Try with your original disc and see if the problem persist
Playing Metroid 3 just fine. Moved on to the second area, where you get grapple. Move up to first door that requires grapple use, once I grapple the door..the game continues to APPEAR to play however it is actually locked up. Shooting doors still opens the bubble but the actual door doesn't open, also cannot scan.
I made sure I had the IOS that was listed for that game (and I do). Im using USB Loader with IOS 223 to play off USB HDD.
Any ideas? Stumped here I seem to have problems like this with several games.
Arc Rise Fantasia for instance locks up the same way during the opening cutscenes.
Don't have one !
Could HDD spindown cause this?
If HDD is spinning down game would still run in already loaded area but then possibly when I hit the Grapple door its trying to load but can't?
I doubt this is the issue because all my other games seem to work. Play NSMB all the time and play it for hours without a problem...so maybe either a bad ISO or something else..sucks because this is a great game!
