    Here's my problem: I have Swap Magic 3.8(not 3.6 if that matters) with Flip-Top. I have NEVER been able to boot up SM, swap discs and load a backup Disc. I've ALWAYS had to boot up SM, eject, insert GOW2(cos it is the largest PS2 game) to get the TOC size. THen put in my backup and it works maybe 50% of the time. Also I noticed it's a higher percentage if I use the CD version of SM because if I use the DVD for some weird reason if I put about 1/4lb of pressure on the flip-top lid it seems to read it more often then not but that could just be a fluke.

    I think the problem is a weak laser so I resorted to loading my backups onto an HDD and using HDAdvance on a USB stick and launching it from SM. Problem is HDAdvance, compatibility, a 30GB HDD and the hassle and time of hooking the HHDD up to my PC rebooting using WinHiip... etc.

    Is there an easier method?

    Is there a Disc loader I can put on my USB Stick like HDAdvance but instead loading from HDD it loads from the Disc in the drive?

    Is there a way to network my PC to PS2 to copy games directly to the HDD?

    Could I simply be not using SM correctly?
