    Hi,

    I've got a small problem, any help would be much appreciated.

    I can use the swapmagic DVD with no problems and load DVD backups.

    The swapmagic CD needs a few tries (10, 20) to boot (is that normal?). Once it does boot, I can start the CD Loader, press X, choose 5V3 NO PN, then when I try and swap for the swapmagic DVD, I get an "error reading disk". I can't get it to switch from "media: PS2 CD" to DVD. I just can't get the swapmagic DVD to load after the CD loader has started.

    V7 PS2, PAL. swapmagic CD is 3.0, DVD is 2.0, CD Loader is V7.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Try using a high TOC original game to refresh TOC instead of SM dvd.

    Thanks for your reply, I'm new to this, so if I put an original game like 007 Nightfire, instead of DVD SM, it should work?
    Or what games are high TOC?
    Thanks.

    Vice city and Devil may cry are good toc discs. You need to use a disc bigger than the backup.
    PT is under 2GB so if 007 is over 2GB you can use it.
