    Hey just installed a Magic 3.1 from modchip.ca on my PS2 V7.

    Originals of everything still play (PSX and PS2) but no backups do. I am using the clip for it. I have double and triple verified that they are all working using a dmm. I got rid of the L clip and soldered the wires right to the points. Any ideas on what might the problem be? SHould I try soldering right to the bios chip and getting rid of the clip? What wires do what?

    1. the magic 3.1 squirts the SCEx code through the SCEx wire - used for booting PS1 games (the S point)

    2. the magic 3.1 monitors whether you've pressed RESET once or twice through RESET (the RST point)

    3. It sends data to the disk controller through B through I clocked by A

    4. It patches the BIOS and manages the PS1 ***** rate scenario through M-V clocked by R

    5. It acts on the disk type(CD/DVD) supplied by W

    you should check these wires:

    W and A and R

    just look at every single point, no matter how sure you are. i had the same problem as you, and i made the tiniest mistake. now it works PERFECT
