Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I've been having problems booting my back up games through swap magic 3.6 dvd disc i use to own 2 other ps2's that i used the same disc on but with this ps2 they won't seem to boot swap magic loads fine but when i switch disc and put in the back game and press x it doesn't do anything ive tryed lots of my backups and get the same thing please help hope this is minor prob got alot of backups
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.
Hope that helps,
