PS2 V5/6 fitted with Magic 3. PS2 will play all original games and DVD movies. Will play all my backed-up PS1 and PS2 both CD-R and DVD-R games but will NOT play any backed up movies.
***NOTE*** The PS2 would not play DVD-R movie backups before the mod chip was fitted.
CD Player 1.20
Playstation Driver 1.10
DVD Player 2.10E
The DVD-R blanks that I use are either cheapo generation 3 or Datasafe White generation 3 (Ritek dye same as Traxdata). All the DVD-R game back-up's play fine but I just can't get a movie back-up to play.
I have ripped with Smartripper, stripped to the movie only with IFOEdit removing region and macrovision and burnt with Nero V22.214.171.124 OEM. I have even used Prassi V2 using the global image method with a small DVD and kept everything and that would not play either.
All the copy's play on stand alone DVD players and PC's with no problem but the PS2 will not play them.
I have tried all the boot methods.... Put the DVD-R in the tray and close it, Power down, Power on then press the reset button until the blue LED comes on then release.... result is either a request to insert a PS2 disc or a black screen.
I cant afford to let the kids use the originals as they will not put them back into their cases after use they like most kids just leve them laying around to get scratche up.
What is the problem do I have a faulty Magic 3 or have I got a wire with a dry joint. I presume the DVD-R's are ok as all the games play so the laser can read them. The DVD movies are PAL region 2.
