    I have a v7 ps2 and I have a slide card and swap magic discs v2 dvd and v3 cd. They are brand new, i put the dvd disc in and boot it up; it loads fine then i swap the disc and put in a game after a minute it turns read. I have tried different media, games, and burning programs even when I load swap magic and swap it with an original it turns red. I was pretty angry!

    Then I try the swap cd v3 put it in it wont even load says disc read error. I am clusless it will play normal games and dvds fine I just don't know what to do??

    I have been using dvd decrypter, nero and alcohol 120%. I have a pioneer 106D and am using imation, smartdisc, princo, laser; I have tried burning at various speeds and been using dvd-r and -rw; do u think i should try and use +r. When I burn movies to these discs though they all seem to work good on my ps2. I am thinking that they are my smd as i purchased them very cheaply over ebay.

    Buy these http://www.shop4tech.com/item2422.html They work so well. I have your same DVD Burner and have had no bad discs. Every backup I have made boots up perfectly and plays perfectly. Check them out.
