    are you shore you inserted the disc correctly as i have the same ps2 version and just installed my fliptop this week as well. All is fine with it. Double chick that you have installed it correctly and that when you insert the disc, make sure it spins freely. Then give it a go. Did you put the original in by opening the fliptop or the eject tray? Mine wont load from eject tray but only by fliptop. Try that as well.

    Yes the swap magic discs are supposed to have lines in it(prevents it from being copied)

    Try loosening the screws that you installed the fliptop with. If you put them in to tight it will do that and other strange things.

    my friend had the same problem thats all you have to do just when your tightening the screws make sure that they are just "flush" so that it won't put as much pressure on the tray as it is now.

    hmmmm.... not too sure what is wrong are you sure your putting the right swap magic disc in and not the one for the cd? also make sure that it can load corectly before you switch so that it can play the burnt game.

    it could be that ur lens got a bit dirty after takin it all off, happened 2 me b4. All i did was dip a cotton swap in ispropyl alcohol (rubbin alcohol) n damp it out a bit then wipe the lens with it.now no more disc read errors

    the lens is there wen u open the flip top cover, jus give it a wipe wit alcohol wit a swab, n see if that works. Also make sure u got a lil magnet on that white disc. Try putting a lil book on top of the flip top while its running
