Ripper 2 boots PS1 games but not PS2?!
Ripper 2 boots PS1 games but not PS2?! –
Ive just put in a Ripper2 modchip in my V5 PS2...
Ive also double checked all points and the chip has a stable 3.3v power supply gettin to it...
but for some reason the LED on it dosnt come on??
It boots PS1 backups though, but not PS2 backups !!
does anyone have any idea's?? could the chip be faulty?
If a PS2 original boots then the machine is ok, you have a bad chip or did a bad install.
pS: I had some Ripper2 chips with the same problem, shortened some wires and it solved the problem. Though I have seen several dud Ripper2 chips.
how are you trying to boot the dvd-r. I have a ripper2 chip and the only way i can get dvd-r to boot is to wait until the browser screen appears and then insert the dvd-r.
It should work as normal, insert PS2 DVD based game (original or backup it does not matter) and from standby one tap on the power button, and/or X on the joypad. Double tap is for PSX mode if I remember correctly. By the way, Ripper2 starting procedure is quite annoying, you have to play with the Reset button plus the controller aswell, others like D ... S solved that much better.
I have just tried locating the instructions for the ripper2 from there website, unfortunately it is down at the moment. but I have got a v9 pal ps2 chipped with the ripper2 (since november 2003) and the only way i can get to boot dvd-r properly is to wait until the browser screen appears and then insert the backup. and yes i agree with you the starting procedure is annoying.
