Magic V3.1 and DVD-R Problems
Magic V3.1 and DVD-R Problems –
I have a V7 PS2 with a V3.1 magic mod chip in it. It'll boot any game flawlessly. Although, I have a problem. Sometimes DVD games will freeze during a movie or a loading sequence. I was playing Final Fantasy X-2 and it froze during a loading sequence and then I tried Kingdom Hearts and it froze during a movie so I put in Final Fantasy X and it froze during a movie also. All of those games were the originals and not burned copies. I've tried burned copies of games and they also only freeze during a loading sequence or a movie.
I'm using point W and I heard that it's possible to switch to W1. Does that have to do with games freezing?
ususaly the alt w point is needed if dvd games will not boot at all but you could try it , maby you just have a buggy 3.1 clone .
have you tried cleaning the lens?
nope, ill try that today though, any suggestions on how to clean it?
i have seen this 2 times before. one was caused by the laser. The other was cuased by a clone. Make sure Your laser is clean and also are you sure your chip is official? Clones can cause this problem even with "real" games.
Didn't someone say something like magic chips have a 5V wire, so it could never shut itself off properly after it booted a game? therefore the power surges to the chip kept the game frozen at times?
I think someone fixed it by installing a switch or something to turn off the chip after it booted a game
