    you have to disable all of the internal switches on the pstwo before you can use sm so that the pstwo doesn't know you are changing discs.

    the easiest solution is the pstwo flip lid.

    go to http://www.ps2cover.com/pstwofliplid.shtml

    this does the job and is easy to install.

    then you should have no probs.

    ps DO NOT OPEN YOUR PS2 AND TAPE THE SENSORS IT WILL KILL YOUR PS2!!

    and also research stuff a bit before you jump in feet first!!

    Dude, the tape mod works perfectly fine. All it does it make the ps2 think the lid is always closed. It does not kill your system.

    then why is there so many posts on this forum complaining of burned out systems coz of the tape mod??

    why fiddle with tape when u can get a plug thats far easier to fit and can be removed easier??

    The tape mod isnt the one causing the problem (the burning of the lasers). Its just that the first few shipments of the psTWO were faulty and had the laser problem. Sony fixed that problem and now the psTWOs that are being sold right now dont have the laser burning problem
