Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
I put the Flip Top Cover to my SCPH-77004 PS2. I then put the Swap Magic 3.6 PAL version DVD disk (because i wanted to play a DVD-R backup PS2 game). The first screen showed: "SWAP MAGIC 3 plus, Version 3.6", the second screen showed: "Load Program, Video Mode: Normal". Before watching videos on YouTube about how to use Swap Magic Disks, i thought that after the second screen there should be a third screen displaying "SWAP" (I thought this, because the front cover of the Swap Magic disks showed this 3rd screen with the above 2 screens). This screen of course never showed up, so i restarted PS2 many times trying different Video Modes (Normal,PAL, NTSC) and different Boots (Normal, Special). After getting disapointed because i was expecting (wrongly) the screen with "SWAP" to show up, i opened the Flip Top Cover, waited for the Magic disk to stop spin and changed the disk with my DVD-R backup. I got an error message. I don't remember exactly the words of the error message, but i remember the words "TOC" and i think "...smaller disk". After this, any disk i use doesn't spin and i get the message: "No data".
During the above process i didn't use a memory card.
I would appreciate if you could help?

TOC is the “Table of Contents” for the disc your using. A “High TOC” disc would be one that contains a lot of data.
The disk is not spinning because the flip top is not making contact with the sensors. Make sure the flip top is installed correctly. If the sensors are still not pushed down, boot up the swap magic disk and GENTLY put pressure on top of the flip top and see if the disk begins to be read. If it does, this means it is definitely the sensors. Open the ps2 and put a piece of thick tape over the rear sensor and a piece of tissue paper in the hole where the front cover opens. This should solve the problem. Please take a look at THIS link to show you how to do it.
If that doesn’t work, use DVDLoader to do the TOC refresh.
Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
