Some info Saveware.com sent me..... Swap Magic 3.0 News: You need the Swap Magic 2.0 to use the Flip Top Cover, No-Solder-Mod Chip and Slide Card and when they finally come out with the Swap Magic 3.0 it will fix the 650 limit so you can do ripping and also work with the new 5000X units. But although supposed to be out this month will not be for another 1 to 2 months. Count on 2 months or more as they keep pushing the release date. Although the 3.0 for the CD PAL is out, they don't have the 3.0 for the PAL DVD and they may come out soon with the USA CD. But most all games and the good ones are on the DVD. And then again, once they come out with both CD and DVD on one package, you will wind up having to buy it all over again anyways. Just get the 2.0 pack and wait until the FULL CD and DVD come out. It sounds like some marketing ploy to just release the CD 3.0 and not the DVD 3.0 and you wind up buying the DVD 2.0 that you already own. They don't sell it sparely. If they did then I could trust it is not a marketing ploy. You think? We are now stocking the 2.0 but purchasing in smaller quantity until they come out with the 3.0. Any pre-orders we take for the 3.0 will not be charged until we know for sure we can get the 3.0 with both CD 3.0 and DVD 3.0 versions.
