S-Box/PS2 Issues, please help!
Hello, I'm having problems with my Playstation2. I have an S-Box Mod Chip installed. It's the external one that hooks up to the USB port with the little chip in it.
Ok, now I have two issues that have been bothering me for a few months now. One, DVD's, originals and back ups fail to load at all. I get "Disc Read Error" messages all the time. I believe it's my laser, because my PS2 is an older model. Do I clean it or just forget about it? The other thing is when using my Modchip to play CD-R backups, alot of them don't work and those that do are slow and choppy.
Examples: NBA2K3 works but very choppy, NFL GameDay 2003 does not work at all, starts loading a game and freezes at the end.
I thought the problem was with my CD-R discs I'm using, but I went and tested them at a store that Mods and they worked perfectly on their systems (internal Modchips, mind you).
What can I do to solve these problems? Clean my lens? I heard Sony repairs lasers for $200. If that's the case should I just get a GameCube since it has all the sports games with even better graphics?
All help appreciated.
