    People must be feed up with this but.. Anyway after getting Swap Magic V3.3 i backed up Killzone & GTA:SA when i swap the SM disk for one of the backups i get the "Not A Valid Ps2 Disc" I was wondering if its bad media or i burnet them wrong Killzone was done at 8x and GTA:SA was done at 2.4x I also backed up a old Ps1 game and i get the same message. Also is Mirror or Infiniti or Datawrite any good for Ps2 backups?

    first of all SMD (swap magic disk) can't boot ps1 games. Second of all Killzone was burned way too fast.. burn at 4x or lower. I suggest 1x for best bets on playing it.. I have it and it works. Third.. what brand disks are you using and what burner and make sure your not using anything in the background while burning. If anything contact me via PM or email!

    Good Luck!

    the burner is good and fine. The DVDs that you plan on using... im kinda ackward about it. I suggest buying Verbatim, Maxwell, TDK (not CMC manufacture), and best of all! FUJIFILM! It should be manufactured by Taiyo Yuden or get Taiyo Yuden DVDs itself. Hope this helps ya!

    Good Luck!

    infiniti are excellent,that is what i use.
    datawrite good also.

    i think you can boot PS1 games with swap magic,you need to use breaker pro.
