Yeah, I posted a while back about my V2 PS2 with the Magic V modchip. I took it back to the people who installed it for me and they said that they'll take a look at it (I'm still waiting, it's been 5 days now). Anyway, the problem is that, even though cd-r games booted, DVD-R games did not. The technician told me that it was because my PS2's laser is getting old and thus it can't read the infomation on the DVD-Rs. I'm a bit skeptical because I've tried loading up some DVD-R movies on my PS2 and it booted up almost immediately. Even my original Xenosaga DVD booted up almost instantly. So I don't think my laser is THAT weak yet. Any help would be appreciated.
