Madden 08 loading problem


hi

the way you explained how it loads and you even bought a new cd... it boils down to the lens. try cleaning the lens with a dvd cleaner. be specific with the cleaner though because cd cleaners are different from dvd cleaners. try to use the dry cleaner and not the cleaner which uses liquids.

hope this helps.

Whats the point in installing a game to the hard drive ? what does it do exactly ? Many thanks L Prudden


Installing the game on the hard drive reduces the latency from the CD/DVD Rom reading to the processor.

If you install it to the hard drive, the game will play and load faster since it's already on the drive.

From the disc drive, it's got to go to the hard drive and to the memory and to the processor and back out to the user. That and hard drives generally run a lot faster than a DVD drive.

Taking lot of time to load and hang while loading.


Hi,
you should get a laser cd cleaning disk. usually has an audio track, or some have a small brush on the cd itself.
The laser adjustment-Calibration, can only be carried out with a multi-meter and a fine jewellers screwdriver.
would recommend a replacement dvd drive, bit more expense but worth it long term.

Regards mike @ compurepair.

The bios files i downloaded for pcsx29.4 now it stars i had rocatd the memory card but how to start the game


I would advise that you do not load them from DVD. I have had poor luck because of the driver in PCSX2 that runs the DVD rom drive. It's not fast emulation. If you know how to do so I would suggest you make an ISO of the game and place it on your computer then go into PCSX's configuration menu and go to CD/DVDROM and use the ISO loader . What this will do is it emulates a CD/DVDROM drive and will load any ISO you tell it to. I'm sure you can see the advantage of doing this. It will speed up the game play and emulation by a very large margine because it will read off your hard drive instead of your CD/DVDROM. 7600 RPM is much faster then any CD/DVDROM drive.

The next thing you NEED TO DO is to go to this page and make sure the game you are trying to play will even work with the PS2 emulator. Keep in mind nothing is 100% perfect and some games will not even load period or will have issues. SO check this list .::HERE::. either type your game name into the search engine or click the letter that your game starts with. ALWAYS check this list when you're trying new games. Some games have had known graphical errors or menu problems. So make sure you check this list first cuz it will help save you some frustration when trying to get games to load.

Cant play games or cd's or dvd's


Sounds as though the drive may be failing. If the unit spins and whirs a lot when loading disks, it will most likely need replacing
