Need a little assistance with my newly soft-modded PS2.
I've been spending the past few days reading on the softmod, and right now, I'm quite lost
1st of all, the Ps2 is an old SCPH-30001-R. I finally managed to soft-mod it last night via PS2 Game swap (007 agent under fire).
Installed FMCB & other apps using the noobie Package. Everything installed fine, and I didn't change any configuration yet.
I selected the "Multi version install" FMCB, just in case if this makes a difference.
I read up the forum on how to create/play PS2 game backup, and I thought I got it figure it out, and I didn't
OK, 1st, I "obtained" (2) old games ISOs, one is way of samurai 1 & 2 & the other is King of fighters Max Impact.
Both games have ISO & MDS files.
I downloaded ESR patch 0.24, patched both games, and burned it to DVDs using PowerISO (& Cyberlink Power2go).
To cut the story short, I burned it with 4 types of DVDs (just to make sure) : Phillips DVD-R, Win-DATA DVD-R, Verbatim DVD-R & Finally Maxell DVD+R (with both PowerISO & Power2go at 6X speed & some 4X), and the result is the same, It didn't play at all in the PS2. It just shows "Loading.. w/ CD accessing noise" -> "Black/Blank Screen" -> back to "FMCB Main Menu". All the time it kept returning to the main menu. The way I did it was, I put the backup & select ESR -> then Launch CD/DVD.
My question is, am I missing something? Do I have to configure something in ESR or FMCB? any help will be appreciated.
I also read that not all games can be played with ESR patch. So this could be the reason, but I just want to make sure.
I even tried to put it in a USB thumb Drive, select OPL -> configure the USBHD to auto, and OPL didn't pickup the games, BUT last night I read that you have to format it in a special way and rename the games before it can be recognized. That will be my next plan/project if this backup thing is not successful.
Thanks again guys, sorry for the long story
