Installed duo - worked well once...
(edited - I've got a duo, not duo2 :) )
Hey guys. I bought a duo modchip for my v4 ps2 and installed it. It did take a while since it was my first time, but wasn't too difficult :)
Anyhow, I put it all back together, figured how how to hold down various buttons to get backups to boot and booted my PSX backup of breath of fire III. I played it for about 20 minutes, then left for a few hours to do other things.
When I turned it on again and tried to load the game again, it wouldn't work (the red screen saying "insert ps2 or ps1 game" came up). I tried other backups and my one ps2 backup and they also gave the same problem. It's like the ps2 isn't modded.
Before I de-solder everything and do it over again, is there any suggestions of what may be wrong? I just think it's weird that it would work once and not again unless the chip somehow fried during its first use.
Also, I didn't quite follow the rules for the power and ground wires. I used 3x 30awg wires for the power and 1x 14awg wire for the ground. The power wire length is only about 1 inch, but the ground is about 4 inches. Could the power/ground be my problem? is 3x 30awg enough for the power?
