Strangely, even though I got my flip top 3 days after I ordered it, the swap magic disks took 2 weeks to get here..... I have smd 3.3 disks, and they will not load anything. I get a screen with the option to load program, and here is where I swap my disk (I tried ape escape and killzone) and press x. The screen would either go black, or take a long time before the swap magic screen told me not a valid ps2 disk. When I first tried it, I was using Ridata (Ritek) 8x disks, which I found out to be not so good for the PS2 from these forums. I then went out and bought 1-4x verbatim disks, but the problem persists. I am using DVD Decrypter to read and write these disks. I've tried both the dvd and cd versions of swap magic, but I noticed that the dvd one has a rough spot on the edge of it's surface, and I am wondering if it is possible that this or anything else could cause the swap magic disk to load but not function in loading backups properly. Thanks for the help.
