PS2 V7 w/DMS3 : Laser Problems
PS2 V7 w/DMS3 : Laser Problems –
My PS2 V7 was modded in July '03 with the DMS3 chip. It quit reading everything. I just installed a new laser yesterday. I can get it to boot audio CDs, original PS & PS2 games except the PS2 DVD-ROM games. I was using Memorex DVD+RW media. Should I be using a different media so it won't wear the laser out? Any ideas how to tweak my PS2 so it will read DVD-ROM games and backup?
Thanks for any help.
I always advise against RW media because it has low reflectivity and demands considerably more power in the laser to make a reflective beam.
Agreed, stick with DVD-R and you should be ok.
