    Just to update the orignal cd that work was a CDR not DVD......All of the dvd discs do not work chipped or original BUT CDR's are working the original and copied!!!!

    i find this in another thread on this forum

    CD/CD-R games boot but not DVD/DVD-R
    It is likely that one of the following causes applies:

    1. The W wire or the R may be incorrectly connected.
    2. The laser lens is dirty & should be cleaned with a cleaning disk or a cotton swab. The DVD is read at a higher frequency than a CD and results are more sensitive to a dirty lens.
    3. The laser needs re-calibrating because of wear and tear. This is a complex process separately described in an FAQ article.
    4. The laser needs replacement because of severe wear & tear.
    5. On v5/v6 models, the CLK wire needs attention as per a later article in this guide.

    Where is the w and r wire?

    The W and/or R wires refer to those installed with a modchip. As far as the others they sound about right, doesn't mention anything about the quality of the discs themselves though. But it sounds like that wouldn't be the case in your situation, Try cleaning it and see if that helps.

    check if the chip's connectors are solderd on properly still
    It could be a short circuit somewhere also

    You'd need to take out pretty much everything to get to the motherboard, which is where the chip will be. You will have to desolder it to get it out, too.

    I wouldn't suggest removing the entire chip though, usually problems with the chips are due to just one two little things negating the need to completely uninstall it. To disable the chip entirely just diconnect the power supply wire. You should check to make sure that there aren't any shorts on the board.
