    Dear forum readers,

    I received my swap set (CD + slidecard) today, and
    it's working quite well. Except for one game, it's
    called:

    (japanese) boku no natsu yasumi 2 (DVD, original import)

    I use Euro DVD 2.0 to boot this game. When booting
    it gives the blue colour sign and after that,
    it goes to the PS2 memory card screen and ends
    with the red ps2 screen "please insert a ps2 disc"

    All the other (japanese) games work fine. Sometimes
    I have trouble reading the CD VERSION (3.0) of my swap
    disc, but so far so good. I bought my PAL PS2 4 years
    ago.

    Why can't I boot this game? I read somewhere on
    this forum that DVD-9s can't be booted. Is my
    game a DVD-9 type, how can i find this out? I also
    read something about adjusting your laser-lens
    (a white switch somewhere) will this work for me?
    Thanks for your help.

    I've found the solution! (thanks to devilhunt)

    1. swap CD Loader with SM CD (3.0)
    2. insert SM DVD and swap it with this japanese game.

    The reason why i use CDLoader, is because I can't
    burn DVDs, or else i would have used DVDloader.
    Well, finally i can play it!
