Okay, I took my CD-i apart today. Your timekeeper module should look like this one: You're right. Apparently mine doesn't use a M48T08-150PC1. It has two stacked IC sockets with a board and a smaller timekeeper chip in the middle and the CMOS plugged in on top. Not that it matters but I thought I'd ...

I have to disagree when you say that "everyone will have to do this" Oh, true. I guess it still depends if you consider saves a necessity and how bad the problem is affecting the system. I suppose what I mean is simply that the chip is bound to fail eventually. Right now my system doesn't seem to l...

Re: odd expirience...

So the save was titeled something like asf, saved on feburary 1st 2000. It took up 2.2%, but my player said 4% was used up.I turned it on just a minute after this, and everything worked perfectly. I also just schecked, and asf is gone. What could have happened here? It sounds to me like a garbage "...

some lightscribe bootleg zelda cd-i games. That's exactly what I was thinking; it's definitely a LightScribe disc. I can also believe that it looks suspiciously legit to those unfamiliar with the technology though. Here's an example of a LightScribe label: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/comm...

Hey nrg78, thanks for the pictures. I haven't tried this with my chip yet (still trying find a way to confirm the problem first), but ultimately, everyone will have to do this. Sorry about your loss. That does suck. I've installed modchips in a dozen PS2 systems and one time I fried the BIOS and hos...

That VCD's work and CD-i's do not is really weird I thought so as well. I tested 2 VCDs and 1 audio CD; all worked right away. I figured that eliminates a problem with the drive/laser. Are you sure there was nothing wrong with the CD-i's you tried? No way for me to be sure. I don't have another CD-...

I haven't used my CD-i in years and when I tried playing a game on it yesterday, it wouldn't work. I have a CDI 490 . When I insert a game, it acts as if no disc is in the drive or as if the disc is not recognized. I have tried 3 different games. It shows the "Philips Compact Disc Interactive" logo,...
