Question Gameshark\Magic question??

sponsored links

The kid bought a Gameshark to use for cheat codes only. It is the new Version 4.

Here is what I am experiencing...I have 2 PS2's - one with a Magic 3.1 and the other with a Magic 5. Both PS2's are version 7. The Gameshark will boot with the Magic 5 ONLY if the chip is asleep. It works fine with original games but not with backup dvdrs...obviously if the chip is asleep. BUT, with the Magic 3.1 PS2, it will come up WITHOUT putting the chip to sleep, but still won't allow backups to boot.

Now my there something I am missing or will a Gameshark not work period for cheats with a chip and dvdr backups?? Can anyone tell me about the Action Reply as they sell that one too here??

Any help is appreciated...thanks!!!

There are so many GS & AR versions, which one are you talking about?

NO, the new ones V3's seem to have new protections on them I can get them to work with codes but it takes a lot of tries.

GS is no longer made by datel. Datel only makes those ARs
