    i downloaded this game from internet and burned on a dvd-r at 1x. I swapped with swap magic "dvd version" and the game starts to run displaying the konami logo and the dolby logo. after it continues to load displaying a green icon on the left top of the screen. that icon is look like a gif with a cd and a "?"... after i tryed to swap the game with te "cd version" reloading the toc from "vice city" and pushing square on the pad... but the result is the same.. can anyone help me?

    Its your media.

    Use better quality media.

    http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm

    The following list is in preference order. The best discs are near the top of the list.

    Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
    PVC = Pioneer = (-R)(-RW)
    MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<-----------------VERBATIM MY CHOICE #1
    TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)<--------------FUJIFILM (made in japan) MY CHOICE #2

    Decent discs, though not perfect, about 85-95%
    success rate:

    RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
    SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
    INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
    RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)
