PS2reality divx player and magic 3 cant swap
PS2reality divx player and magic 3 cant swap –
I have a v5 ps2 with magic 3
when I create a cdr with the player and an avi together life is good, but when I put the player on a seperate cdr from the avi's I am able to get to the main menu, but when I eject the cdr with the player and insert the avi disk the player seems to lockup as I am unable to browse, configure etc. Even if I put the player cdr back in the same thing happens, lockup. Anyone have any ideas?
What Id like to do is be able to load the player on cdr and then swap with a dvd-r loaded with avi's.
Otherwise i guess I can just load the player onto the dvd-r along with all the movies.

I've not got a modchip but a no solder mod but from what i've had to do is when i swap a disc containing the avi's i have to eject the cd the same way as i loaded the player itself IE keep my finger on the eject button so the ps2 doesnt know ive swapped the cd, when i ejected it the normal way it just locked up like happend to you.
well m8 duno what to tell you but i have a mgic 3.1 and i have n/p booting my avi cdr and the player is sepret from the avi cdr maybe its the chip
Hey rockomole, I have the same problem with "should be Magic3.1" chip (not installed myself and yet to open PS2.
Exactly at which point do you swap?
I have PAL v3, with magic 3, and i can swap Realityplayer with movie cd whenever i want. I have no problems
I think it's the problem of mod instalation, not the chip problem
i have exactly the same problem, but one of the "better" modchips, a "ripper".
It seems, that the modchip itself is only active, when booting first, after pressing the reset button. After that when swapping with action replay or media player, it is not active anymore.
I have the same problem with all swapping tools. Other modchips are activated when either pressing reset or eject.
In my opionion its the modchip because everything works fin but the swap AFTER booting with usual reset.
i swap after i hit the browser botton when the browser comes up then i put the disk in and wait
i had this problem as well. got an early magic2 ship that doesn't have gameshark support, so i installed a momentary switch on the reset line. now i boot up with media player or gameshark, swap disk, press x button, and hit the switch to activate magic2 chip and make it read backups.
not a great solution, but the switch is cheap and it works.
