Impossible to make good working psx backup with a 40125S

vbimport

#1

Hi,

I try to make psx backup with my 40125S (ZS0P firmware), using CloneCD 4.2 and LibCrypt Profile with read and write at 4x, but the backup is not perfect :a (video jumps, stop loading…) and sometime the cd refuse to boot…

I try with Verbatim (Super Azo datalife plus) media and black memorex.

My liteon is master on my secondary IDE, with creative DVD on slave. On the first IDE, I have 2 HDDs.

An update to 48124W could correct the probleme ?
Which media are you using for your PSX backups ?

Please, help me (nearly 25 cd lost !!!) :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

Of couse, i have a modship on my SCPH1001

PS : sorry for the english…

Are you sure its not a laser problem because the lasers on the psx can be very picky. does it work with other games.
burn at the lowest speed possible for psx although 4x is ok
I have burned many psx with the same writer at 8x no problems
try also turning your psx upsidedown (this is not ideal but it lets the laser nearer the disc)

I don’t thinck about a laser problem, cause I have other backup which work wery well. I even try to backup the backup, and i have the same problem :a
I try also at lower speed => same result.

what media are you using ?

Media dont really matter for me i have used bulkpaq, verbatim,maxwell,emtec,tdk and various other cheap brands dont know if this works for everybody but it does for me anyway…


#5

It’s really interresting. So, the problem may come from other hardware ?
Yesterday I try to backup a psx game with my old burner, and I have the same result (but it worked in the past) :confused:

I have p3 600EB on a ASUS CUBX (old 440BX) 256 Mo SDRAM and Geforce2 TI.

I will check on other forums !

Thancks for your help !

better media does in some cases make a difference but i have found it not to be a problem for me …not saying it wont make a difference for you as all lasers are not the same and some are picky more than others…


#7

Media does matter with psx

try TY or philips, Sony, every quality media will do.


#8

I used the cheapest cdr’s for some backups and all works fine on a PS/2 !
(i heard that Black coating is the best by the way for a ps/2)
So it’s your burner or it’s the azimuth stuff of your laser ==> probably the laser i think.

Hi, i doesn’t try for the moment, but can you tell me which program you use to backup game (and version). If you use cloneCD, could you cut/paste the profile used ?
Which firmware do you have ?

We are not talking here of ps2 backups, a ps2 has a far better
laser than an psx scph1001, that’s one of the first models.

you can try to put your PSX console in a 45 degree angle
you’ll see that it reads much better, I myself have a 1002 model
same problems, also the quality of media is important
