Help
I have been disc swapping recently.
Now sometimes I wanna play my official copy of my fave ps1 game, it says "please insert playstation CD ROM" and I have to reset it til it goes to the game. (Sometimes it gets stuck on the PlayStation1 logo) Help please. And the CD player keeps stuttering tracks on my CDs (my CDs are in sexy condition) please help.

Flip the console upside down and see if it still stutters. If it doesn't, the drive rails are worn down. More accurately, the tops of the drive rails are worn, which is why it may run better when resting on the underside instead.

If there's no difference then you may need to adjust the CD lens potentiometer, also known as a "pot tweak".

Try turning on Diagnosis mode by pressing Triangle on the BIOS and again after highlighting "Console" on the Version Information menu. Either way, there's something wrong with your DVD drive. If Diagnosis mode works, it's a temporary fix until you can replace the DVD drive.

EDIT: Wait. My bad. I thought you were talking about a PS2 and not a PS1. In that case the above instructions won't work. Follow ChiefReginod's instructions.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Get the one that says "R4i-SDHC, r4isdhc.com cards 2014+, R4i SDHC Upgrade Revolution, R4DSiXL3D, R4i Advance, R4-IIIi, R4 SDHC Revolution, R4(i) Pocket, R4i Gold (v1.4.1) (3DS) & R4xDS"
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Then inside the folder, copy "R4.dat" and "TTMenu.dat" to the root of the SD card. Replace the files when asked.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    If the "Autoboot" folder is on the card, do remove it, as it is not needed once you copy the necessary autoboot files.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, im talking about the flashcart loader not the autoboot
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, You don't need the flashcart loader, you just need the autoboot and that's it.
