    Sounds like the video format of the game is incompatible.

    If you get games from a different region, chances are you won't be able to play it, straight from the box. This incompatibility is the result of the different countries adopting different TV broadcast systems. There are two main types of format for consoles and games. These are PAL and NTSC format. PAL format refers to consoles and games compatible in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and parts of Europe. NTSC format refers to consoles and games compatible in the Japan, USA, Canada, and other countries in North America. NTSC runs on 525 lines/frame and with a refresh rate of 60Hz, while PAL runs on 625 lines/frame (larger screen height) at 50Hz.

    If you use Swap Magic, you can try forcing the video mode, by selecting the desired video mode. Also, you can try patching the game manually. Newer modchips should be able to convert the signal automatically.

    However I can be wrong about this, as schweet has stated, you should provide more information so we can better answer your question(s), ie. your method to play back-ups, what region PS2 you have, etc.

    would have to agree with the above. 95% of the time the problem you have is due to the game being from another region. Try to set the video mode on Swap Magic (try both PAL & NTSC) or if you have a chip enter into the settings and set the force mode. If your console is NTSC you would set it to force NTSC, forcing all games into that format.
