My v12 PS2 was working fine for about 2 years now, but when I decided to upgrade the firmware to 1.93 because I had trouble with DVD-DL. Anyway, when I tried to upgrade my firmware, it kept staying at Programming 0% for almost 5 minutes until I reseted my PS2. I tried loading again but getting the error - Please a Playstation or Playstation 2 format disc (or something like that). When I tried to go to recovery mode, it won't boot, only black screen. BTW, I'm booting from a cd and even tried creating a cd for my previous firmware, 1.38, but with no luck.
