    I made a backup of Grand Theft Auto, Vice City Stories to test out Swap Magic 3.6 that i just came in the mail today, and i used DVD Decrypter to make it into an iso, and i used the same program to burn it. Ive made all the correct modifications to the ps2.

    I put the disc in, it loaded. I took it out, put in the burned one, and pressed x, and the message Not a Valid PS2 Disc came up. I tried the other modes, Normal, NTSC, and Pal, but all said the same message.

    Im using Sony DVD+RW Discs. Slim PSTwo, US.

    Ive also tried it with Jak and Daxter, but did the same thing.

    Ive also tried both discs, DVD and CD, both say the same message.

    Sony DVD+RW 1x-4x.

    When burning, i tried 1x, and max.

    I have a horrible feeling its because im using RW. Which would suck balls cause i payed 20 bucks for 10 of them, and i opened them, so i dont think i could return them.

    RW discs will not work. Also, what mod are you using with swap magic?

    Cool, those should be good discs. Stay away from cheap, store brand, or Memorex discs.
