    I'm having a lot of trouble getting my Crystal Chip to work completely...and it seems my symptoms are different than everyone elses.

    1) "Disc Check" on the firmware CD, says "PS1 Disc Authentication Failed. Please check SX Wire." - I opened up the playstation and resoldered it twice, with the same message appearing both times.

    2) Using BootManager I can boot original ps2 games but I cannot boot any backup games. It hangs at the "Please Wait" screen.

    3) Without using BootManager, I can boot up original games as well as a StreetFighter backup disc. All other backup discs hang at a black screen.

    If someone can point me in the right direction and tell me where the problem might be, It'd help a lot.

    Misc. Information:
    Crystal Chip version 1.1
    The initial installation LED Test passes.
    Firmware version cracked 34. BM v2.1.6
    I'm burning games with DVD Decryptor at 2.4X speed onto a Memorex Dual Layer Disc

    best place to start would be the official website of Crystal Chip. They may have a help link to email them or some even have forums dedicated to helping.
