I'm trying to get my v4 ps2 modded with a magic 3.1 and I'm having some troubles. Heres what the problem is:
It DOES NOT play and DVDR backups but it DOES play CDR backups. The media isn't the cheapest stuff either and has worked in many other ps2. It will play dvd movies.. although not sure if it will play movie backups yet. I've seen this unit play a dvdr game one time and I'm not sure why this happened.... i think the stars and the moon must have been aligned just right or something . Another thing you guys should know: I put in a "new" drive which supposedly has a brand new laser in it (from richspsxparts.com). So I'm guessing that my install has some issues. Can someone tell me if anything looks screwed up with the routing of the wires from the picture. Or can anyone tell me what specific wires I should watch out for because they can cause such a problem. Thx for all replies.
