    Hi,
    I just installed a flip top cover on my ps2 yesterday and when I tried it out this morning it plays the games fine but then after a little while the dvd starts making funny noises like it fell off the spindle. I replaced the white thing on the top with the old white thing because the new one didn't have a magnet in it. I thought the one with the magnet would hold it in place better but it still falls off. What should I do? How do I fix it?

    I figured it out. I'm posting the answer incase someone else has this problem.

    After trying it again this morning I noticed the game falls off the spindle at the same point in the game each time, and I don't have this problem with other games. So then I thought maybe it was the copy I made, but, since I am using Taiyo Yuden dvd-rs and burning at a slow speed I wondered if maybe it was the original game, not the copy that was the problem.

    I put in the original game and it too fell off the spindle at the same point in the game. So I looked at it in the light and it was full of scratches. One big one stood out. Doh! The reason I made the backup in the first place is because my games get all scratched up.

    Moral of the story: Clean and repair your original game before making a backup copy of it. My software made a perfect copy, including scratches and all. Lol.

    What happens is the laser can't read the part where the scratch is and moves up and down to maybe get a better look and knocks the game off the spindle. The copy doesn't have data where the scratch was so the same thing happens. :p Sheese, noobies. Heh.
