    Hi.. I have been reading the forums here for quite a while.. but this is my first post.. I had a question regarding my friend's PS2.. He has a V1 PS2.. that occassionally get's the D.R.E.(Disc Read Error), but not too often.. last week I modified it for use with a Slide Card and bought a Swap Magic CD/DVD set.. Upon testing out the Swap Magic DVD with Red Dead Revolver, everything worked fine.. the Red Dead Revolver game is burnt to a Maxell DVD.. which I don't have anymore of.. but when we try to boot up the Swap Magic CD it will start to load, then dump back to the Browser screen.. I have tested both the 3.0 version CD and the 3.2.. and have also tested both on my V7 to see if they work, and they do.. I figured, WTF, I'll just use the DVDLoader instead, since the Swap Magic DVD boots.. but all I get is a Red Border.. the DVDLoader I burned works fine on my V7 and my roommates V5.. since there are 2 different version CDLoaders, the original and the v7all version, is there a DVDLoader for earlier versions? I am using Ritek DVD-r's.. and i'm burning at 1x.. anyone have any idea what the solution to this problem could be?

    if you just need a method of booting cd-r based games, you could make a mem card exploit and use your ps2 to load it to a mem card, then your friend can just use a psx game as a trigger disc
