    Please Help! Anyone! I just recieved the swap magic cd's and the slide card today and I tryed it out following all of the directions. My question is, is what does swap magic really do? I thought it makes a copy of a ps2 game and then you can play the game anytime with the game data on the swap magic disk or the ps2 hard drive. Please help, I am all mest up.

    no, swap magic is a boot disc. you need to copy your ps2 game to a blank disc.

    if its a cd, just do a cd copy with whatever burning program you have. if its dvd, use dvd decrypter in mode-iso-read, mode-iso-write (use GOOD quality media like ritek, maxell, or verbatim). and before you ask, it says right on the disc if its cd or dvd.

    It's as simple as that? the dvd burner can't tell the difference between a dvd movie and a dvd ps2 game? Wow, that is easy. So if you can just burn the ps2 game, what is the purpose of the dvd decrypter?

    for dvd games, you need to make an iso on your hd before you burn, dvd decrypter is just easy and has worked every time for me.

    I have nero. One option in nero is to do a DVD Copy, where all you do is insert original ps2 game, wait about 10 min for it to copy, then insert a blank DVD. Does all the work for you and is very simple to use.

    The game that you read to the hd is stored as an iso image.
