PSX Disc problem

Postby stelios » Tue Apr 24, 2018 3:13 pm

Back in 1998 i wrote pirated game on any type of disc and then when a customer wanted a pirated game i took my 'backup, disc, copy it and give it to him.Today,in 2018 I found my backup' discs.When i put them on my ps1 they dont work at all!Its annoying!I have over 100 games and non of them are playable!Only some crap games that are on certain disc brands like 'PRODISC' and 'MITSUI'.Those work perfectly fine,but as I said they are crap!So I want to get these game and copy them on PRODISC discs and MITSUI discs .But its hard for me to find these brands on the internet.So,do you have any alternative brands that have no problem with ps1?

That does not make sense, if theres visible "rot" as round black circles, that is only thing that will make the copy bad. Its more likely you have problem with psx?

I have said before on here buy inkjet printable CD's because the top layer is not protected otherwise.

verbatim offers a good quality/price ratio. but first be sure the problem doesn't lie in your console, the laser might not work properly anymore after so many years.

I buy riData and always works great.

You see those silver parts shining through? Like on their logo? That is unprotected silicon wafer going to rot eventually.

buy a coated top cd, and it will last longer than your life

I have some "all silver" cd's and they are the first to rot.. but it took almost 20 frikkin years for that to happen! store them out of the sunlight, etc.

The lazer that my ps1 had was broken.So, I bought a brand new PSone lazer,It might be the PSone's lazer but it has no problem when playing original games.

^^Be VERY CAREFUL when doing this. Overturn can burn out the laser.

You need a MULTI-METER to do correctly and safely..

I'll have to try that. I have an original run Playstation with the RCA jacks on the back and it is not reading most discs, which is why I switched to a modded PSOne system a couple years ago.

he is correct,
1/8th is usually okay, but to be safe turn 1/16th... and then try

I had to turn most of my psx up around 1/16th to 1/8th to read burned games.

if it is in fact reading most original psx games fine, as you said, then it does not need to be replaced probably. But now you are saying it does not read most discs?

I think the earlier psx models are notorious for laser problems. May want to get a different model.

you must open your psx...
teh pot is on the ribbon, where it comes into the laser. Maybe can see some youtube videos.
mark at 12 o'clock with a sharpie, then turn it slightly to the right.
you can fashion a tool or use a slot screwdriver of just the right width.
keep the sharpie mark as a reference and don't turn more than 1/8th of a clockwise turn
