    I've been fighting with this for a week now, and I'm just out of ideas, and almost money :p

    I'm trying to backup a game. Fat PS2. Game is Madden 08, if that matters. I have Swap Magic 3.6 and a slide tool.

    I'm going to go step by step here in obscene detail in the hopes that SOMEONE sees something I'm doing wrong.

    A) Copying games.
    DVD into burner (Sony DRU-530A). Open DVD Decrypter. Mode/ISO/Read. Dump to HD. Let it do its thing. Mode/ISO/Write. 2x speed.

    Looks like everything is burning correctly. I get no errors.

    B) Turn on PS2. Insert Swap Magic DVD. It loads, at the "Load Program" screen, insert swap tool. Slide little white post to the right, pull out disk. Replace swap magic with game backup. Slide tool the post back to the left. Hit x.

    Screen goes black, then it appears to try and load the backup.. but it then goes to the black/pink "please insert a playstation or playstation 2 format disc"

    C) Cry. Repeat on every media I can get my hands on (Sony -R, +R, TDK -R, all same) Throw lots of DVDs away. Buy more. Repeat.


    I'm just completely out of ideas. I've read something about refreshing the TOC, so I've also loaded swap magic, pressed eject, put in the original DVD, let it refresh TOC, and then used the swap tool, slide posts right open drive replace DVD, slide post to the left, click X... same pink/black screen.

    So please, please help. I'm just completely out of ideas.

    (I also posted this in general PS2 and I shouldnt have, sorry.)

    Did you get madden to burn. I have been having the same issue. I have a chip and use gameshark swap trick but screen just goes black. sounds like its gonna go but nothing happens. I have 5 coasters here. Tried decrypter, nero, and even tried to rebuild but nothing. My media is ty. So i know its excellent. The only games i have problems with are the madden ones.
