    I just finished modding my 5501 ps1 with the Multi Mode 3 chip. I reassembled the ps1 back to what it was before. I put in a legit game,Metal Gear Solid, into my ps1. Then it show'd "Please Insert Playstation CD-ROM". How do I fix this?

    You did something wrong. Retrace your steps, some pics would help

    It turns out I overheated my modchip lol. I used 45 watts instead of 15 watts causing a heating to both the modchip as well as the board. So I have a new psx arriving in the mail this week as well as a new modchip.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    wouldn't be nicer\easier to have a psx with the modchip already installed?

    They're pretty cheap even with the modchip installed already. I managed to get one on Craigslist with a modchip already installed and two controllers for $15.

    It came with an old modchip, though since some games won't play. Spyro: Year of the Dragon is the only one I've had this issue with.

    Does the mm3 have this problem?

    I think Spyro is an anti-modchip game

    There's no way around it besides burning a patched image? Mm3 is a stealth modchip, no?
