I'm think I'm going to need a new Laser Lens or DVD-Drive
for my PS2.
After I got the Magic 3 chip a few days ago (after having the PS2 for 2 years,
but barely playing it because I only had 2 crappy games to play) back-ups seemed to work fine, with a "Cannot read DVD Disc" error only very occasionally which could usually be fixed after opening and closing the DVD Drive. I use TDK and Proformance DVD-Rs
After playing an original PAL (The standard here), rental version of GoldenEye, which
worked fine, the PS2 seems to have died, no game can be
read, whether original or backup. This was kind of progressive, GTA: SA Got to the loading screen before the drive started making a weird noise which is pretty tell-tale that the DVD Can't be read before giving a CAn't Read DVD Error, now I'm always stuck on the PS2 Browser.
I've tried using a DVD lens cleaner which isn't read
properly either, it gets to the menu, then the DVD Drive
begins to make the "ehh ehh ehh" noise that it does with
games before I get the "Disc Cannot Be Read Error"
