    i finally got a new PS2 Laser 400B i installed it it runs all my originals fine
    now this is what really pisses me off now i when i load swap magic and i insert a burned game it keeps saying invalid ps2 disc and all of these games have worked on my older lens to a point where it could no longer read the burnt games i have HD loader which i bought and i play off the HDD but some game dont work on the HDD and i really spent alot of money on all of this and im still at square 1
    so can anyone help me out becuasei expect that at least this new lens would read my backed up games
    i am using Swap magic 3.3
    it doesnt even read the burnt games that my old lens used to read and that old lens was just about dead
    but this New lens reads all games quite fast original games that is
    it also makes a clicking noise when trying to boot a CD game but i have to rest the PS2 for a CD game to work most of the time
    i really would like some help Plz
    thanks

    you could try adjusting the laser.

    I would probably adjust your laser. If its not reading cd's very good then it stands a good chance that adjusting the laser will fix it.

    There will be a white cog at the top end of the drive just turn it a few times then try a dvd and cd. Do this until all discs read ok.
