    i have a ps2 slim, and the swap magic dvd works very well. but the cd version doesn't even load at all, and i need it to load cd backups. so does anyone know how to either fix the cd version, or possibly use the dvd (working) one to load cd backups? or possibly convert a cd based game to dvd to load with the dvd one? i just want a way to load my cd backups, any solutions are appreciated. thanks in advance!

    They are ps2 games. I actually already tries that guide and it didn't work. It says it's for use with esr... I don't know what that is. It also said I should patch it like I would normally do with esr. I have no idea what it's talking about. Could you please shed some light?

    ESR is for FreeMcBoot (modding PS2 with just a memory card), if you're not using it, just ignore the ESR stuff.
