Two part question actually. 1) Do DVD backups make more noise than the original PS2 games? Its something that I've been noticing with my PS2 with DMS 3 modchip. I'm not sure if thats normal or if maybe my laser is out of alignment or my burns aren't 100% (Using Recordnow max reading and writing at 1x). Original copies play just fine, and the copies play as well, just with the added noise. 2) Does excessive usage (ie: >6 hours a day, damn San Andreas) of a dms 3.0 modded PS2 cause any system instability? Or if anyone has had any experience with it frying your PS2?
