    Hi Guys:

    I need some help. A few days ago I bought the Swap Magic 2.0 set /w flip-top and the DVD disc works perfectly, but my CD disc will not boot up at all. I get the PS2 red screen saying to insert a Playstation disc. Then today, I purchased the Action Replay MAX and that CD will not boot up either and gives me PS2 red screen. When I put in a regular PS2 CD it works fine. All the DVD discs, including Swap Magic 2.0 DVD works perfectly.

    My conclusion that I've come to is that the new Playstation 2's models (Version 9 - 50001) will NOT play third party, non-licensed CD's.

    Does anyone know anything about this and is there any way that I can use these devices on my V9 PS2?

    Thanks.

    For anyone interested in this, I contacted Datel today about the Action Replay MAX. Apparently the discs you buy at the store will not work in version 9+. If you have a problem with the disc, you need to call them and they will send you an updated disc that will work in V9+.

    Still no news found about the Swap Magic 2.0 CD, but I'm assuming it's the same thing. It's not burnt/coded correctly to play in V9+ because of Sony changing the code yet again, etc.
