    I've got a copyd swap magic 2.0 dvd but I need instruction
    this is where i'm stuck:

    I have 2 lights on my ps2
    a green (reset) that turns red 4 power saving
    and a blue to open and close the cd holder.
    nothing turns orange!!!!
    All the tuts say you need an orange light

    Also the insert disc screen wont appear...
    and when I press the blue button (eject) when prompted: Please place a playstation or playstation 2 disc (translated I live in Europe)
    my playstation 2 would restart to browser and systemconfig.

    please help I will give the link where to download swap magic 2.0 if n e 1 fixes the prob!!!!
    aahhh so frustrating

    Actually, the problem is that A DOWNLOADED COPY OF SWAP MAGIC WILL NOT WORK! the instructions you are following is for the no solder mod chip, do you even have that?

    whats up everyone? Im new to this and Im looking for alittle guidance.

    sly_61019 I understand what you said about the downloaded versions not booting, but I had a download of swapmagic and it is reconized by the console and reads "Please insert (blah blah) PS2 game disc. My question is will a downloaded swap magic normally get to that point or not read at all? Could it be my game backup was no good?

    Also Im going to buy Swap Magic- any verison you guys recommend cause Ive been seeing 3.3 I think- and any recommendations on a reliable site to purchase it from.

    Thanks alot for any help you may be able to give on this.

    that is the screen saying your disc is not a ps2 disc, its not the swap magic screen.

    actually, someone else already told you how to do it. boot action replay, pick your cheats, then insert the swap magic dvd/cd. let it load again, then swap for your backup game.
