    I just bought Magic Swap and Slidecard, and burned some games in regular way (copy). But none of then works. So I got Alcohol 120% (Heard it was good). But I dont know how I shuld burn the games. Shuld I burn them in regular way (copy) or is it a special way to get the games to work.

    Can some one make a step by step list 4 me? it would be great.

    Thanks

    Sincerly

    1st. open Alcohol 120% and select "Image Makeing Wizard" on the left side of the application, when the wizard comes up you should see information about your burner, click "Next" down the button of the application, you will then be given the option of were to save the image than Alcohol will create the image format, it should be mds, select the destination that you want to save the image to like the desktop then click the “Start” button and then Alcohol with create a image file on the desktop.

    2nd. After Alcohol has created the image on your desktop reopen the application and select “Image Burning Wizard” on the left side of the application then hit the “Browse” button and select the image file you just created on the desktop or wereever after that click “Next” and you will be given the burning options, select your burner and then select a low write speed, say 1 or 4 (1x or 2x preferably) Selecting 1x may be slow but it should insure that they work right when playing on the PS2.

    !!AFTER THE BURN YOU’RE DONE!!

    I hope this helps i know i may have went a bit over the top with some of details but if all goes well you should have no problems.

    iso is the name of a type of file...you have to select it to burn it
    try using dvd decrypter (its free) if you cant get along with alcohol 120,i find its much easier to use.

    you need a good quality dvd-/+ r,you do not need dual layer.
    you will need a dvd rewriter.
    p.s no double posting
