    holts,
    Check to see which V4 you have - Gap or No Gap. This might be your problem. Because there are 2 different ways of installation depending on your V4. http://www.modchip.ca/install/ps2/magic3/magic3.php - Go here and and download and un-zip the 2 diagrams and see which is yours.

    Get a DVD-R backup from someone to try or try one of yours on someone elses modded PS2. If you don't know anyone just order one from the web. Then you can rule in or out your PS2 as being the problem.
