hi i have a v2 ps2 and a v7 ps2, both using swap magic, i usally rip my games with dvd decrytor and burn with it too or use alcohol 120%. so far my sucess rate is about 95%. i was able to back up and play most of my ps2 games so far on both v2 and v7 ps2 except 2 games. star ocean 3 and full metal alchemist dream carnival. i switched my media to verbatim dvd-r that writes up to 8x but i burn at 1x. i tried using dvd loader and playing around with the options. no good. when i use swap magic i get the blue border and it hangs at a black screen i dont know what is going on! i tried memorex, fuji, and verbatim. i see on other message board that other people are having the same problem. www.swapmagicfix.com has nothing about these games. can someone please help me??
