i need your help see i burn the iso file to a dvd and i did the swap trick with the discs but my problem is that the burned disc i put in giving me a error tell me please how to do this the correct way. plus i burn the iso file in 4 x speed what i did wrong ?? note i have a ao1 model ps3.
There have been mixed reports on that really... quite some time ago (back in like 1.xx or 2.xx PS3 Firmware, can't recall when exactly) some users/regions reported it was blocked (the Swap Magic Disc ID was blacklisted by Sony) but then others said they could still load it fine. I would say by now in 3.66 OFW chances are good it's blacklisted for all, but if you have a disc handy it would still be worth it to try since it only takes a minute to find out.
Another idea may be to hunt down a Swap Magic ELF file that was hacked to work without a disc, and then find a PS3 app to launch that perhaps... you may even need to change it's ID if it still doesn't run that way. Personally I think the Open PS2 Loader I linked previously is the easier way to go, or heck, just get a used PS2 console and mod it to run backups.
being i can't see the disc to check it i'm unsure. but if you just made a 1:1 copy of it it will be fine. i used nero copy disc function and worked 100% except for dual layer games wouldn't play.. the speed at which you write to disc doesn't matter. i go max speed 8 or 16x i'm not sure and they work 100%
good luck and if you get it to work please let me know as i'm trying to get this to go now also. i'm on 3.60 ofw on a fat 60gig..
