    smcd will boot dvd backups using a high toc disk such as devil may cry or vice city, but if the game also needs cdloader I don't think it will work.

    you could try the mem card exploit cogswap loader, it will load anything.

    ok, have you tried cleaning your laser lense?, I have trouble getting my ps2 to read smdvd sometimes and cleaning the lense often works. also you could try cleaning the smdvd disk using some car cutting paste (metalic paint paste, it's less abrasive) working out from the centre of the disk, it will remove heavier scratches but leave fine scratches on the disk, but the ps2 will still read the disk

    Why don't you just use the swap magic cd and cdloader? This procedure should get your dvd backups working:
    1. Boot swap magic cd
    2. swap the swap magic cd with the cdloader using the fliptop and press x
    3. Once the cdloader has loaded press eject and insert a high toc original such as Devil May Cry. Press eject to close.
    4. Once the screen says "PS2 DVD" in the lower left hand corner press x.
    5. When the screen says "insert a dvdr by ea method" swap the high toc original with your dvd-r backup by using the fliptop and press x.
    6. Your dvd-r backup will now load!

    The original of the backup you are trying to play will work as a high toc original because it has the same toc as the backup.
