    I had a friend install the Magic 3 into my ps2 and the original ps1/ps2 games work and dvd movies work. But CD audio doesn't work and the ps1/ps2 cd-r backups don't work. With the ps1 backup it hangs and laser clicks (does not read) with the PS2 cd-r backup it gives the dreaded red screen. I had the PS2 modded with the USBmod before and these backups worked. I have not tried a DVD-R yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Did you press Reset 1x after the tray (with the copy in it) is closed ??

    Yes, I have booted the disks exactly the way the booting instructions say.

    If originals still work, that means the chip is working but a few points are screwed up. Look at the W, A, and S points. Those are the most common points that people seem to have trouble with.And they are also associated w/ your problems. Have your friend take a look at his install again, and make sure all those points are soldered correctly.

    Don't know what to say. The mod is not working for one of a many possible reasons.
    I think you should find another person to do your mod or get the information needed and look over his job.

    As I understand it Wiz the alternate point is used if you can't boot DVD's.
    This sounds like the install was just bad.
