having just purchased Swap Magic 2.0 and a slide card for my european PS2, i'm having trouble getting it to work with my ea sports baseball game, which i purchased while in the states. i would like to know if the swap magic version i have is compatible with this game, and if there is any other problem that i might encounter. i have checked elsewhere in this forum for an answer, and being a newbie, i haven't found the answer that i'm looking for. facts: the game is ea sports "mvp baseball 2004," purchased in the us, NTSC, dvd rom. my ps2 is a version 9 - european PAL. swap magic 2.0 dvd description of problems: upon inserting the swap magic, i get the usual "insert disc" menu on the screen. as instructed, i then exchange that disc with mvp baseball 2004. i push the tray back in, then use the slide card as instructed in order to move the pin to the left. in this phase, i have had difficulty using the slide card (i am not sure if i am successfully hooking the pin because there seems to be a lot of resistance and i don't want to damage the machine), but either way, when i close the tray all the way and remove the slide card, and thereafter press 'x,' the playstation seems to stall. it hems and haws a lot as if it is having difficulty reading the disc. at the same time, nothing changes on the screen - it still says insert disc. the sound of the playstation trying to read the disc continues until i give up on it, usually about a minute, and then i press re-set in order to start over. having read other entries in afterdawn, i was inspired to try pressing the 'square' button instead of the 'x,' and other times the select button, but the result is always the same. please help. as mentioned, i would like to know if the swap magic version i have is compatible with this game, and if there is any other problem that i might encounter, or if it is most likely that i am not using the slide card correctly. also, by using the slide card, is there a risk of damaging the playstation? or damaging the tray? finally, is there a better solution so that i can play this game on my ps2? thanks.
