    Just dug out my PSOne the other day, and since I never really got into Playstation games when I was younger, figured I would play through some of the staple titles.

    Currently using the double swap trick, which for the most part seems to work, but the music/videos seem to skip with most games (Final Doom, Einhander that I've tried so far).

    Wondering if there is a specific way I should be burning the discs to eliminate this, or if its an unavoidable side effect of the swap trick. Burning the discs on Sony media with ImgBurn @ 4x.

    And yes, I could be using emulators blah blah (and I was earlier). Would prefer to use the actual console, so any help is appreciated.

    It doesn't come from just the way you burn the CD but also what CD you start off using
    Cd's that have the most tracks 22+ have the best results
    Such as
    Tomb Raider 2 20+
    CV:SOTN A Lot

    Agreed reason i broke down and spent the $4 + $7 shipping to mod my psx (Minus solder,iron,PCB,wire and Standoffs) (about 25 total could buy a pre modded ps for that though)

    Don't recommend a PSX Being the first system you mod it has ultra small points to solder to barely bigger than the 30 AWG wire you should use (barely bigger than a push pin's diameter

    Nothing like playing on the real system
