I have a v4 & v7 I can't get to boot dvd-r.
CD/CD-R games boot but not DVD/DVD-R
It is likely that one of the following causes applies:
The W wire or the R may be incorrectly connected.
The laser lens is dirty & should be cleaned with a cleaning disk or a cotton swab. The DVD is read at a higher frequency than a CD and results are more sensitive to a dirty lens.
The laser needs re-calibrating because of wear and tear. This is a complex process separately described in an FAQ article.
The laser needs replacement because of severe wear & tear.
On v5/v6 models, the CLK wire needs attention as per a later article in this guide.
