I'm using version 1.8 of Free McBoot and i have the normal options that were installed with it loaded onto a Fat model PS2.
I have also ripped the ISO file from my disk using IMGBURN and patched the ISO with the ESR_disc_patcher_GUI_v0.24a on AWS with a DVD-R disk.
However, when i try to start up the disk i burned it simply goes to a black screen for about a minute then back to the main menu. When i start up the system with the burned disk in the slot it shows the Free McBoot logo for a longer period of time, a short black screen then to the main menu.
At first the only thing that would work was God Hand, and nothing else would burn right, then i figured out someone had mixed DVD+R disks into the stack of blank disks and i kicked myself over that. So i went out and got more DVD-R Disks and tried burning the games again after patching them. No luck. And for some reason not even God Hand will boot up and i don't know why. I didn't change anything up in FMCB since i last tested it.
Now whenever i try to put any DVD-R disk in the system it just says "Disk Read Error" and never boots up.
I try booting it from the Splash screen at start up and it just shows the ESR logo screen and nothing else but black after that.
Can anyone help me out here? Are my ESR paths in FMCB configurations off or does something sound like it was put out of place? It seems every time i get closer to making this work something else gets thrown into the mix.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
