Yet another DVD9 thread...
I've got a Magic II red pcb in a v7 machine.
Seems like everything is in working order except for my PS2 original of Xenosaga. If I try to boot up with the RESET, the PS2 just goes to the Broswer/System Info interface. When I go into the browser, the PS2 just sits there trying to read the disc forever. With the GS2 method, the I select "Start Game without Codes" and after I swap the GS2 disc with the Xenosaga disc, nothing happens. It just sits at the "Press X to start game without codes/Press 0 to return."
This really is a big deal for me b/c I do buy original PS2 software, and Xenosaga is one of those games that I actually played through.
I've read through charlie_ps2's thread about the DVD9 issues, and tried doing the GS2 trick which still didn't fix the problem?
Any suggestions on solving the problem?
