V9 motherboard read errors on 3 different DVD drives!
i bought a faulty v9 ps2 off ebay for its motherboard (fried mine trying to install a modchip), the description said it was having disc read errors so i assumed it was just a faulty laser.
i have tried it with the the drive it came with, the dvd drive that was in the v9 i broke (dvd was working fine) and even a drive from a v7, but all of them fail to read any discs.
all 3 drives seem to spin fine and are making various clicking noises, so i assume its trying to read the discs, but they all eventually give up and i get a DRE.
is there something ive missed? could it be something on the motherboard thats faulty? ive checked the fuses and they seem fine.
thanks in advance
