Since your PS2 can't play discs, it can't play Swap Magic, and since it can't play Swap Magic, you're pretty much screwed. (Swap Magic allows you to boot homebrew software - in this case, USBAdvance - and if you can't load Swap Magic, you can't do a lot of the stuff you want.)

Why did you buy a PS2 if it couldn't read discs? Seems like a really bad investment to me. You can probably buy replacement parts for it online if you really want.

- Write this software using DVD Decrypter onto a blank CD-R.
- Insert the disc into the playstation 2.
- You should have a USB Pen drive ready, of capacity minimum 4 GB.
- Alongwith the USB Advance, you will get a software for your PC to convert the downloaded games into the games playable through USB.
- Open the software, browse for a game file, and convert it.
- Now insert the pen drive into your computer and copy the converted game files into the pen drive.
- Remove the pen drive from computer and insert it in your PS2.
- Boot your PS2 with the USB ADvance CD in it and now select the game and press the 'X' button to play!
