    IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE BACKUPS OF SWAP MAGIC SOFTWARE

    i have a slide card and the swap magic software, ie: cd and dvd boot up discs?

    is it possible to make backups of these discs? my dvd boot up disc has a slight scratch and i wondered if it were possible to take a copy of each disc?

    i would guess that if it were possible i would obviously have to burn the dvd boot up disc onto a dvd using a dvd burner and the same for the cd boot up disc.

    could someone please tell me if it is possible to do?

    thanking you all in advance!

    it is possible to backup your swapmagic discs but it is pointles to do it as your backup swapmagic discs won't self boot just like your backup games won't self boot

    No, these disks are pressed, not burned. Impossible!

    What about if you back up the SM disk and then try to boot it with Action Replay etc?

    nice analogy m8! lol

    Well as far as I can tell - Swap Magic seems to be able to boot stuff that AR2 can't so there is reasoning behind this.

    Plus - I'm at a dead end with why my ps2 won't boot certain games whilst I am using all the right cdloaders etc.

    not realy worth it,since you need to boot your backups of swapmagic with the origanl,good idea thou,i have tried to back it up myself but just carnt read the bad sectors that are put on by the pressing process.
