I just got a new ps2 and I made a backup of my Jak 2 and when I put it into my ps2(slim version) it said,"Insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk". so does anyone know how to make it work without mod-chip or swap magic?

you cant do swap magic with the slim version ps2! it doesnt have the automatic disc tray thus...its not possible! there is a way and all you have to do is tape something down, i think. search the forums for it.

Questions...without them, who could be smart, we'd all know everything!

Swap Disk/Slide card (V2.0 and V3.0 disk's)
V7 PS2
Toshiba Northgate 2003 model
Burning program - DVD Decryptor
Teon DVD+R disk's (haven't failed yet!)

Recently, there is a brand new product called "Magic Switch" available in the market. (News from Linker4u.com). By the Magic Switch, we can use Swap Magic 3.3 on the latest PS2 console SCPH-7000X.

You're completely wrong Rusty. Here's what you need to get the new slimline v12s to work with backups.

1.) Swap Magic with ps2lid (http://www.ps2lid.com) or magic tool.
2.) One of the newer chips with added fixes.

Dig around the forums, and you'll find info on it.
I can personally attest for the ps2lid/SM combo. I've been using it on my v12 for close to a week now, and my backups work fine.

Hey i have a version 4 ps2 and i use Swap Magic it says its Sawp Magic DVD version 2.0 USA Version just to get the actualy name. But my question is for the people out there that might have the same problem as me. Lots of games i boot up with the swap magic play very slow on my ps2, like the cut cenes skip and stop and freeze and the loading times are horrific and make me very angry at times. Is there a way to make this go faster? like to tweak the laser to make it go faster or something like that? if there is i would be willing to do wahtever it takes from having to buy a new ps2 and spending liek 300 dollars in expense. I am very good and taking these ps2's apart and fixing them but i dont know how to make it go faster. SO if there is someone out there that knows how to fix this please reply. Thanks

I got it!! i am able to play backups now...but why do you have to burn at the slowest speed? i burned at max...will that affect my game? also, can games only be burned on dvd-r or would dvd+r work too? thanks.

i'm wondering what program you use to burn double layered dvd's on?

The faster the burn speed is set to the higher the probability that the disc will have errors on it when completed.

yes it is possible to burn to +rs or -rs your burner just has to support them.

Some of the older models can only read -r (v1-3 i believe, but don't shoot me if I'm off a little on that). The newer models can read both +/-. Mine is a version 4 and it reads both. Just look around and find a media that works and stick with it

I PITY DA FOOL!

You can't boot backups without an original Swap Magic boot disc -or- the appropiate mod chip. A copy of Swap Magic won't do either, if you search bittorrent or some of the P2P sites you may find a Swap Magic ISO images, unfortunately they are useless since the PS2 demands an original copy.

Don't be a cheap bastard, you can buy Swap Magic 3.3 for around $20. There are a good number of US based on-line retailers who carry it and SONY has done nothing to stop them. One of them is www.estarland.com, I highly recommend them, they are based Florida, I used regular shipping and it cost only a few bucks, I had the disc within four days.

www.estarland.com also carries replacement tops and a good selection of import games. They don't carry the Magic Switch tool, but that can be had on EBay. I got mine for about $3.00. Magic Switch is just three very tiny pieces of plastic, it works well but you have to play with the top open.

I've got a Version 1 PS2 and +Rs work fine. I've got about 50 backups, and they're all +Rs.

no and no to boot up a burned game you need an original swap magic.

Just me or does using this swap magic make your game run EXTREMELY EXTREMELY slow? i had to wait 10minutes for GTA:San Andreas to start up and like 5minutes between every round in Tekken 5. The wait is just ridiculous.
