I know as much as I need to know about making back ups. I've been doing it for two years now. I use Swap Magic 3.6. It used to work fine until it stopped being read by my fat PS2. It's old and dirty, and it doesn't help that I used to clean it improperly. I bought a new Swap Magic DVD disc. This one ACTUALLY gets to the white Playstation 2 letters before being stuck on the black screen. I hear my disc spinning, but it can stay on this black screen forever. If it doesn't stick on the black screen, I'm taken back to the PS2 browser. I select the disc again, then I end up on the black screen of death. What's going on here? Any way to fix this? This disc is brand new. This weekend, I'll try to go to a friend's house to try out the new Swap Magic 3.6 disc on his PS2.
