    Help! I bought v12 slim ps2. Using a slim tool. Tried Burning with Memorex DVD-R, TDK DVD+R, Verbatim DVD+R, Phillips DVD+R. Was trying to burn ratchet & Clank Up your arsenal. Ive made 10 coasters. Then I saw a post about CD Loader. I burned that to a CD. But swap magic 3.3 CD Version says "Not a valid PS2 disc". Has done that for all the discs. I can load regular games on ps2, but cannot load backups. Did I Install slim tool wrong? Everything looks ok following instructions. I am using DVD Decryptor. I have an NEC DVD-RW 16X Dual Layer. Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    DVD Decrypter will work fine, i use it for all my backups. Try using some Phillips 8X DVD-R discs. They work great in my Sony DRU-700A burner. Also get DVD Loader instead of CD Loader, My PS2 had the same problem with CD Loader, wouldn't read it. It's the same program but you burn it to a DVD. PM me with your email address if you can't find it, i have the zip file still on my hard drive at home last time i checked and can email it to you. I have not installed a slim tool so i can't help you there, but that could be the problem. If it is reseting itself when you open the top then you would get the "Invalid Disc" message every time.

    I will email it to you tonight.
    With Swap Magic 3.3 you shouldn't need it though but just so you have it. I haven't had to since i got the 3.3 version except when i want to load a backup game with cheat codes with the AR Max.
    Also just to make sure i understand, or you may have just mis-typed it.
    Are you trying to load PS2 DVD games with the swap magic CD version?
    You would use the swap magic DVD version to load 98% of all PS2 games.
