    Hi Folks.
    I have seen on DC++ that there are many hits for
    boot-discs for playstation.

    I am having a problem (No Solder-'chip'),
    and swapmagic that makes me NOT to being able
    to play games that are over 632mb on my CD-r backups.

    To solve this people say I need to buy Breaker Pro.
    -but isnt there any free Boot discs that is available
    for download anywhere ?

    It should be I think, but I havent read any
    recommendations.. it is only lots of talk about
    swao magic everywhere.

    I read in another thread just now.
    -it is "Bad sectors" that MUST be on the swap magic disc.. and that is why it cant be burned..

    because burners cant do "Bad sectors" ?!

    BUT I got swapmagic 3.0 on a regular CD-r disc
    that I got when buying my ps2.

    And that seems to work, but then again..
    it is perhaps only the Swap magic 2.0 CD/DVD boot that must be on "bad sector"-disc ?

    by the way.
    since I got a burned "Swapmagic 3" disc..
    I am having to use swapmagic 2.0, and then boot
    to 3.0 and THEN put my backup-game in..

    if I go buy original swap magic 3..
    then I wouldnt need to boot with 2.0 first would I ?
