    Ok so im stuck with only the cd based swap magic disk(Somehow my dvd swap magic cracked) So is there any way i can boot up my dvd backups?? Is there a cogswap like program that gives you the choice of booting up cd or dvd? Please help. I currently have no way of playing my custom guitar hero.

    If you have a USB flash drive you can boot CogSwapLoader.

    Get the CogSwapLoader.elf

    In the root of the flash drive make a folder, "SWAPMAGIC".

    Rename CogSwapLoader.Elf to SWAPMAGIC.elf.

    If the flash drive is in the PS2 when swap magic starts then cogswap will load.

    Ok i tried this and it didn't work. Im using my psp as the flash drive.

    I made a folder called swapmagic in the root of the memory stick. I downloaded cogswaploader.elf and renamed it swapmagic.elf. I hook up my psp to the ps2 and go to usb connection and then turn on the ps2 with the swap magic cd in. Swap magic loads up and just sits there. I press load program and then it just reboots swap magic. Am i doing anything wrong?

    O the version i have is 3.3 Does this version not support elf loading?

    If not i guess i have to burn a copy of the 3.8 version onto a cd and boot that from 3.3 And then load up the cogswap elf from the usb(Dammit why did my harddrive have to break)

    I don't think SM 3.3 supports ELF loading. Here what you can do:
    Burn CDLoader to a disc and use it to load DVDs.
