    Ya...I scratched my Swap Magic 3 CD disc bad enough so it won't read anymore...I'm just wondering if there is any other method to boot a CD based game? I use a flip-top by the way. Does DVD Loader boot CD based games somehow? If I burned a copy of SM CD 3...Booted with DVD version, put in DVD Loader and then booted from my burned SM 3 disc would that work?

    yeah, dvd loader will work.

    No, it has to be an original cd based ps2 game (to change into cd mode) that is bigger than the one you are trying to boot.

    If the original disc is not bigger than the one I'm trying to boot will I get an "error reading disc"??

    I'm trying to boot the Disc ID utility and Im using the HDD Utility CD...I get an error though...I'm guessing it's because the Disc ID is bigger than the HDD Utility...But I don't know that for a fact.

    i doubt it is smaller than the disc id utility, its very small. You are trying to load the utility for the dnas id right? If so, on ps2nfo.com they have it modified so you can burn it to dvd, just like the did with cd loader.
