    Hi, i'm new to this site and I was wondering if you guys could help me. Well this is the case, I borke my v5 ps2 by accident so now couple days ago I got a V9 ps2. I also bought swap magic at the same time as I bought my V9. Well, booting dvd games works fine. Oh and by the way I use the knife method to boot my games. anyway booting the dvd games works fine..... but then I borrowed a old cd game from my friend and burnt it. The game was SSX..... well i decided to try it out and then I put the swap magic cd disc in..... the 3.0 one and it gives me the put it a ps1 or ps2 format disc screen.... I cleaned it and the same thing happends... I decided to try to boot it from a gameshark v2 cd instead and then the same thing happend. I thought maybe my ps2 stopped reading cd games or boot disks but i popped in a real game and it worked and i popped in a swap magic 2.0 dvd and that worked...... so I didn't know what was wrong.. I tried cleaning both multiple times and still doesn't work... I also put both in my comp and for some reason they both took a long time to load in my cd burner and loaded faster in my dvd burner.... Everything works fine excpet these 2 boot disks..... any help would be appreciated :)

    dont think the early versions that you can use for swaping work as sony has done something to the code that the ps2 uses
