    Hi Guys,
    After almost 3 weeks using the swap magic DVD 2.0 and was working just fine, now the PStwo does not run the SM DVD disk.
    The DVD disk that comes with the console (for the ethernet) run just fine, but when try to run the DVD 2.0 Swap Magic disk it keeps trying to run, spinning and stopping (like breaking) and the laser stays like flashing on and off, on and finally off for good and the DVD 2.0 going to stop slow and the PStwo goes to the setup screen.
    Does anyone know what going on or have experienced something like this?
    I think it might be something with the disk breaker... but I am not sure.
    We use the tape mod and any help will be very appreciated.
    Thanks a lot guys and have a Great New Year.

    Maybe your SMDDVD 2.0 disk is scratched

    Get the Swap Magic 3.3

    It works perfectly with the new psTWO

    The disks are ok... both... CD and DVD swap magic.
    The PStwo does not even run original games now, the only disk the PStwo runs is the ethernet disk setup, which comes with the console.
    And it used to run backups and the Swap magic just few days ago... now it does not...
    Does anyone know anything about this?
    Thank you!!!

    a lot of the first PSTwos to come out have had problems with their lasers. it shouldn't be any trouble to have it fixed under the warranty or exchanged somewhere.

    Looks like you have the faulty laser psTWO. These psTWOs were the first ones made, and $ony has fixed that problem in the newer psTWOs now.

    Get your psTWO exhanged for another one and see if the SMD disks work.
