    I've been having some trouble getting my backup of midnight club 2 to boot. I have a magic 3.1 and when the ps2 starts to boot the game it flashes the "playstation 2" logo thing as usual, fades to black as usual, but never goes anywhere. It just stays black. Any thoughts?

    sounds like the media or burn speed guys. dont forget how some games are just picky about the media you burn it too. i got some games that just wont work on a certain madia even though lots of others have. i got it working on the fliptop with swap magic. 1x, nero, princo.

    Hi .. I am having the same problem with Midnight Club 2. After the "Playstation 2" screen, it just stays black. I tried burning an exact copy at 2x, and I tried making an image onto my hardrive and then buring it to a DVD at 1x. Still the same black screen. I have had no other problems except for Spinter Cell. Any other clues??? I have Magic 4.1 from Nitsur.com -- thank you, Brian

    hi .. the game always goes to the black screen right after the "playstation 2" appears at the very beginning of loading the game, and it just stays black - like it is trying to load but with no luck.

    The best DVD brands in my opinion are fujifilm, memorex, and verbatim. Also it might not just be the type of DVD brands you are burning to. It could also be the quality of your DVD burner that's causing problems.

    No, u don't have to burn it to a dvd-r. I burned midnight club 2 to a imation dvd+r and it worked great. I burned it using nero at 2.4x with an hp dvd 200i.

    The DVD brand only has to be dvd-r if you have a version 1-3 ps2. If you have a version 4-8 it will read +r or -r.
