    i just use my swapmagic disks and fliptop....

    insert swapmagic disk - let it read for 15 secs or so then use the fliptop to switch with backup, then go to install and it reads the backup fine.

    you can use WINHIIP to copy files to the HD via your PC also...

    here is the process i have to go thru:

    -> get hdloader loaded up
    -> press the eject button and stick in your swap magic original dvd disk (if doing a DVD install)
    -> let it spin to 15 seconds to read the TOC
    in hdloader click on then install menu option, this stops the disk
    -> use your fliptop/slide tool/hammer/whatever to swap the SM DVD disk for the backup DVD
    -> continue as normal
    -> when installed (30 mins or so) go and play the game
    -> you may need to eject the backup as hdloader seems to keep it spinning otherwise?!?!

    hope that helps!

    load HD loader,

    highlight the game you want to change mode on

    press select

    you have the options for mode 1 - 3

    there are some websites that mention which modes to change... such as: http://www.ps2hd.com/
