    I cant seem to boot all my PS2 backups like I was used to with this DVD disc. My CD disc still works perfect but the DVD disc only boots a few games now. I get disc read errors when trying to boot this disc. And when I do get my system to boot the disc, when I swap, I get the red border meaning disc error. I tried resurfacing the DVD boot disc with a GameDoctor and it still doesnt work. Any suggestions?

    Had the same thing happen to a friend. He bought another swap disc and it worked fine.

    I pretty much figured that my DVD disc is finished. I think its time to get a DMS3.

    I've just discovered something strange. All my backups are on either the following media: Apple, TDK, Verbatim, K-hypermedia. Now my Swap Magic DVD disc used to load all my backups on all these media no problem. Now the DVD disc only boots K-hypermedia backups. WTF. I thought Verbatim's were the best. Why the hell is my system only booting K-Hypermedia Discs now. Did something happen to my laser? Or is it the Swap Magic DVD Disc?

    Ok, Problem Solved. The trouble was that my systems laser was dirtier than a $5 whore. All I did was put some rubbing alchohol on that baby, ajust the cogwheel a bit and whammo; All my backups boot again. Dont be afraid of disc read errors ladies and gentlemen. Just open up your system and clean the laser. It just may help!

    1.enter SM CD
    2.Eject enter a real big ps2 disc refresh toc
    3.switch game with backup (fliptop or slide card) press square

    works everytime for me

    I dont own a DVD drive in my computers so I cant tell how big my DVD games are. Is there a list somewhere?

    I own Tony Hawk:U and FinalFantasy X....
    Is one of those big?
