It looks like my laser does not like DVD-R or DVD+R or could it be something else? Could it be necessary to replace the laser (Remember it is a version 4 PS2 I have)
Yeah, could really be a laser issiue. My PS2 had exactly the same symptoms when the laser died (CD yes, DVD no). You could try to calibrate your laser lens, that can help a lot afaik, there should be some tutorials online about how to do that (try google or the forum search).
