    Do you have a slimline or original? Cause my cousin has a slim and uses SM. He used the magic keys and the metel piece closest to last was not down all the way and it kept scratching his discs in a perfect circle, like you said.

    I am all about the straw mod for the slim ps2. Instead of using the magic key tools, you can use a straw in the far back instead. This won't scratch your games like the metal key you talk about here.

    wow, I've never heard of original ps2's scratching discs like that. You should probably take it apart to get at the lens itself.

    That site is perfect. Just remember to try the easy stuff first. Like checking the quality of the disc and cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. Then go onto the cogwheel and POT tweak. Also if you are a beginner at this stuff watch tutorials on how to do this stuff. Youtube and some gaming sites will help.
