I recently had a Magic 3.1 chip installed in my V5 PS2 and noted an interesting trend in regards to the ability to boot DVD-R backups. While all DVD-R backups without labels affixed to the discs work great every time, the backups with glossy labels affixed to them will not boot 95% of the time. I read Charlie_ps2's informative thread regarding DVD-R issues and thought reflectivity may have something to do with my problem. Is this problem isoloated to the Magic chip, or will I have the problems with a Messiah 2 chip? Any insight on the matter would be greatly appreciated. I must note that I had absolutely no trouble reading labeled backup discs when using a no-solder modchip on the same V5 unit, nor have I ever had problems in the past with labeled backups on the PSone.
I apologize if this issue has already been discussed before, however, I was unsuccessful in finding any related threads when performing a search via this forum.
