Question Swap Magic 3.3 Flip top v12 issues loading

sponsored links

I just recently bought swap magic 3.3 and a flip top for my version 12 PS2. At first the disks worked and I got to the swap magic screen. Well I burnt GTA San Andreas using the Star Wars Battlefront tutorial and loaded it up. WHen it started loading it was very slow and jumpy. And when I pushed a button, it froze completely. I thought I'd try reburning it on a Memorex DVD+RW so that I wouldn't keep wasting good media. But when I try to load the swap magic disks the screen just goes black and it never gets to a point where I can swap the disks. Basically, I can't get the swap magic disks to work anymore. I've read through the forums for hours and I see that other people have had the same problems but never really read how to "fix" this problem. I'd actually like to use the memory card exploit, but without the disks working, I don't know that it is possible? All original games still work DVD and CD but the Swap magic won't load. Just spins for a long time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Firstlym DVD+RW never works - it has to be CD-R (if it'll fit) or preferably DVD-R, thats all. Secondly, Memorex aren't very good for backups apparently, Fuji, Verbatim, Datasafe and even Unbranded media will have higher success rates. Remember to burn at LOW speeds (i burn at 2X and all my games are fine). Quite a few people are having trouble with San Andreas, not sure what's going on there.

Okay, well besides the media, I still can't use the swapmagic CDs at all. When I turn on the PS2 with either of the swapmagic 3.3 cds, the screen gives the PS2 logo and then just reads the disk forever. Just a black screen. This is the real issue.
