Today I played a backup copy of FFX for the first time and it worked well until one of the cutscenes near the beginning of the game, at which it crashed (screen froze, music stuck). Later, I had problems booting up some of my other backups as well. I would have to unplug the ps2 from the power cable and restart the ps2 each time I wanted to insert a different backup game. Otherwise, it wouldn't recognize the disc. I've never had these problems until today, so is my ps2 starting to wear out? I have an internally modded ps2, btw. I have no idea what kind of modchip is inside, as I bought it about 2 years ago from taiwan. The store owner asked me if I wanted to play backup games when I bought it and I said yes, so they modded it on the spot for free.
