Default magic 3.1 suddenly fails to boot dvd-r, but cd-r is fine

sponsored links

 
i have a magic 3.1 installed on a v7 for about 3 weeks.
suddenly dvd originals and backups stops booting.
cd-r boots fine however. when dvd-r boots, it would
display the Playstation 2 logo on a black screen, but then
jumps to the browser. and sometimes i would get the red
screen of death. i've tried all of my dvd-r backups with
different brands and they all failed to boot. is there a
mode that i had accidentally put the magic 3.1 in?

try the alternative W point for the chip. Refer to www.china-magic.com/magic3/diagrams/W_ALTERNATIVE.jpg link for diagram.

the ps2 is only 4 weeks old.
it boots gameshark for ps2 without a problem
and occassionally one brand of dvd-r. it has
problem booting princo white top brand as well
as ritek brand. again cd-r has no problem.
when it tries to boot dvd-r, it sounds like the disc
is spinning slower than usual. and dvd skipping
would occur if it does load.
so i'm wondering if the modchip thinks that dvd
media is cd-r and stuck in that mode.

2 questions


1. As padawan said How does the PS2 do with booting dvd originals?

2. Did you check your wiring esp. check the cd\dvd controller points and bios points.
