Definitely a mod chip. The discs need to be burnt to CD-R as an iso image written at a slow speed. I usually use x4.

Try it again.

...and/or check for any loose wires on the pins if the chip inside the tape.

Havent seen one of those in years! Theyre ancient, probably done around the time of the release of the slim. They were never great compatibility wise and were prone to failing over time.

Try burn a few different games and if you dont get anything its probably toast.

If you want a new modchip, install an MM3. Can be got for a few euro on ebay and are straight enough to install.

That soldering job looks poor enough.
I'd remove the chip and check it out with a retail game to make sure the laser isnt dead.

After that I'd resolder the chip in and see how it goes.
Wouldn't be surprised if the soldering job was causing issues
