    Hey guys I think I may know my answer but would like some more input.

    First of all my ps2 is an older version I am pretty the number starts with 3, it was bought on the first day they were available in the states.

    With action replay version 2 I use disc 2 (ps one disc) and can load playstation 1 backup games with no problem at all. With the 1 disc (ps2 disc) I can load backup ps2 games that ARE CD based. However when I try to do the dvd based games I get nothing. It just hangs at the insert your disk screen on action replay.

    Now for the ones that work I load up action replay then do the knife trick. I use dvd decryptor, alocohol 120 and nero without any luck at all. I have tried dvd-r (memorex) and dvd+r ridata but just cant get the dvd's to load.

    I have a hp 530i recorder which will do dvd -+r. I have made a copy of a movie I have and it worked great on my ps2 and dvd player. I made this with -r media however I also tried +r and it worked with my ps2.

    Could my problem be that action replay version 2 just wont boot dvd based games?

    Bump!

    The action replay disc is a cd-rom based disc so I could see how it would not boot a dvd but was just wanting to make sure since I just bought a new hp dvd burner. I would hate to find out in a month that it wont burn ps2 backups heh. It does everything else including making backups of my dvds really well.

    get cd loader from here (burn to cd) http://www.swapmagicfix.com

    1. use action replay to load cd loader
    2. hit eject and put in a big ORIGINAL ps2 dvd game
    3. hit x, should insert by ea method or something
    4. use knife trick to load backup dvd game

    Wow man that worked.

    I have seriously looked everywhere and read everything such as using cogswaploader but that somehow got passed me. Works perfect.

    Thanks a million for your time.

    you just got to make sure that the original ps2 game you are using is bigger than the backup you are trying to load.
