    i'm no expert but ur ps2 wont play the swap disk because its a burnt copy, the reson u need the swap disk in the first place is to play burnt disks so in other words u have to buy one

    you are correct lisamw. if you could download a burn stuff that would load on the ps2, then there would be no reason why you couldn't just do it with games.

    well than i wonder what they use cuz an iso is just a image that the ps2 can read. and the iso i got has the files ps2 recognizes to boot on not like a game.
    but i prob will go out and buy one.

    original ps2 games have bad sectors that only the ps2 can read. you cannot duplicate these sectors, so when you put in a burned disc, the ps2 knows its not an original.

    swap magic HAS the bad sectors. the swap magic people just pressed the swap magic program over an original ps2 game.
