My first chip –
I want to get a modchip pretty soon. I was wondering what you guys recommend for v7. DMS 3 is a too expensive for me so forget that. I want it to be direct booting dvds and cds and everything. All places sell DMS and magic, so should I go with a magic V?
I have installed numerous magic V chips. and i think for the money they are great. i have had no problems with them. they work so simple even my young kids can use it. my personal machine is a V7 and with the V chip and no complaints whatsoever. thats my 2cents.
i almost forgot to tell you when you do install the magic V it is a good idea to somehow wrap the r wire with a ground wire to shield it. i learned this on the first magic v i installed. It only booted 50% of the time before i added this wire. For more about this check out http://www.ps2newz.net/forums/showth...threadid=20825
I think I'm going to have Loy do it. Does he do the thing you suggested above?
not sure but as many as he has done i would think so. i would ask him as this makes this chip work flawlessly.
yep, that is where i order my chips from. the are good to deal with.
The shipping was almost the same price as the chip. Made me a little mad but I ordered it. Yay!
Maybe I'll do this myself actually. What materials would I need?
also any other tips, common mistakes, etc
