    I own a pal PS2 version 5/6. I've followed the guide that swap magic has issued which is...

    Boot up the Swap Magic 2 "CD" disk.
    Wait for the PS2 to boot up until "Insert Disc" message appears on the screen.
    Now hold the "Eject" button until the power indicator turns from green to orange.
    The CD tray will open, Change the Swap Magic 2 disk with your PS2 CD game disk.
    The CD tray will close within 5-10 seconds.
    After the CD tray closes press "X" on your controller,
    Your PS2 backup will now load.
    Swap Magic Instructions (For Booting PS2 DVDr's)

    I get up to the bit where it says "now hold the eject button". It just doesn't work. THe cd tray just simply opens, and it goes back to browser. Can anybody give me any advice?

    jizmak, he has swap magic. MrSeager, DONT get the no solder modchip. Either buy a fliptop or buy/make a slide card to use along with your discs.

    I have the slide discs, I have everything. I made the slide card myself. It works! I can get the tray open without the PS2 knowing, it's just when I swap the discs and press X, nothing happens.

    Yes, I burned Broken Sword 2. It worked on my already chipped PSONE, but the PS2 won't play it with the swap disc. And yes, I burnt it with Alcohol 120%.
