[How To] Use Swap Magic 3.6 DVD (or CD) With Playstation 2 Slim To Play Backed Up Games Tutorial

547 ratings | 155132 views
Note: This is a brand new video in the name of vstPower. It is not an old GameDexterity video re-uploaded. :-) Swap Magic 3.6 DVD/CD is a boot disc for the fat and slim PS2. In essence what it does is it stops the laser from moving, so you can do a swap with your backed up game. If you are using a fat PS2, you need to have a slide card. If using a slim PS2, you need to block your door sensors. The easiest way of doing that is doing Versatile's "Tape, Straw, and Tissue mod". If you see the PS2 playlist on the vstPower channel, you can see the other PS2 tutorials to get up to speed so that you can become the PS2 king or queen starting today! If you have a modchip, no need to purchase or use swap magic. If your PS2 slim is a model number starting with SCPH-9XXXX, then you cannot use FMCB and you must use swap magic or a modchip. If you have further questions, leave a comment! - Versatile ------------------------------------------- *Links For the Tutorial* Buy swap magic 3.6 at http://www.estarland.com Find this wallpaper (see 2012 gallery): http://versatileninja.minus.com ------------------------------------------- **Stay Connected With Our Tutorials** Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/vstpower Become friends with us: http://www.facebook.com/GDVideos Versatile's Blog: http://www.versatile1.wordpress.com vstPower Wiki: http://www.vstpower.wikispaces.com vstPower Chat Room: http://vstpower.wikispaces.com/Chat Donate to vstPower: http://vstpower.wikispaces.com/Donate Project "KiP" Knowledge is Power: http://www.tinyurl.com/ProjectKiP vstPower Steam Group: http://steamcommunity.com//groups/vstPower *Tags* yt:stretch=16:9 Issues with video content?

That Swap Magic Gives me RSoD
Project Phoenix Media (16 days ago)
Try FMCB then
Ownz (3 months ago)
Man my ps2 just goes to the red thing everytime i put in swap magic help?
Ownz (3 months ago)
@Project Phoenix Media whats FMCB and ye my disc is legit. Thx for replying 😀
Project Phoenix Media (3 months ago)
Invalid PS2 disc or something else? This is legit swap magic? If you can get your hands on FMCB, then thats the best solution.
It works plays imported japanese!
stephen cooke (6 months ago)
Had swap magic working but since trying to use a cheat on it no games will play. I reset and Swap magic loads and dont have any cheats active but when i go to boot the game the screen goes black as in to load but then the laser stops and a noise like its trying to work happens and then nothing. Normal PS2 games work fine but when using Swap magic and copied disc its all stopped
Project Phoenix Media (6 months ago)
No idea, maybe sensors are not blocked properly or engaged?
Casper Jones (6 months ago)
@Project Phoenix Media sorry also any idea why doing it the disc way has stopped working
Casper Jones (6 months ago)
@Project Phoenix Media thanks for the reply, sorry im a noob to this but part 3 Copy a single ELF file into the "SWAPMAGIC" Folder (eg. OPNPS2LD.ELF) where do I get the ELF file from thanks
Project Phoenix Media (6 months ago)
Try using opl and usb and you can use cheats with latest opl

