    Hi
    I have a V7 PS2
    Running the no-solder mod-chip and swap magic 3.0 dvd.

    I have backed up every copy with dvd decrypter iso read.

    I have tried burning at 1x with DVD Decrypter ISO write, Alcohol 120%, Nero 6, Stomp Recordnow Max, and I am always having the same problem.

    I have also tried Memorex +R -R and Imation +R with these configurations.

    After my swap magic disc is done the insert disc screen appears. I hold down the button tray comes out I swap disc and it auto shuts itself. Then I hit x and the game starts loading.
    My Problem with this is that most of the time it won't load, it starts skipping and never turns blue or red.
    However, about once every 10-15 times it will boot correctly. (as soon as I put the disc in and hit x it has blue border and it starts right up as normal)

    What am I doing wrong? Please any help is appreciated.
    I don't understand why every 10-15 times it works but not everytime.

    I've also recently bought a lens cleaner and used it to clean the lens, so it shouldn't be that either.

    I have tried Memorex -r, +r, verbatim data life plus... and none have worked so far... i mean they will load sometimes.. but sometimes i have to keep trying over and over and restarting before i get a blue border which gets really frustrating if you try to load a game for 15-20 mins.

    Any advice is appreciated

    It sounds like there's something messed up with your no solder mod. The no solder mod has been known to blow fuses. Do you have any problems playing originals?

    playing originals is fine.. never have had a problem with originals. I can boot SwapMagic DVD 2.0 disc then boot original fine also...

    It is just booting up these backups that gives me a problem... verbatim data-life plus load faster than memorex -r but stil having lots of problems... what is the best suggestion?

    do you have access to a shop that would sell you a single ritek G04 dvd-r disc as these discs seem to work well in most ps2's other than that the only suggestion i have is to remove your case from your ps2 and use a cotton bud(q-tip) with some rubbing alcohol to clean your laser that way

    I am going to try to remove top and clean laser with Qtip and alchohol. If that doesn't work I'm gonna look for some Ritek media... How hard is it to clean the laser on a V7 PS2? ANyone had to do this before?
