Default Magic 3.1 not loading backups

sponsored links

I just finished installing my Magic 3.1 into my v4 PS2. It turns on and boots up normally to the ps2 screen. All original games and dvds load fine.

However, backup PS2 won't load. It just goes to the red screen that says "Please insert a Playstation 2 Disc".

Also, I can't seem to find a straight forward answer to this. I have a harddrive that I want to install in there, but I'm not sure how to get it to recognize that. Do I need HDLoader, or should there be a different boot screen for the Magic 3.1 chip?

well im not a 100 % about how the magic chip works but you should be able to put in a disc and it should come up if it doesnt the chip wasnt installed correctly and yes if you want to put games on the hard drive you will need hdloader with a memory card exploit or a hdloader disc