Will this Method and Disk Work For A Japanese Game? I'm Trying to Play Naruto Ultimate Ninja 4 and 5 and I don't want to waste money buying 50 disks and games
Project Phoenix Media (10 months ago)
It's better now to use FMCB, USB, and OPL 0.9.3, minimal investment. This assumes your have console that is scph-7XXXX series or lower
Tatiana Silva (1 year ago)
do you have to have the freemcboot to play with the swapmagic and play burned games?
Tatiana Silva (11 months ago)
thank you very much but i'll stick to the old methods because i dont know how to install FMCB.
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
No you can just use FMCB and not need swap magic (old method)
LIVRE (1 year ago)
you need to buy it? or you can burn the ISO on a DVD?
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
This is an older video, swap magic cannot be found anymore these days. Best to get FMCB memory card and use that to run homebrew apps like OPL 0.9.3 to play games from usb or network.
Henry Dao (1 year ago)
Hey I have a schp 70001 ps2 can that play a PAL region game or just I get the swap magic?
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
Yes it can, swap magic hard to find so get a modchip or fmcb.
can you use swap magic or any other types of exploits without modding your ps2 and without formatting your memory card?
thank you so much. i hate asking a no duh question.
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
You can buy a fmcb memory card and not worry about getting a swap magic.
RedBomberZer0 (1 year ago)
Do I have to do all this modding stuff. Can’t I just take the disc out and swap it
RedBomberZer0 (1 year ago)
Project Phoenix Media hmmm... ok cause I’m getting the swap magic 3.8 and the swap magic page says « No Mods Required » and that confuses me a bit with these videos
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
If you get a modchip yes. If you purchase a FMCB modded memory card, you can run homebrew apps and play games from usb or network which is a great alternative.
Guneet Choudhary (1 year ago)
Does it require every time to put the swap magic disc to play a burned game...?
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
This method yes, or get FMCB and play games from usb or network these days. If fat ps2, you can play from internal hard drive which is cool
Onyx Prime (1 year ago)
WIll this let me play pal games
SyphixZ (1 year ago)
I can play my ps2 burned game on the ps2,but it was so laggy and stuck at certain moment,what does it means?
JIN KAZAMA (1 year ago)
Good tutorial
Mario (1 year ago)
I uploaded a video like this 10 years ago and had over 400,000 views, youtube removed that shit cause of piracy lol
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
I know the feeling. I've had 2 or 3 youtube channels where I got 3 strikes on videos that other guys had. It wasn't fair and it was dumb stuff like wii jailbreaking tutorials
Ambiguous User (1 year ago)
is this to plat iso's on a pS2 and do I need swap magic and mcboot
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
These days just use mcboot if you are scph-7xxxx and lower.
FUTBOLL HD (1 year ago)
is this work on scph-90004 9c The swap-magic ?
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
Get a modchip or legit swap magic.
Wabblez (1 year ago)
does it work with ps1 burn games?, and can you play games from other regions on pal? (Japan,NTSC?)
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
If using psxlauncher, if ps2 is modded run ps1 games from usb using popstarter or get a modchip.
MegaEv (1 year ago)
Thanks for the help, but before opening my PS2 to do the straw tape and tissue, I have a quick question, does this works on model SCPH 90004?
MegaEv (1 year ago)
Project Phoenix Media No problem, thanks for answering, it doesn't work for me but it is a great tutorial anyways, and you helped too many people, thank you
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
It does BUT your model isn't compatible with fmcb, or you need modchip if you are looking at swapping burnt games, sorry.
Alec Hudson (1 year ago)
can you play imports like this?
Project Phoenix Media (1 year ago)
I did, playing JPN NTSC games on NTSC USA console, works great.
end3r (2 years ago)
Dude you said that it doesn't avoid your warranty. But if you open console you have to cut that sticker. Once you cut it your warranty is avoided.
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
If I said that then I misspoke.If you open the console it does void the warranty. Who buys a new PS2 these days anyway? They are all used...
Shingo dies in EndGame (2 years ago)
This is gonna be a stupid question but can I use backup Swap Magic disk for my PS2?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
Sorry, needs to be the original silver plated swap magic, not a burnt copy.
Joaquim Jesus (2 years ago)
i have the CD Swap Disk on my PS2 and i use Alcohol 120% for burn the ISO on DVD -R(is there a big diference between -R and +R?), but the burn CD isn't a valid disk :(
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
You need a modded ps2, maybe consider getting a hold of FMCB.
Andrew Noel (2 years ago)
Will it still work if I downloaded a copy of Swap Magic, burnt in onto a disk and use a free mcboot memory card to start up the disk?
Andrew Noel (2 years ago)
Sorry last question, if I do the 007 AUF method and swap the disk with an authentic copy of a foreign game, will it bypass the region lock?
Andrew Noel (2 years ago)
oh okay then cool. thanks man!
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
Sorry, downloaded copies of swap magic won't work. PS2 will see it as an invalid disc as it must be the silver pressed copy. Best case is look into the 007 AUF swap disc method, or buy a fmcb memory card (I have some for sale, email vstpower at gmail dot com for anyone who is interested)
