I'm using the fat ps2 with swap magic, and flip top and i've managed to boot up Swap magic correctly, but the problem is the back-up. I'm trying to play Valkyrie Profile 2, and the game will load, but every two seconds it's says "reading disc", and a lot of the dialog skips.
I used a Memorex 16x+r to burn, with Imgburn. It there something wrong with the brand of disc, or was the iso burned incorrectly?
I also tried burning Codebreaker iso 9.2, and that won't even boot... just a black screen. The things is all of these disc work on my Pcsx2. I'm wasting a lot of discs... I'm really frustrated.
For one, I would suggest using Open PS2 Loader for booting games instead of burning disc after disc. It just makes sense to load the game (which works in that loader via network, usb and HDD) without discs and bypass any chance of a bad burn.
Probably a dumb question, but since you posted in the PS2 DVDRip section and mentioned above it's skipping a lot of dialogue... are you sure the back-up is a 1:1 copy versus a rip of the game?
I seem to have figured out the problem. I was using cheap Memorex dvds... hence the skipping. I've seemed to have eliminated all the skipping on my burn, except the aforementioned VP, which still keeps loading, constantly.
off-topic: Is there still no way to use a codebreaker 9 back-up with Swap Magic?
