    I just got a SwapMagic 3 disc set with the fliptp and i cant play any backups on it. I used DvdDecrypter to make my backup on TDK 8X DVD+R burned at 1X (actual speed that decrypter used was 3.3x). I have backed up Metal Gear Solid 3, Need For Speed Underground 1 and Devil May Cry 2 and none of them work.

    Here is my procedure after burning:

    1. Put in swap magic dvd disc
    2. Screen says Load and video mode
    3. Video mode is set to normal (default)
    4. I open the fliptop and put the backup in it.
    5. I press load and it reads but then displays:
    "Not a valid PS2 disc"

    What is the problem?

    Can anyone help? Has anyone backed up these games and played them with success with swapmagic 3 and the fliptop? Is it the media?

    Your media may be the problem
    Check here.
    http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

    I use Verbatim <MCC>---(Manufacturer)----IMPORTANT

    I have 30+ backups With DVD Decrypter burning at 2X
    (Make sure you shutdown any background applications when burning,you also may want to increase the system Pagefile as well).
    Other than that Your Firmware might not be updated.
    Also if your ps2 is above ver 4 use +r disks!
    Good Luck
