    the magic V is gonna come out on aug.19 and it is only $5 more than magic 3.1.
    yes it will play cd based games if you install it wrong depending on which point you solder it on.

    I know what u mean m8.
    I have a Magic 3 chip and everything works except DVD's. It used to be CDR's too, but I found a way to boot them.
    Leave the game (CDR) in the disc tray (turned off) and then wait for 10 seconds, turn on the PS2 (from the back) and then press RESET.
    It should then Boot. So..

    Put in CDR
    Close Tray
    Hold RESET, UNTILL OFF
    TURN OFF FROM BACK
    10 SECONDS
    TURN ON FROM BACK
    RESET
    BOOT

    Good Luck!

    I know this happens a lot on older model playstations. Sometimes installing a mod chip pushes the lasers too hard, and you need to get it replaced, first try cleaning the laser though, I can't remember the site, but there is a site out there that will show you how.
