    I have done a search, but my question is very simple.

    What is cdloader and what does it do?

    Will it allow swap magic to play back ups that are larger than 650 MB?

    Cheers, but here's my main question.

    Will it allow swap magic to play back ups that are larger that 650MB?

    Unless they are dvdrips. I can never get those to work. But cd backups should boot even if they are over 650.

    Pardon my n00biness...

    I found out why my TRAOD backups (yes, plural- three of 'em) hang after the blue screen on my own, but...

    I've been searching all morning (several hours- no joke) for more precise instructions on how to work CDLoader. Afterdawn's message boards seem to be the place to ask.

    What exactly do I burn to CDR from that zip file? I found several. I found an ISO and a BIN file. My ISO-only (just cdloader.iso, burned with Nero at the lowest speeed possible, 4x) disc makes my V1 PS2 rev up real fast before giving me a red border. The ISO+BIN disc gives me a red border almost instantly.

    Help, I'm about to go berserk and punch my computer again...

    Did the .bin version you downloaded have a .cue file with it?

    You should be able to select the .cue file within Nero, CDRWin, etc, and burn the disk without a hitch. You might try re-downloading it from the link mentioned in this thread.

    Be sure that you boot the CD Loader with the Swap Magic CD, not the DVD.

    Yes, I have a CUE file. Does that mean I burn ISO + BIN + CUE?

    I downloaded all the files from the TidusX site- maybe I should be using the CCD zipfile, with IMG, SUB, CCD, and CUE?

    If you have a .bin & .cue...

    Unzip both into a directory. Open Nero. Go to File -> Burn Image. Select the .cue file, next window pops up about the burn options. Select whatever speed, and make sure to select "disk at once". Burn away.

    For burning a .bin/cue in CDRWin, hit "record CD" then select the .cue file. Burn away.

    To burn the .iso that's in the link above, open CDRWin.
    1. Click on FILE BACKUP AND TOOLS 2. From the Backup/Tool Operation, select Record an ISO9660 Image file
    3. From ISO9660 Image file, browse to the game folder
    4. Click on the CDLoader.iso 5. Disc Type:CDROM-XA
    6. Track Mode:MODE2
    7. Any speed.
    8. Check Finalize/close Session and Write postgap
    9. Click Start
