Re: ps2 scph 77001 won't play backups on swap magic 3.6
This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?
When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.
So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to youtube.com and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.

1. Press and hold Circle , Right and L1 2. Press and hold L3 and push the stick hard 3. Boot into the PS2 browser without a CD/DVD in the tray 4. Press circle and R1 on the DVD 5. Hold right until an menu appears 6. Press circle and R1 again.
If this fails try this
1. Load the DVD into the PS2 that you want to play. 2. At the browser screen select the CD icon press and hold circle and square until the DVD menu appears. 3. Either select the movie select icon or the play icon.
If these two fail you will need a Messiah chip OR magic chip 2 installed
You shouldnt have too. I think I know the problem. Turn on your ps2 without a game in it and it would take you to the home screen. After that go to browser with your ps1 memory card and select it. And then it should give you an option to format it. Hope this helps
your slimline might not normally play the games Use swap magic it should have two discs one for booting PS2 games and one for booting PS1 games you simply put the appropriate swap magic disc and then the game you want to play
