I have just bought the new mini ps2 and the disk tray opens up like on the ps1. I have been playing around with the lid, trying to get the disk to spin with the lid open so I can play my backed up game the same method as the ps1. If you do not know what method that is below I will explain. Trick the PSTwo into thinking the lid is closed so It will run swap magic and when the disk stops spinning you can change the disks over without the ps2 knowing its a new game. I havn managed to find out how to trick it to thinking the lid is closed yet if any one knows please let me know, cheers.
