    Well my problem is i can't get my swap magic to boot my CD snes station. I have swap v. 3.6. The dvd snes station that i actually got to boot up runs rlly slow and the sound is way off. I know the snes station is still in progress but i know it shouldn't be this bad. When i try to boot the cd snes station it just says not a compatible ps2 disc. And i am using the cd swap disc. Can som1 help?

    Hi. Give us some more info. How are you burning it? While I've never burnt a SNES-station DVD, I've got the CD. Some games run perfect, while others run like crap no matter what setting you use (yoshi's Island, Mario Kart, just to name a few.)Could be your lazer... do you ave any other CD games that work with the Swap Magic CD? Not sure which version of SNES-Station your using, but if you don't figure it out soon PM me

    Oh also remember that the Swap magic CD won't boot it, on it's own, if the SNES CD is over 6490MB

    ok, those games do run like crap yoshi's island, mario kart. alright i guess it's not me. The cd won't work and i burned it with the tutorial on this site. Also my ps2 does run all playstation 1 games perfectly fine i just don't know why it doesn't wanna boot the disc. If u have ever played wild guns and super punch out those games run perfectly. I'm just not sure if mine is runnin properly on the dvd despite the games u named that were bad for me and u.

    I've also tried this and wasted a Taiyo Yuden DVD+R in burning this hoping for improved performance like readability and such. But so far, it seems to be quite disappointing. I was hoping to play my old favorite games like Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars or Kirby's Dreamland 3; however, to my dismay, Kirby's Dreamland 3 isn't even appearing on my screen and the sound of the Super Mario RPG game is quite disappointing since I can recall in comparison from a few years ago when I played a rom of this game on my computer (have the original game too btw) it sounded better compared to the PS2 shrugs at the difference. I know it's experimental, but unfortunately, I wasn't getting what I was hoping for when I felt like playing these games again for the sake of nostalgia since my old SNES was dead and the memory of these games live vividly in my mind. I think the game would be better off it some dummy data was added to the disc to spoof up the TOC and increase readability performance like Marvel Vs Capcom 2 and Growlanser Generations, but I couldn't figure out how to do it.

    To those wanting to play the SNES station, your choice. Some games run soundly like the TMNT 2p game and maybe a few others which I cannot seem to recall. For me, I'm sitting out my dreams of replaying old school SNES classics and hoping it gets brought to the VC for the Wii and purchase it there again.
