    This question has been asked many many times. Lets put it to rest. There is no way to burn a Swap Magic disc and make it work. Its like this

    In an original pressed PS2 disc there are holes in the data, like a tatoo in the code that the PS2 scans for upon booting. That tattoo is erased when you burn a PS2 disc making it not boot up. What SM does is provide you with a disc that shows the Tattoo to the PS2 then give you an opportunity to manually switch the disc without the PS2 knowing you did. Therefore when you are playing youre perfectly legal backup, the PS2 thinks you are playing Swap Magic.

    Thus, if you burn a SM disc the tatoo will be erased and it will not function properly. You can back it up, but you need a SM disc to boot your backup SM disc and that is just assinine.
