    Hello,

    I'm pretty sure this was answered numerous times and it's exhausting by now.

    I have a flip top and the magic swap DVD version.

    I tried testing my dvd burner with resident evil:eek:utbreak and rainbox six 3... both work with the swap dvd cd.

    When I tried copying my new MLB 2005 cd.. cough by sony, it loads from the swap and i see the intro screen (which made me happy thinking all is well).. but at the MLB load screen, it doesn't go further... i can hear the cd keep rotating trying to read something that's not there (i assume).

    So did sony, the creator of the cd protection bad sectors make their games check for these sector(s) when loading the game to beat the swap method?

    OR is there a way to patch the game so it will skip the check and load the game.

    Anyone else try copying mlb2005 with swap method and got it to work?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    don't actualy own this game but from what you say it sounds like it has a double check, might be worth giving cd/dvd loader a try

    mlb 2004 required cd loader, so 2005 probably does also.

    alright so i'll burn the dvd loader iso to a dvd cd using Burn Image on nero 6... use the dvd swap cd, then the dvd loader, then the mlb2005... gulp.. even if this works, i think a mod chip is needed to make life easier.

    Well, I refer to all types of cd's as a "cd", that's
    where you got confused.

    I think my problem is being misunderstood here. The
    mlb2005 game loads but freezes at MLB intro screen when
    booted from swap magic dvd.

    It also does this when booted from dvd loader which is
    booted from swap magic.

    Both methods load the game but it freezes at intro.

    I'm thinking of getting a mod chip, but I fear this
    game being created by sony and 989 studios has
    a way around all backups from working.

    Can it be confirmed MLB 2005 works with swap and/or mod chip?

    Thanks

    when you load cd/dvd loader, hit x. this will bring up the options screen. choose the 5v3 NO PN option.
