Does not read CD-Rs
first of all, this is a great site.
game burned at 4x with
tried on games, WWE Crush Hour, Summer Heat Beach Volleyball, Moto GP3, and Soul Calibur 2 with CDRWIN.
and some how games from mIRC burned onto Philips CD-Rs doesn't seems to boot.
my friend have this other game on Imation CD-R and it work, kinda with a few tries.
My DVDs are working good, no problem, only CDs, not even original CDs work.
I searched and come up with like RECALIBRATING the laser, how hard is it? Is it just like turning a screw or something??
What do you guys think here?
thanks for helping a newbie out.
tried cleaning it??...or else you're gonna have to adjust your cd pot, charlie has a guide here somewhere about it, don't adjust more than 10% of the original value
magic's and cd rips dont work toagther as good as other chips like messiah dms3 apple
my magic 3.1 works great with ps2 cdrs
Arrrrrrrrrr, me magic chip (when I hads one) worked just fine with rips. I agrees...try a cleanin' yer laser Edu. If'n that don't fix yer problem, then aye, it may need adjusting/recalibrating.
i think i found my problem......
my magic might be fake, as i got it from friend and he got it from shopatchris.com.
serval things i found online is that fake chips doesn't tends to direct boot games and dvd movie.
And that is exactly what I found out is that when booting ps1 games or dvd movies, i need to hold reset from sleep mode and let go when blue light comes on.
The rips that i tried did kinda boot with that but it will stop at the PlayStation logo and with **n corrupted letters.
Is this a fake?
You need to increase the cd power pot on your lazer unit just a tiny bit, that's all. They all darken from their own heat, and eventually burn out, but you can tune the pots once or twice durning the lazers lifetime, to clear up read errors that occur later in the lazer's lifetime. Yeah, it just burns them out quicker, but I'd rather 6 or 7 more months of smooth performance, than a year of freezing, hesitation, dre's, and the like. CD-R's don't have as much reflected light, and they give trouble a lot easier.
We hate to see people didn't know anything about magic 3.1 and just said the chip is fake. You can click here to read Operation Procedure for magic 3.1,
i have the same specs as edu_tes, a v7 with a magic 3.1. The thing has so many problems, i couldnt run any of the rips i got off of mirc. but the games i bought off the guy that put my chip in work fine. i thinnk its the cd media thats makes the difference, i havnt tried the playing around with the laser, i think im gona try that next
btw, i think that a v7 and a magic 3.1 are just a bad mix, ive heard too many problems with that certain combination
well, i used to have a magic 3.1 on my v4 and it sucked ballz, i had probs like u described. guess its different for everyone. get a quality mod like m2 or dms3 and u wont have to worry what console u got
