SMS "Illegal Disk"
give us some more info. is it a cd or dvd? what format? do you have a modchip?
maybe you have an modbo chip
Sorry for my poor english, im from Paraguay. In both cases, cd and dvd... SMS only read the files in the BOOT CD or DVD, when i change it, it says "Illegal Disk, press Cross to continue".... and is hard to detect another DVD or CD media disk... why is that? I dont know what CHIP i have.
Well, if you don't know what chip it is, then neither do we, which makes it hard to help you properly.

If you seek out all info on this stuff you will find that EEUG has prepared a minimal file set for making a valid DVD-Video disc. You can then use one of the folders on it (I like adding an AUDIO_TS folder, because that is part of the DVD-Video standard, but unused by EEUG's file set), and add your own files into it. Since the disc appears to be a normal DVD-Video disc, the PS2 bios accepts it as playable even on a DVD-R. (Whereas a DVD-ROM formatted DVD-R would be rejected.)
For CD-R you'll need to use another program EEUG made, called CDXplorer, which allows you to create a CD-Audio formatted disc, but holding normal data files placed on it through CDXplorer. Since the resulting ISO appears to be a proper CD-Audio disc, the PS2 bios accepts it as playable even on a CD-R. (Whereas a CD-ROM formatted CD-R would be rejected.)
Using the above methods any PS2 running SMS should be able to access the data discs, regardless of the mod-chip used and even if none at all is installed.

THANKS A LOT dlanor!!!.... problem fixxed! Other method i used is:
-In nero, make an DVD (UDF/ISO), put in this order: DUMMY (dummy file), SYSTEM, BOOT.elf (sms) and the videos files...
I make this in each DVD .
cheers from Paraguay!
dlanor this is the exact same thing i was talking about in the uLE forums...

the MI only makes the first disc thats in the drive read...
due to the Auto Sleep feature of the modchip that they proudly speak of on their site...frankly its a pain in the A$$...
how could a modchip possibly damage itself by overheating...
not like its a 1ghz procsessor...
where i can find this dlanor?: "EEUG has prepared a minimal file set for making a valid DVD-Video disc"
This file set?
