    Hi guys.
    I know this been asked a million times but
    I'm trying to burn DDR Party collection on a CD-RW disc and it won't work. I tried it many many many many times. but it wont work. it has a bin and cue file. and i follwed the instrctions on the first post on there and im sure i did everything right. but it still doesn't work. I;m using a swap magic 3.0 cd version. so can anyone help me? I don't know why it's not working.

    Yes, you can burn swap magic to cd, BUT you would then need to use your original swap magic to boot it since the ps2 will treat it like a burnt game.

    No, I cant guarantee it will work. A bunch of other things could go wrong, but its never going to work on a rw disc.
