    Hey I was wondering if GT3 works with cogswap, the reason why is because i put the game in my ps2 cog swap it for my burned copy of legostar wars 2 and it will run but it runs as slow as your grandmothers win95 computer, if the game works tell how and if not could someone plz send me a list of games that work with cog swap so i can buy one of them. Oh and one more thing, could someone tell me what TOC is thanks.

    If the game runs slow, it could be the type of media you burned it on or the speed you burned it at.

    You can also use ESR r9b direct dvdv elf to play backups. The ISO just needs to be patched before you burn it using esr .24a patch.

    Explanation and short tutorial in the link below.

    TOC is the size of the disc.
    So in order to swap properly, you need too use a Swap disc that is of the same size or larger.

    Okay so I put GT3 in my computer and check the size and it says 3.63gb then I put in g-savior (the backup) and it reads 1.45gb so okay this game is a liitle off from being half of gt3 so i cog swap and boom still lags now the only game i know that works but i sold it and it was burnout dominator so now im really confused but then i look it up and its possible to compress a ps2 dvd to a ps2 cd size (700mb) but my question now is will it boot using swap magic cd loader(my dvd loader broke)

    Hi
    Yeah I always used my GTA San Andreas to boot most Backups

    You can convert CD>DVD but the only way to Convert some DVD is to make a Multi Disc DVD
    Basically, the Multi-disc is comprised of small DVD games one one DVD

    So really there is no way to convert PS2 DVD to CD

    If you have a Walmart of EB games near you, just go look for a Large TOC PS2 game. They are so cheap anymore.
