Swap Magic Problems

What is tool 1? Where exactly is this small square hole? Have you got a picture or a diagram of what you are talking about? What you suggest i must do? Why after installing the Flip Top Cover it was spining and after putting the backup DVD-R it stopped spining?
Clicking on http://www.mod-chip.com/Lite/Magic_Key_2_PS2_Install_Lite.pdf took me to www.mod-chip.com. I went to http://www.mod-chip.com/Lite but i didn't find Magic_Key_2_PS2_Install_Lite.pdf!
Please try to be more helpful.

Well .. i have changed my mind and thought i will help you.. can you tell me if the disc is spinning? If its not then try this..
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. Like in my first post, 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 will solve the problem.

I want to play duplicate dvds on my ps2 but i am not able to do what should i do can i do it at home


  1. If you have backed up a game for ps2, you're going to need a mod chip or swap magic for your ps2 so it can read the disc, so first things first, BUY A MODIFICATION TOOL!!!
  2. 2You should try using Swap Magic, because it's the easiest, and you won't need to modify your PlayStation too much.
  3. 3But if you use SWAP MAGIC, you will also need a special mod chip, SLIDE TOOL, or a FLIP TOP COVER, you can learn more about those on the swapmagic website
  4. 4Read directions on the installation of mod chip, and swap magic before you do anything (you don't want to mess up, or else your ps2 won't work properly).
  5. 5Install your modchip/flip top cover/slide tool. (This is important, because it allows the disc to be removed and "swapped" without the PlayStation knowing).
  6. 6Follow directions that came with your swap magic discs, and you're basically ready to go!
  7. 7HOW TO USE SWAP MAGIC,Note you must have Swap magic 3.6 to boot on slimline ps2 and you need to do a none solder modding(no soldering)

Purchase a flip top (recommended). Let's assume you have the flip top and a copied ps2 game
  1. 1Now Insert the swap magic disc into the ps2,
  2. 2Press power on button until screens comes up.
    • With option that says load cd open the top cover of the flip top.
    • And take out the cd when it stops spinning.
  3. 3Now insert your Copied game and click Load CD.
  4. 4its that easy

It sounds like you are talking about a VHS tape look at the lower left corner of the tape as you are putting it into the vcr there should be a small square hole there with the tab broken off put a piece of scotch tape over this hole it will than let you record on the tape again

Ps3 60G


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.


....If you do have a tech background you can swap the lasers and that will solve your problem 99% of the time.

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.

Hope that helps,

Playstation 2 asks for a formating disc were do i find one?


Im guessing that your ps2 is not from america and all you have to do is buy a disk called SWAP MAGIC you can get it on ebay or just type "swap magic" in a search engine. It contains 2 disks 1 for CD games and 1 for DVD games, you dont have to modify your PS2 in any way. (apart from removing the front of the tray but you can put that back anytime)
