Magic2 doesnt boot originals!?!
i just bought a new ps2 today and since i had another magic2 chip lying around i decided to put it in. it was the magic2 with the v7 underlined sticker that has the added Z wire for Gameshark support. i got the chip fully installed and it would not boot ps2 original games at all, but it would boot everything else!!
ps1 original- OK
ps1 backups- OK
ps2 originals- FAIL
ps2 cd-r backups- OK
ps2 dvd-r backups- OK
I checked and double checked all the bios points, and the cd/dvd controller points, for this problem what points specifically should i be looking at and also might long wires have a role in this. I tried removing the Z wire to see if it had anything to do with it, but still the same results. As of right now i removed the chip and all wires from the console and it boots originals fine now. The console is a 30001R, with a v5 board, same as my other ps2, so i'm very familar with the installation. Any thoughts on what might be doing this. Thanks.
