Do not install a capacitor with a neokey on a v3 ntsc. Doesn't even matter if you were with supplied one (i found out the hard way).

Default Laser Cleaning

This is how I clean mine

Tools Needed:
Cotton Ball
Phillips Screwdriver
Small Phillips Screwdriver

1.Remove the screws under the PS2 there should be around 8.

2.Remove the case carefully, try not to pull out the ribbion cable.

3.The Ribbion cable might be taped on the top of the DVD Drive, carefully remove it from its place.

4.There 4 small screws on the Top of the DVD Drive, 2 on eash side, remove them.

5.Now, the laser should be exposed, and in your view, take your Q-tip and dip it in Alcohol.

6.Carefully wipe the lense with the wet end of the Q-tip, do not apply pressure.

7.The Alcohol will probably dry, but to be sure, use the Cotton Ball to carefully wipe it.

8.You can repeat steps 5-7 if needed.

9.Replace the drive cover, and all 4 screws.

10.Put the Ribbion cable back on the drive cover, and replace the PS2 case.

11.Screw the scews back in if you forgot were they go use this:

The 4 Long ones go to the far end of the PS2(the side were the power switch is). The short ones go on the other side

The 4 Rubber stopers go on the 4 corners of the each end.

The Regular scews covers go in the middle, and on the bottom-side of the Ps2.

Thats it, I tried to detail most of it,

Default Lucifer Mod

The Lucifer Mod is a No Solder mod based on the PNP No Solder mod.

This mod works on All versions on the PS2.(not sure about 3900x)

You can buy one from

This mod also can boot 630mb+ DVD Rips with an attachment of 3 wires, to make it a Licifer Full. The 3 Wires must be soldered.

Default DVD+RW

DVD+RW drives were made as an alternate to DVDRW.

They are faster, but not widely supported.

DVD+RW drives cost less than DVDRW, but the Media cost more.

Some People have had sucess with DVD+RW and DVD+R disks on there PS2.

There not a definite version that it works on, just certain lasers can read them. BeFore going out and buying a DVD+RW drive, ask someone in the BSTs forum to burn a Game on the DVD+RW or +R and sell it to you so you can be sure it works on your PS2.

HP 200i is the DVD+RW drive people are using for PS2.

If you want a DVDRW drive, just like handyguy said, Pioneer A03,A04/103,104 are the best ones to get as they work for PS2 games.

Default Ace Key

The Ace Key one wire mod will act like a neo key and will play dvd rips over the toc size of the AR/GS2 ie 72mins using a AR/Gs2 to boot them but im sorry to say that this feature will only work on Pal Ps2's.It also acts like a PnP key (No solder r mod) and will boot DVDr with version 2.01 and 2.02 AR2 cd's ( im sorry i dont know which gs versions will boot DVDr as i dont have any of these) on a Pal or Ntsc Ps2.
They also will boot Ps1 games direct on a Pal Ps2 and have a nice and slow eject action.
So this mod looks just like the no solder mod chips and conects to the eject and reset ribbon cables in just the same way but you will need to solder one wire to the Ps2 mother board this will boot cd based games which have a toc larger than 72 mins on a pal Ps2.If you dont solder the wire it will act just as the no solder chip do.
Hope this helps

9. Press eject once more to close the drawer, then wait 10 seconds
10. Press X, then highlight ARMORED CORE 2 & press start
11. The screen should now say With Code/Without Code. Highlight With Code and press X
12. Press X again.
13. Hold down eject until the tray pops out, then swap the DVD with your DVD-R, and let the tray close on its own.
14. Press O to go back to main menu

(KEVE2999, try asking in the ps2 forum itself, or just read it or search it for 'pioneer' there should be lots of answers to your question)
