Magic-2 problem, imports not booting
Magic-2 problem, imports not booting –
I recently had a Magic-2 chip installed into my PS2. When I got it back and started testing games, all of my US originals and backups booted correctly but none of my original Jap imports (FFX international and Xenosaga) will boot. I e-mailed the installer to ask him about this and he informed me that it is a problem with the chip itself. I find this odd considering that every review and piece of information I have read to date states that the Magic-2 will boot import games with no trouble (which is the main reason why I bought it). So I'm curious, does anybody else have a problem with the Magic-2 and original Jap import games? Is this a serious flaw in the chip or is it more likely there is a problem with the installation?
We just installed Magic 2 v7 NTSC and Jap imports boot perfectly. DVD9 movies boot with Magic 2 so Xenosaga shouldn't be a problem.
Sounds to me like something in A - I.
Guichi, I didn't personally do the install. I sent it to www.freedomlives.com to get modded so I can't personally vouch for the technical details of the install. Thank you both for the feedback, though. I'll contact the installer and see about getting this remedied.
To confirm Guichi's point, on US NTSC v7 with Magic 2, PS1 imports play (PAL/JAP).
Aerick Thats what I'm saying!!!!!!!!!!
It reports the disk type according to Mr. magic 2.

Well, just a few minutes ago I powered up the PS2 with FFX International in the tray and it booted right up. I tried my other imports and they also work correctly. I can't really explain why but I'm happy that they now work regardless of the reason . Thanks to all for your suggestions, though.
