Question Opm Demo Disk Won't Load Games With Magic 3?!

OPM DEMO DISK WON'T LOAD GAMES WITH MAGIC 3?!

I got a magic 3 chip and so far I was a very happy camper until I tried to load a demo from the Official Playstation Magazine. The disk will load OK, but then when a ga,e is selected it will go to the control config. screen, and then when the loading screen is supposed to come, I will have a BLACK screen, with the opening music going on. After that, I will need to reboot because no matter what I do, the balck screen won't go.

My backup and original of War Of The Monsters loads fine but now the demo won't load. That also happened with 2 spanking new demo discs that I opened today for the very first time. I thought that the demo DVD was bad, but then the old ones that worked fine before just won't load either.

LOOKS LIKE SOME KIND OF PROTECTION, I'm not sure.

HEEELP!!

Turn off the chip and see what happens.

Disabling the Magic 3.1
To turn the modchip off ttrn off your PS2 ( go to standby) and hold reset for at least 5 full seconds. Don't worry about turning it back on. It will turn back on the next time you power up the PS2. Use this method anytime you want to play the demos or psx games.
