    Can someone help me on installing the Magic3 mod. I've look at all 7 versions of the PS2 motherboards diagrams that are posted on several mod web sites but none of them match mine.

    I have a 30001 model which should be version 1 but the one I have is closest to version 3 except for the ground and 5volts and one or two differences.

    Has anyone else had this same problem ?

    I have the same version as you, mine is scph-30001 and it doesn't match at all. I sent an email with a picture of my board to modchip.com and we will see what they say. If there response is like there shipping, this thing won't be working until next year.

    I know there are different types of Magic 2's for different PS2 models but you have the Magic 3 that is supposed to be universal. I would confirm the type of Magic 3 from the place you purchased from just in case or try here for a diagram http://www.playstationmodchip.com/install.html Dexter

    nugz77 thanks for your posting it's good to know i'm not the only one with this issue. Please let me know what modchip.com say.

    Dextrslab all the mod web sites seem to have the same diagrams of the motherboards and none of them match mine.

    so I looked around at some other diagrams of chips and I found one that matches.

    Check out the Apple Mod diagram V3.

    Can anyone recommend this chip or is it a dud ?

    nugz77 your photo of you motherboard matches mine.

    I'm just looking at the options, I to want to use the Magic 3 chip and have purchased one but if there is no luck getting the right Diagram of fitting it to my motherboard I will look at a chip that does and I expect the company I bought it from to exchange it if it's not been used.

    So I think I found the matching motherboard for V3 006

    Try Magic 3 at ( NEOASIC.COM ) they are the manufactures of the chip a have a diagram that is a little fuzzy but I'm pritty sure it's the right one !
