need help w/ some kind of chip and softmod
need help w/ some kind of chip and softmod –
i have two playstations 2. slim, with chip that plays all backups and works well and fat one that has some kind of chip (12c509a is printed on top of chip) but it won't play backups and i don't know what is that chip doing anyway. i have memory card. i don't have swap magic, ar max, codebreaker, etc... retail disks. i allready try to start installer from burned disc that i prepared following the fmcb burn disc guide but nothing is happening. when i insert the disc it says "thare is no data". what to do for installing fmcb on both consoles.
well it could be the laser issues and how did you burned the files to the disk ?
Does it read original game discs, If so, then that is good if not then Install fmcb through one of your slim ps2 and do the multi install , and then use that memory card and put it in your fat ps2 and see what happens.

ok. i tried same disc on both consoles. bu it didn't worked. mostly, i think i didn't burned disc well. so can you be helpfull and give some dummy guide link or so...
it can read (r) discs. laser is ok.
yeah it might be but can you post your steps like how did you made your ISO ? and which program you used to made an ISO ? and how did you burned your ISO by which program and on which speed ? etc..
i followed the instructions for installing using burned cd from fmcb site.
i downloaded dummy user package. i used to extract INSTALL folder and .elf instaler file into cd-gen dir. then i started gen ps2 and made iso. i have set the lba fix to chm file that i made using same guide. then burned cd using magic iso, nero sand so on. no disc works.
Apparently you are having trouble composing and/or burning a valid PS2 disc, even though your modchips can boot valid burned discs. This means that it is best to eliminate the stage where you have to modify a disc yourself before burning.

Unpack one of those CD/DVD ISOs and burn to the appropriate CD-R/DVD-R discs through ImgBurn (freeware, so just google if you don't have it already). A disc burned this way should boot with any mod-chip available for the PS2.
That disc will allow you to run uLaunchELF (aka: uLE), which in turn allows you to boot any other PS2 elfs from a variety of media, including a USB stick. So you can then prepare the FMCB installer package on a USB device instead, and use the uLE FileBrowser to start that FMCB installer elf file (USB == "mass:/" in the uLE FileBrowser).
