I got the 3 discs rip for xenosaga episode 1, and burned it onto the disc. It booted up properly, when when I select "new game", it just got into a black screen with a radar on the bottom right corner of the screen. I can go into character menu, but theres no characters. I waited for about 6 minutes and the screen is still black. I did some searching and found quite a few with the same problem. I found someone saying enabling mode 2 of ide hdd wil lwork, but my ps2 is slim and thus dont have ide hdd. What can I do to make it work? someone please help me. thanks in advance ps. I got a one disc version of xenosaga I and it yields the same result, booted up properly, but its black with with game radar when select new game..
