    I got the Duo2 Chip...
    All my DVD based games work but CD based ones like Mashed , Hitman 2 etc. won't get loaded.
    I think I saw a similar thread but couldn't find it anymore. Sorry.

    I have always had this problem on my v4 ps2.

    I had a magic 3 first and it didnt read most cd-r's only some(even some on same cd-r brand worked and some didnt) then i installed a duo2 and it still doesnt read most cd-r's even on good branded media, ps1 originals work and ps2 cd originals but cd-rs dont and never have.

    Im not bothered though because i dont use cd-r, i just burn to dvd-r's.

    Here are the boot modes from the duo website:

    PS2 games

    Method 1:
    -Press EJECT button to switch on the machine.
    -Insert PS2 game in tray.
    -Tap RESET button once, the machine would reboot and then load your game.

    Method 2:
    - Press EJECT button to switch on the machine.
    - Insert PS2 game in tray, the press EJECT button to close tray.
    - The disc will then take 2-5 seconds to be recognized and then boot.

    To boot another game when already playing a game.
    - Press EJECT button.
    - The current game would then pause and the tray would come out.
    - Change to another PS2 game disc and tap RESET button once.
    - The machine would reboot and then load your game.

    PSX games

    - Press EJECT button to switch on the machine.
    - Insert PSX game in tray, then press and hold RESET button to switch off machine.
    - Now hold the RESET button to start up your machine. Only release the RESET button once the Blue LED light of the Eject button lights up.

    DVD movies

    - Press EJECT button to switch on the machine.
    - Insert DVD movie in tray, then press and hold RESET button to switch off machine.
    - Now hold the RESET button to start up your machine. Only release the RESET button until the "blue clouds" comes up on the TV.

    Disable Mode

    - Hold the RESET button until the "blue clouds" comes up on the TV.
