    Did you boot your backup using the larger TOC method? You can't just boot dvd-r backups directly from the AR2 cause it's a cd. U have to put in a high TOC dvd original afte the AR2 loads and then swap that with your backup. If I were U I would just use the Swap Magic.

    letting us know which game it was would also help a lot.

    The game is "XIII".
    When you're booting form a toc, do you swap the disc immediately after you double tap "x"?

    Or when do you do the swap?

    When U swap the backup with Ur DVD original use the swipe card.

    1. Have AR/GS dongle in a memory card slot
    2. Power on your PS2
    3. Insert AR/GS disc, close tray
    4. Power off your PS2, wait a few seconds
    5. Press and Hold Reset button to load AR/GS
    6. At the AR2/GS2 menu, press EJECT while still holding Reset
    7. Swap AR/GS disc for an Original-TOC-DVD* and wait 10 seconds
    8. Select "AR/GS Codes"
    9. Highlight "Add new code" and press X to get to the next screen
    10. Press X three times. You will see "Updating code list please wait" each time)
    11. Press "Start" on controller
    12. Select "Without codes", press X
    13. Then Press X again, and immediately release the Reset button, you will see "Updating code list please wait"
    14. The PS2 tray will eject allowing you to swap Original-TOC-DVD* for DVD backup and then close on its own
    15. Screen will change and game will now boot

    * Note - "Original-TOC-DVD" is an original DVD that is a larger file size than the backup

    * Note – For a shortcut make a few “Add new codes”, or use any title you know you don’t need (you can always reset the dongle) and after step 8 just highlight one of the “newly” added codes or unnecessary ones and press square to delete it, then proceed on with step 11

    *Important* You have to have the correct version of AR/GS in order to boot backups
