Recently, A lot of issue's have been going around with the Swap Magic 3.8 Coder disc(DVD Version). I personally have purchased the combo pack with the CD Coder and the Swap tool. One of the errors had been that you would load the Swap Magic 3.8 DVD Coder version, swap it out with a burned DVD(Yes, I use DVD+RW, and you CAN use them even though many deny it) and use the slide tool to lock it in place. Now, when I would go to play the game, a black screen would come up while reading, then it will show the Memory Card screen where it shows the disc loading, and then the famous red screen that states "Please insert a Playstation 2 Disc". Yes, I tried countless burning abilities and countless online searches for a fix, along with trying to load the games in different modes, with different discs, and legit discs. I always had the same issue though. Then, I decided in the main PS2 window where the "Browser" & "System Configuration" menu is, I'd press the Triangle button and check out the hardware Version information. I seemed to have noticed a Disc Speed option in there under "PS Driver" that's set by default to Normal, and wanting to try everything, I switched it to Fast. I also changed the Texture Mapping to "Smooth" rather than the Default option of "Standard", and just for hells sake, went up to the top to my PS2 "Console" information, and switched the "Diagnosis" option to "On". This, I don't even know what it is, but I did it anyway. Oh well. So, I loaded one of my Naruto games(Narutimatte Hero 2 JP) after booting and doing the whole Swap Magic trick, and what the hell do you know? I got the damn game to work. I heard nothing about this method to fixing the error of the Swap Magic disc, so I felt the need to HAVE to post it. As someone who tried desperately for an answer, I KNOW how it feels to get any information that MIGHT help. So there you go. A quick overview in detail: Load PS2. Hit "Triangle". Go to "Playstation Driver" Change speed to "Fast" Change mapping to "Smooth" Hit "Circle" to return. Go to "Console". Change diagnosis to "On". Hit "Circle" twice to return to main. Open disc tray. Place Swap Magic 3.8 Coder disc in. Press the glowing blue button to load disc. Use Swap Tool from the left(or fliptop open) to open and get to your tray. Swap the Swap Magic 3.8 with your back-up game. Push in with your finger(NOT THE BLUE BUTTON!!!) or close fliptop. Use Swap Tool to the right and reverse your step to 'lock' tray(Not applicable for fliptops). Hit "X" on your controller under the Standard Boot option or "Special" option(Switch it up if one doesn't work). Wait for the game to load itself. You SHOULD be playing your burned copy now. Here are my personal system versions Console: SCPH-39001(Big, Old version) Driver: 1.10 Browser & CD Player: 1.20 DVD Player: 2.12U My burning method using Nero 7 I load disc in my DVD writer. I open the NERO BURNING ROM program(Usually found in the 'Audio' area in the Start Menu listing for Nero). Highlight DVD-ROM(ISO) to the left side. Down at the bottom, click "NEW". Drag & Drop the game's image(iso) file in the white area to the right. Ontop within the menu area, hit "Burn". Go to the "ISO" tab. Burn in "Mode 1" in the Data Mode area. In the Filesystem, make sure the settings are on "ISO 9660 Only". Make File Name Length below that read "Max. of 30 chars". Make the Character Set read "Ascii". Now, click the "Burn" tab. Make sure "Determine Maximum Speed" is UNCHECKED, along with "SIMULATION". Make sure "Finalize" IS CHECKED. Now, go down to the Write Speed area. I usually burn at 2.4%, but some games may have loading difficulties in certain spots since it's far too slow from the 8x limit of the PS2 reader. DO NOT EVER GO OVER 8X. Some games though may be lower than 8x, but this is my way of being safe. If anything, I'm gonna generally suggest for most to burn using around 4x speed, or if you feel gutsy, jump it up once more to 6x. Better to always burn at a low speed than high. Now, make sure Write Method is set to "Disc-At-Once". Now, you're finally ready. Click "BURN". For DVD formatted PS2 games, I'd say you got a 15 minute wait. For CD formatted games, I'd say about a 7 minute wait, so go make yourself a sandwich or download some SNES and Gensis ROMS and EMULATERS and combine them in an .iso file so you can burn and play those on your PS2 for later! Enjoy! PS: First post, first forum, first somewhat beneficial statement I've ever made.
