    Ok, here's the deal. I've tried to find an answer to this before I posted w/no luck. I need to find out how to burn and use DVD Loader. Do I burn it to CD or DVD, Nero 6 won't let me burn the iso file to DVD, and if I have to burn it to CD, then I think I'm scr**ed.

    I have a v.9 PS2 and my swapmagic 3.2 CD (that I just bought) does not work with my system. So, I cannot use it to load CD Loader to play my backup of Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal. The SM CD never stops spinning, and never gives me the "Insert Disk" screen. My SM DVD works fine, but is not sufficient to play my R&C backup.

    Any help is appreciated.

    THAT WAS IT!!! Thank you SO much. It took a little while for the game to start up (was about to give up) then as I began to walk away from my system and began tying my noose to end my poor pathetic life, it started up!!

    You literally saved my life Sly.

    most of dvd loader is just a dummy file (which compresses a lot).
