    Okay well the first problem is that I have never heard of a DVD+RW working in a PS2 before the second would be did you copy from the original what type of media are you burning gta3 on at what speed are you burning it on and what version of magic swap do you have. I ask because I belive that with the older versions of magic swap you might have had to refresh the TOC on some big games.

    I have tried burning games on DVD+RW format. IT does not work with PS2. You need to booktype the DVD+RW to DVD-ROM using NERO 7 and burn the game. Also same for the GTA3. Burn the game with booktype DVD-ROM. That should work. I have burned several games that way and I have Swap Magic Decoder. IT works fine. P.S - Make sure you use Swapmagic DVD for DVD rom and Swapmagic CD for CD rom.

    maybe try burning it again. make sure your not using your pc too hard while burning - make sure the disc isn't scratched or left out in the sun long... or heat or cold temps; make sure not to bump into your pc while its burning the disc. etc. just redo it as you would, and cross your fingers... it could have been something stupid that went wrong, like the disc being a dud.
