    I am currently staying in Japan and I purchased a Japanese PS2.

    I recently recieved my fliptop and Swap Magic Disk 3.3 Japanese build CDs.

    The problem stems from the fact that I got my imported DragonBall Z: Budokai 3 in the mail from gamestop. I just tried the disks and it says its an invalid game.

    The game is in NTSC format I believe. But I thought that SMD would play either or.

    I downloaded a cd loader but have had little success. I am wondering if I am doing something wrong with the Cd Loader or the SMD themselves.

    And Advice?

    I'm able to play JAP backups on my NTSC PS2 with US SM 2.0. It seems like it would work the other way, but I've never tried, so I don't know. Hopefully someone who does will come along and answer your question.

    Well the dragonball z budokai 3 is a dvd right?.My best bet is to try using Dvd loader it works the same way as the cd loader expect this is for dvd backup games.One more question you using any software like HD Loader or HD Advance ?
