ok, i modded my V9, it went well, no snags or anything. mounted wires as per instructions at DMS3 site, including wire routing, short/thick ground, etc.
psx games - run fine
ps2 games (rip type - written to cd) - run fine
ps2 games (dvd) - normally fine, but about 1 out of every 5 tries i get the following:
- (25% of the time) blue startup screen doesnt go away as fast as it normally would, followed by the red screen (fail to authenticate)
- (75% of the time) makes it past 'playstation 2' logo, but stays at blank screen after that. this also seems to happen more often with dvd+r than dvd-r.
this is a brand new v9 ps2, so i doubt the laser is an issue (but i suppose anythings possible).
soldering/routing should be good. i even broke down and bought the hot glue gun this time around
the games i am trying worked perfect (100% boot), on my older v5/magic setup.
any suggestions as to what can be causing this?