Stephen Wheeldon (2 years ago)
HELLO does anyone know how top use codebreaker with a Game that is on a USB Stick
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
I know how to use the usb version of codebreaker with a game that is on USB, see this tutorial I made here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02pOWwRdRQ8
Dark Shadow (2 years ago)
If I have the swap magic disks 3.8 do I need the slide tools and v4 parts?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
Yes. Fat ps2 needs the slide tool, and slim ps2 needs blocked sensors. It's best to use your swap magic to make FMCB, so you don't have to do swapping any more!
Stu Meythaler (2 years ago)
i have a question, i bought a Japanese ps2 game but my console won't play it, would this swap magic fix the problem? thanks
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
I would say so but swap magic is impossible to find these days. Consider FMCB and OPL.
NickThaNoodle (2 years ago)
so all you need is swap magic and a backup disk and no freemcboot or opl?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
In this old method yes, but swap magic is so hard to find these days you are better off getting FMCB.
Caleb (2 years ago)
Can you play official games from other regions with this disc? Not just backups?
Caleb (2 years ago)
Alright thanks, i recently got fmcb for my scph-90001 with date code 8b (pretty lucky :p) so i could run the pal version of mgs2 for speedrunning purposes. Tried running the game with a swap method using the .elf file of swap magic and it wouldn't work. Guess I just need the disc, thanks for the reply :)
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
If you have swap magic you can play other regions yes.
ᖇᓎᙢᖻ (2 years ago)
is it really so simple just to put swap magic cd nd then ur burned game?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
Yes assuming you block all your door sensors. I went from swap magic to install fmcb to my memory card, now i play games from usb or from smb using opl 0.9.3.
DeeDyne (2 years ago)
+Project Phoenix Media I recently got the PAL Swap Magic 3.6 discs. Do I need to modify the ISO of the game in some way before burning it or is it just fine to create a 1:1 copy?
DeeDyne (2 years ago)
Thanks! :)
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
Create 1:1 copy and do the swap. I would prefer to make FMCB from swap magic and then play from network or usb, save your laser.
Naseer Hussain (2 years ago)
how can I upgrade my modded ps2 mcboot to latest version
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
I have a video on this, see example here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrvFDuGMUwM
Just Justi (2 years ago)
ok its good tutorial but how can i do it work on my ps2 i dont know how can it work i just done all the tutorials but got the same error in ps2 "insert a playstation or playstation 2 format disc" how i can i fix this?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
You can't just stick a copied game into a ps2 and have it read it. That's the error you get. You need to get a modchip, or better yet, get FMCB for ps2 models that are SCPH-7XXXX and lower.
Kamifox 1 (2 years ago)
I've done the paper, tape and straw mod and I'm using the PAL version of Swap Disc 3.6 on my PAL PS2. It does the PS2 logo, the disc stops spinning but nothing shows on-screen... Please answer this!
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
@Kamifox 1 If I copied and pasted that somewhere random, without context, man does that sound BAD!
Kamifox 1 (2 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media Right, I think it might be the straw again then, it went really soft and floppy after I squeezed it through (OH GOD LOL)
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
@Kamifox 1 Sensors not blocked properly, suggest you recheck it. If sensors are blocked, when lid is open disc will still spin. If it doesn't we know that one or more sensors got loose.
Kamifox 1 (2 years ago)
Project Phoenix Media It's not spinning while open even though I've blocked all of 3 of them.
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
So the disc spins now when all door sensors are properly blocked, correct?
edwin diaz (2 years ago)
can i just buy swap magic and burn games. without freemcboot or mod it.
edwin diaz (2 years ago)
Thanks dude.
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
I bought mine in 2007 from estarland.com but its hard to find online these days. If you can find it, burn games to DVD+R for slim, DVD-R for fat
edwin diaz (2 years ago)
where can i buy a good swap magic and what type of dics should I used.
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
Yes but get a legit swap magic.
Jaegar Ultima (2 years ago)
Only one problem Project Phoenix Media that I need your help on, i've burned two copies of Xenosaga Episode 1 on a duel layer verbatim d dvd+r dl and it's giving me the "not a valid ps2 disc" any help with this?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
@Justin Graziano I also agree with Justin's comment.
Justin Graziano (2 years ago)
I believe certain DL games can be converted to SL with special tools that remove the "fluff" and spacing, but not sure how this is done. Best to consult a gaming forum, not even sure if this will work on a majority of DL games. Might be better off to just buy the DL games, probably more work then its worth to get them working on Swap Magic.
Jaegar Ultima (2 years ago)
@Justin Graziano that sucks, because the games I really want to play are Dual Layer
Justin Graziano (2 years ago)
You can't play dual layer games with Swap Magic. Single Layer only.
Jaegar Ultima (2 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media It's 3.6 and you're saying that I can't use dvd+r dl? I'll need a dvd5 format to play burned dl ps2 games?

