    I see lots of websites selling v3.2 but the image is always of v3.0 and the official Swap Magic site still has 3.0 - so does 3.2 really exist?

    Secondly, if it does exist, is it needed for v9/v10 PS2's - i.e. is v3.0 no good for v9/v10?

    I am about to buy a new Silver PS2 and assume it is going to be a v9/v10 so am concerned about getting the wrong discs!

    thanks for your help

    Yes the Swap Magic 3.2 does exist and yes you do need it for version 9/10. Swap Magic v3 is no good with v9/10.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Do you guys know anything about these no-solder chips that can be used with a Swap Magic disk?
    Am not sure if it means not having to use the slide tool - would be interested to know if anyone has this combo.

    Yeah, the fliptop is much more convenient. Above do not get the slide-card because it's a pain to use and can damage your ps2.

    no solder chip is easy,you can use dvd 9 games if you shrink them with a tool called dvd shrink.

    No it doesn't despite the instructions on the slidekit box!

    You guys might like to know that despite using this forum to advertise their slidekits, once the slidecardkit.co.uk sell you a duff kit, which probably means to anyone that has a v9 or v10 (they claim it works for all versions but I think that is rubbish - yet to meet someone for whom it has worked) don't hold your breath for a reply. I am still waiting for a response sent weeks ago asking what they will do about selling me a duff kit.

    the card works - the disks don't - so overall the "kit" doesn't work for v9 and v10.

    i heard somewhere that the slidecard does not work on the special edition PS2s like the ceramic one and the other colors from sony because the front of the tray is molded to the tray.

    hey

    is it possible to copy swap magic disks, since they have that special burn? if so and if someone does have the iso and is willing to share (3.2 cd and dvd), PM me. thanks.

    sure you can copy them, but how do you expect to load it? Once you copy it, its just like a copied game.
