OK I did everything I read about , Clean and rebend the PSU and also turn the laser screw. I for a second had nothing working lol , that scared me and then I turned it again and was back.


OK this is getting real strange.

My Burned ,

BIOHAZARD 3 LAST ESCAPE , DINO CRISIS The ISO Made By RDC , and my recently burned NFL QUARTERBACK CLUB 2000 Plays fine.
ALL The 2K Games do not boot or I get the SEGA LOGO COPYRIGHT Logo and goes no further, which they all work at one time.

SO it has to be

A. The CDI/ISO ,
B. THE CDR BRAND . also the discs are store right in front of a window , top of a dresser , The brand is also VERBATIM

or C. My Burner itself must not be too healthy anymore ? My brother has a brand spanking new gaming pc I will ask him to burn 2k games again for me.

Games that work and dont is the laser adjustment went thru this with a guy he could not believe it but it's the case.. adjust your laser to just boot and run sonic adventure 1 an 2 and it will boot all games

THAT IS WILD , I will try it. Official Release of it of course right ?

I will make note of that for sures , I am still going to try my change of computer idea too.

The headphone jack of my laptop is starting to be goofy , which is the same side of the CD Burner.

DID The PSU SUGGESTION and also the Laser ADJUST , No Dice at all. The sport games mysterious work 1 out of 10 times when I start up.

I think I found my verdict here ,

It has to be the CDR Brand I am using , The sport games have a mind of their own and now most of the time does not work , The Dino Crisis and BIOHAZARD 3 work 100% fine all the time.

I was using VERBATIM , this reddit thread claims they are the worst , I have to agree with it lol.

So I would like to know what BRAND is everyone here using ?

Just ordered a simple 10PACK of MAXWELL CDR Brand. $7 ,

Put it this way , If a burn a NON 2K Game and works 100% , then once again 2K games does not

I think this must mean the uploads of 2K Games must be Corrupted somehow ?

BOOM ! 1ST Maxwell brand disc I use and it works fine.

I also found SELF BOOTING Upload , So would maybe that's why ?
But how so , it was booting fine before and stopped.

It had to be the shit brand I was using I guess ?
