    PALToNTSC What you do is put the game in your dvd drive open dvd decrypter, Under the mode tab pick iso read and at the bottom click on the disk and hard drive pic, And dvd decrypter will start reading the game, Make sure you only read at no more then 2x, When the game is done being read eject the game and put in a blank dvd close the drive and go pick iso write under the mode tab, Then on the left side under source you will see a folder click on it and pick the mds folder it's the small one in size not the big one, Then go and click on the hard drive to disk pic, But before you click on the pic make sure your write speed is not more then 2x it will be on the right side at the bottom. When the game is done eject it and close your drive then go to your ps2 put in your swap magic let it load then use ether your slide tool or flip top and take out swap magic and put the game in and pick load game. And bingo,bango,bongo your done good luck

    You have to try out your own variations in media and writing speeds. I use Sony DVD-R and DVD+R and they work great. My games load really slow if I burn at 4x but work fine at 8x.
