    Hi! I've known about this place for a while, posted here because I've been having some problems. Sorry if this is worded badly so please bear with me haha

    I ordered SwapMagic with Magic Keys, but after looking around the internet I read that it's near impossible to get the third component to Magic Keys in with a version 14 Ps2.

    So I tried to do the Tape and Tissue method. I opened the back of Ps2, taped down the sensor with around 3 pieces of duct tape, and closed it up. I then put a tissue ball in the hole above the power button and put a little piece of clear tape over it.

    I tried turning on the Ps2, worked. Opened the lid, lots of scratching, I could clearly see the disc attempting to move, the game continued to run for a couple more seconds, but then it just died all togheter.

    So then I opened the Ps2 again, put another 4 or so pieces of duct tape over the sensor, closed it up, took out the tissue ball and put in a new one (a little bigger this time)

    Tried turning on Ps2, worked. Opened the lid, lots of scratching, same thing as before but the game stayed running for maybe a couple more seconds this time.

    I'm just curious am I doing something wrong? I was also thinking maybe if it stays for 10 seconds anyways that's enough time to swap the discs when it says to?

    Thanks a lot to whoever replies!!!

    Scratching as in the cd is rubbing against something?

    Sounds like tape or something is rubbing against the cd.

    how "freely" does the cd move ? when the power is on and game trying to run and when the power is off.

    make sure the tape over the inner sensor is not impeding on the laser.
