I posted this in the main CD->DVD thread, but it looks like no one's really posting in there any more. I apologize if I've broken some cardinal rule (I did read the FAQ and don't think so, but...) in re-posting this in a new thread:
I'm running Free McBoot 1.8 on a fat PS2 30001 NTSC.
I've successfully booted several DVD-R backups and everything seems to running perfectly on the console.
Now I tried to apply the CD->DVD tutorial on my ISO of Crazy Taxi... followed the directions step by step (DVD Scan, 1.5G z.z dummy file, ESR patch, etc) and burned it on a DVD-R. ESR recognizes it, but when I go to launch CD/DVD, the screen freezes on a pink/magenta color.
Any ideas what went wrong?
