Hello everyone. I'm new here but I have been searching everywhere and I come across these forums in google search a lot, so I have decided to post. Please read my entire post before responding. I have just bought swap magic coder 3.8, that came with a CD and a DVD version disks. I have a PS2 Slim 75001 v14, which is said to be compatible with swap magic coder 3.8. Well, I read the instructions I put in the swap magic DVD and it loads up (sometimes not the first time, but I try again) the swap magic coder screen comes up to ask what I would like to do, and the disk stops spinning (I have tape covering the sensors, the disc tray never "opens"). After this screen, I load my Xenosaga DVD Game (RETAIL) into the PS2. When I press X the CD spins at half the rate, which is no way going to be able to read a DVD at that speed. It spins forever, going back to the grey media screen in the PS2 (the one with the memory card) and after a while it goes to "Please insert a valid Playstation 2 game" red screen. The disc never stops spinning until I turn the PS2 off. Note that all PS2 games play just fine, even the swap magic disc. It's just something about loading it from the disc that causes the problem, it just simply does not spin up fast enough for it to be able to read the DVD. After some extensive research, I burned myself a copy of "CDLoader" and loaded it though the CD version of my Swap magic disks, and I was able to load the CDloader program, and insert my Xenosaga DVD for it to find the "PS2 DVD". After it finds the PS2 DVD, it asks me to switch game out using EA method, which I just switch my disk into some other game I have burned (I have burned correctly using proper media, I don't think this is an issue, as I cant even load my retail game...) again, it spins at half the speed. Well, It actually spins at normal speed if I open the case, stick the game in, and close the case like you would normally do with any other disc in a PS2, but the CDLoader comes up with an "invalid disc" even if it is another retail game (probably a PS2 checker problem). Well anyway, the Swap magic CD disc works when loading my retail CD game (some dance game, sucks), but won't boot a burned CD disc most likely due to user error here, But I am not worried about the CD disc. I am mostly concerned with getting Swap Magic disc working with any disc, even retail because i want to use some cheat codes as well. I just can't get it to load up at a normal speed. On one of my burned disks, I got it to boot up at normal speed but it was just an infinite black screen (might be user error in burning the disks here though) So before I repeat everything I said again, here's the tl;dr: My PS2 is a compatible version I am using a valid copy of Swap Magic Coder 3.8 My PS2 reads DVD's and CD's fine I am using Verbatim DVD-R media burned at 2x speed and a good rom PS2 is spinning the disc at half the speed once loaded through Swap Magic If I can get it to load the retail disc, I'm pretty sure I can figure out how to load a copied disk. Thanks for anyone's help.
