Trying to fix DREs (Adjusting the Voltage ).. –
Recently I've been getting some Disk Read Errors on my backups, and even some of my original copies , but it's not to all of my games, just some of them ( MGS2, MGS3, Xenosaga, Lord of the Ring: ROTK and some more ), so it doesn't seem to be a problem to a specific kind of PS2 games..
So I tried fixing my lens by following these guides:
I did the first one without any problem, and it did improve my ps2 a bit. Regarding the 2nd one though, I have a V4 playstation 2, so could I still do it even though it's different from the version in the tutorial ?
Finally, does using cheap DVDs increase the odds of getting DREs ?
Thanks in advance.
using cheap media definately increases the odds of dre's - it also drastically reduces the life of your laser. adjusting the voltage only delays the inevitable. sounds like you need a new laser.
