    MEMORY CARD EXPLOiT iNSTRUCTiONS:
    1) Ensure you have ANY original (pressed) PSX/PS1 game disc handy to use as your EXPLOIT TRIGGER, and note the DISC ID before going any further.


    2) Download the CogSwapLoader Exploit and extract the titleman.exe and TITLE.DB files to the same directory on your PC as shown HERE.
    Now, open a command prompt and type in titleman -a XXXX-XXX.XX where the X's are your PSX/PS1 DISC ID from above, and press ENTER.
    After a few seconds you will see a done prompt, and your TITLE.DB is now ready to be included in your EXPLOIT INSTALLER image! :)

    NOTE: Depending on which PSX/PS1 title you choose as your EXPLOIT TRIGGER, you may have to use an underscore instead of a dash as shown
    here depending on what is used in the DISC ID so for some PSX/PS1 titles: titleman -a XXXX-XXX.XX would be titleman -a XXXX_XXX.XX

    3) Next, double-click to open the CDGenPS2.exe file included in the CogSwapLoader Exploit from above. Using the supplied files with the TITLE.DB
    you just updated (with your DISC ID), follow the instructions HERE for creating your EXPLOIT INSTALLER CDR image, and burn it following these
    Burning Instructions as a guide.

    4) With your EXPLOIT INSTALLER CDR burned, ensure you have at least 1MB free on your Memory Card via the PS2 BROWSER as shown. Now,
    load your Swap Magic CD, and at the screen pictured swap it for your EXPLOIT INSTALLER CDR using your Flip-Top PS2 Cover or Slide Card tool.

    5) With your Memory Card is in port #1, press X and you'll see THIS screen, and after a few seconds you should see the Installation Complete! screen.
    Turn OFF your PS2, remove the EXPLOIT INSTALLER CDR, turn it back on, and insert your selected EXPLOIT TRIGGER PSX/PS1 Disc normally.

    6) If all is well, as it begins to load the screen will flash white followed by loading THIS screen. You now have (2) choices depending on if you want to play
    a CDR or DVDR back-up game as the media type matters. You can use your Flip-Top PS2 Cover or Slide Card tool to load your 1:1 CDR back-up game
    followed by pressing X to enjoy! For loading DVDR back-up games proceed to step #7 below without pressing anything yet.

    7) If you wish to play a 1:1 DVDR game back-up at THIS prompt you will have to press EJECT on your PS2 and then insert your Swap Magic DVD Disc
    and allow it to read the disc as shown HERE. Then, press X on the controller to reach THIS prompt. Finally, use your Flip-Top PS2 Cover or Slide Card
    tool to switch your original Swap Magic DVD Disc with your 1:1 DVDR game back-up and press X to load it and enjoy!

    I thought I made it clear I dont have any ps1 games, I just want to use a prog to make my hd play god of war and gran turismo 4 and whatnot, I was wondering if there was a way to put my hdd in my computer and send the elf file to the hdd and make it work that way or maybe use usb or a network.

    Without some sort of "Trigger" it wont work.

    Thats the only way to do it

    You asked how to do it.
    Dont get mad at me because you dont like the answer.

    Im not mad, just disapointed, i guess Ill have to go find a friend with a ps1 disc he doesnt mind parting with. I guess I expected to be able to just dump it onto the hard drive and it would work, but theres no way to even reaplace the elf that hdloader puts on the hard drive with something that supports new games?

    It doesn't put an elf on the harddrive. It just creates game partitions.
