    Hi guys! I have a modded PS2 SLIM (MAtrix Infinity mod chip, no it isn't fake either...), I seem to be having problems playing DVD games. A while ago everything was working perfectly find and it had been for weeks, now every time I insert a copy of a PS2 game the Matrix v1.68 logo comes up, then the PS2 blue screens comes up with that weird music , then the screen is all black and after about 15 seconds, it says "Unable to read disc" on the Top center of the screen...

    NO game works at all. I tried updating the modchip with a CD, and it WORKED. What could be wrong? Please help...

    Oh and before that all happened, I accidentally "Disabled" the chip. I haven't touched the config menu either, until now that is.

    Im starting to think that my PS2 is identifying my back-up games as a "DVD Video" disc (thats what it says on the browser screen). What do I do??!?!???

    Ok, I couldn't record the problem on video, but I did manage to get some pictures off my cellphone :D Hopefully those who are willing to help can understand the problem better than me...

    Ok. here is the Config menu:

    Now. Here's where it all starts...

    OK. Everything is off, turned the TV on and here is the disc that ALWAYS worked

    [​IMG]

    Yes... that is a backup copy and yes it's inside the PS2 v12...

    Now when I close the fliptop and turn the thing on, everything goes fine; Matrix logo comes, then that sony blue screen comes then the screen is all black for a while then we finally we reach...

    [​IMG] UNABLE TO READ DISC... (mind my son taking the picture ;D)

    Now... when I eject the disc, it goes back to the browser menu... and when I close the lid on the PS2, here's what comes...

    [​IMG]

    Voila! It ACTUALLY detects a disc of some sort...

    But... look at the top right corner of the screen...

    [​IMG]

    See? Shouldn't it be saying "Game" or something of that sort?

    OK. When I DO click the DVD icon on the browser, guess what?

    [​IMG]

    SAME THING. I do not know what is going on... Someone please help us.

    Maybe your laser has worn down incredibly bad, hence, your PS2 cannot load the game properly. Although really, I bet someone has a better idea than me since I'm entirely speculating the cause of this problem based on the type of media you have backed up your Naruto game on. And besides, I forget, but there's always the possibility the data might have just rubbed off or gone bad since if you use poor media, they really aren't suppose to be used for archives. More like cheap video or data distributions you can afford to lose.
