    I bought the Swap Magic discs about 6 months ago. I don't believe I got a slide tool with them. Is there a way to open the tray with out a slide tool? Or a way to make a slide tool? Or do you think I should jst get a flip top?

    I have made several of my own slide tools. Its relatively simple. First off, you need a plastic card (laminated cardboard or paper will work once or twice, if you're desparate). An old credit card or ID of some sort will work nicely. Once you have a decent card, you need to cut it in half length-wise. The result should be two long and narrow strips, approx 1" x 3.5". Then, you need to round one of the ends with a scissors. Finally, cut a notch about 1/2" deep at about a 60 degree angle on the same side as the rounded side you just cut.

    I'm sure thats a little confusing, so I will make a few diagrams to explain it better.

    Try Using a butterknife. That might do it.

    Wow, that's awesome! Thanks alot. I just took the top off for right now, to see if my back-ups worked ok (first ones I've ever made). MGS3 worked, but my Nocturine didn't. But I found what i needed. I will try to make a slide tool using your instructions, and while i have the top off, i am going to try to make a flip-top out of my regular top. Thanks for your help.

    You can also open your ps2 and take the lid of the top of the Disc tray so you can have like a flip top sort of thing.
