Have a bit of a problem.
The bios on my v7 says is B10070 2345.
The motherboard is a GH-022.
Has anyone seen this bios designation before? How do you deal with it in terms of installing a modchip? A very reliable professional modchip installer I am having install a Magic 3.1 in my PS2 cant get it to read CD-r's or DVD-r's. This is what he said to me in an email:
I adjusted the laser lens on the system but it will only read original discs. No CD-r no DVD-r. Even w/ the chip out it would not read any DVD-r movies that I have backed up. they work on every DVD player in the house and on every PS2 in the place but yours. This is said to be a trait in the new V.8 systems but they only came out in Japan I thought. I did alot of research and I found out that this is rare but it happens. Its not really a V.8 but it has the same DVD controller set up. Since the bios is not the same as the real V.8 systems all the new chips that are supposed to work on V.8 consoles do not work. I put in a messiah 2 pro 1.30 and a DMS3 2.0 and still no good.
Does anyone have any input? is this correct? Will any modchip in the future support this? or do they now?
