    My old PS2 Phat died a month ago. My brother gave me his PS2 Slim(Console SCPH-70012, Driver 1.11). But when I tried to play Castlevania Symphony of the Night, Greatest Hits Edition something weird happens. When I put it in the console the disc will load, the Playstation screen with display, play the jingle and then stay there forever, never loading the game itself. When I go to browser it shows a Playstion disc and I can either press X to enter the game (and I get the above mentioned frozen screen) or press triangle to play it as a CD (a Hidden track). My PS2 plays the hidden audio track but it won't boot the game. Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much!

    It's a PSOne game.

    But yeah, your laser may not be picking up CDs correctly. Try another PSOne or PS2 CD game and see if that works.

    I think there are 2 modes to load PSX games on a PS2.
    Go to the PS2 settings and change them(to FAST)

    It seems there is not fix for that.
    The only thing is to try using Texture Smoothing/Fast Loading but that didn't help.
