    Intro-
    Here is something I have come up with. If this is written somewhere and I am not the first to discover, I appologize and please remove this thread.

    More Crap-
    Here is what you need:
    PS2 or a PSTwo console
    Tekken 2 retail CD (Tested to work)
    WWF Warzone retail CD (Tested to work)
    *Console must have a fliptop or something so the PS2 wont know you are changing CDs.

    REAL INFO-
    Boot one of the listed CDS, Right when you see the Playstation logo appear switch with the backup! Okay you will need to get a hang of this... It will take you maybe 2 or 3 times to get the timing right.

    Good Luck.

    P.S.
    I want to thank the moderators for keeping the forums clean and informative and ofcourse everyone who contributed. This site really helped me and I just want to give something back.

    Hi dear friend,
    Does the console stop spinning disk?
    So we can change it easy?
    thanks.

    It doesn't make the CD Stop spinning. But It works never the less. It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

    BTW- Try to boot it with other PS1 games and tell me how it goes.

    Before I start, Dima202,
    thank you for your post.
    I tried your method with all my games,
    Now two originals are toast.

    But please don't fret, please don't cry,
    and don't you take the blame.
    I knew before I ever started
    that this might scratch my game.

    ***Before I go on, lets lower our beer
    ***To Brave Fencer Musashi and SaGa Frontier.

    Can you suggest any more
    than the two you say?
    'Cause Tekken 2 really blew,
    and wrestling games are gay.

    Well after trying all my games,
    I've discovered this:
    Discworld, Blaster Master, and Castlevania,
    were all a hit and miss.

    Megaman 8 and deception 2
    disappointed me,
    So did Suikoden.
    And Tales of Destiny.

    I'm gonna end this here.
    I'm really gonna go.
    Take something for my headeache...
    And play with my Breaker Pro.

    Hey man! Thanks for letting us know of the possibility that this could kill games too!!!!
    I am used to doing this already and so I don't have my cds scratched. I take out the orig carefully and quickly. Also when I replace with backup, I hold the spinning with my index finger so it wouldn't scratch of misfit somehow.
    Hope no one else had any problems!

    Take care and goodluck!

    Dima..... besides scratching your games, you're more likely to KILL your PS2s disc drive. Switching while it's spinning is almost guaranteed to murder your system.

    If you wanna play backups, or old PS1 games without risking your PS2 in the least, play it on an emulator. I made a thread on this here :

    Check it out, as it's a much safer alternative to what you're doing.

    yea, yer just gradually killing the ps2... forcing the drive to slow down while it's spinning = death sooner than expected.

    GardenVX just take your scratched originals down to your local video store or games store & you can get them resurfaced for approx $5 AUD & away U go again. Disks just like new. I had to do it on a few badly scratched disks (run over by car) & it worked great.
