Magic III V4 problem –
I just installed a Magic III for a friend on his V4 USA console. PSone mode and DVD movies work fine. Original PS2 DVDs work fine also.
The problem is, DVD-R games don't work. I go in ps2 mode, boot up, and it gives the screen that says to insert a ps2 disc. If I try to boot it in PSone mode, I believe it did the same thing.
I checked all my soldering connections 3 times. Even resoldered some. Gives the same problem.
Also when the ps2 goes to the main menu, the animation in the background freezes.
Any help would be appreciated. And yes there's a possibility that legs from one of the ICs may have been soldered together, but I tried to be careful and am pretty sure that they didn't get soldered together.
