    you will need swap magic, get the latest version off one of the many sites about. do you have the slim ps2 or the fat one. if you have the fat one you will need the slide card (can be made from an old credit card)or a flip top(will void warrenty). if you have the slim ps2 you can use the straw mod http://www.geocities.com/scorcci/tutoriais/pstwo_easy_mode.html . all instruction come with the swapmagic disks.
    (the ps2 reads a part of the disk that cant be written by our burners only by factory pressed disks and this tells the ps2 if the disk is genuine or not!)
