Okay my buddy just modded his v9 ps2 with a Magic V. The problem we're having is that it will not read anything on CD format like; PS1 originals, PS1 backups, PS2 CDR's, Audio Cds, or Audio Cd-rs.
And before you say it, yes I know how to switch it into ps1 mode etc... And I know how to burn things properly for a magic chip as I have one in my ps2.
The console was ofcourse completely functional before the mod.
The system is booting DVDs; PS2 originals, PS2 backups, Dvd movies, DVD-r movies.
And to boot dvds with the Magic chips you do need to switch it into ps1 mode so I know that the mod install is switching. I've searched everywhere and can't find a solution I've also tried cleaning his laser to no avail. Is it possibly the "s" wire or some other wire on the install?
I just find it odd that it will read dvds completely fine in any format but will not read a cd or cdr of anytype. This is the first battle i'm losing with a ps2. Tomorrow or today actually damn i need sleep I'm going to double check all of the soldering but we tested continuity before putting it back together though. And it was installed under video magnification so I know there aren't any solder balls anywhere.