Bryce Seaborn (2 years ago)
Do i Need FreeMcboot for this to work or can i just buy swap magic and do the censors?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
You can buy swap magic and do the sensors. For anyone else who is interested, I do sell FMCB memory cards as well.
Joel Atkinson (3 years ago)
I have Swap Magic 3.8 and cannot get the game to load PAL games that I bought straight from the UK. The menu starts up and I swap the discs, then select Normal>NTSC for the video format, and from there it goes to a black screen, and the game disc will slowly spin. I can't figure out why the game won't load, can someone help me??
Joel Atkinson (3 years ago)
+Project Phoenix Media yes I have an NTSC tv. I tried selecting PAL for one of my games and it worked, that game being from the UK. The others that I had been trying were actually made in Germany, idk if that makes a difference, but I'm going to try PAL video format on them too, hopefully it'll work. Thanks!
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
Using a NTSC or PAL TV? What if you select PAL selection?

Hello friend this Swap Magic 3.6 DVD him to get saved games .......? Because Ps2 only takes Original games and to handle recorded games has Faze this Magic Swap 3.6 ......?
Project Phoenix Media (2 years ago)
@xcod110 No, never heard of that before. But if you are looking for alternatives, look into the ps2 007 agent under fire disc swap method.

+Project Phoenix Media Hello. Phoenix Media I have a quick question can you use a PS1 game to swap into the ulaunchelf disc.

I'm having a little problem. I have 3.8 of Swapmagic and I burned the spongebob Squarepants Movie and it's very buggy. Any Ideas? Please?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Alejandro Sandoval How about playing the game from hard drive and see if that helps?
boge (3 years ago)
Do you need FreeMcboot to do the Swap Magic trick?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Gordon Velichkovski Buy it, but they are impossible to find these days. Best to make FMCB using 007 tutorial or buy premodded memory card: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8
boge (3 years ago)
+Project Phoenix Media Can i burn a Swap Magic disc or do i have to buy one?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Gordon Velichkovski This video was made before I got into FMCB. If you have swap magic, you can use it to install FMCB or just play backed up discs straight up.
Alejandro Sandoval (3 years ago)
Will Swapmagic 3.8 work?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Alejandro Sandoval Yes but 3.8 is known to be buggy at times.

what's the difference between the CD version in the DVD version
Bruce S (3 years ago)
You can find it on Amazon bro. Just ordered 3.6
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Keoni Marques CD is for booting cd based ps2 games, and DVD is for dvd based PS2 games. Swap magic is hard to find these days, suggest look into 007 method instead to make your own FMCB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8
Majora (3 years ago)
Dude thanks for this vid, Just got an ass-load of old retro stuff, and a PS2 happened to be in the pile with a TON of burned game's. Had no clue how to run them until i decided to youtube the Magicdisc3 dvd driver disc and found this vid. Thanks again homie!

I finally modded my PS2!!!!!

+Alejandro Sandoval Good job!
Tommi Gui (3 years ago)
Why my console won't read my memory card if i'm using a burned dvd make by myself? I can play the game but i can't save it. Any help?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Tommi Gui If you have a modded console to begin with, then swap magic isn't needed.
Tommi Gui (3 years ago)
Forgot to mention this but, I didn't do any of your swap magic tricks. Why do we need one in the 1st place if the game works just fine?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Tommi Gui It should save to your memory card like regular, try a different memory card.
Andrew Nguyen (3 years ago)
I'm just a little lost with all these tutorials, do I need a genuine Sony memory card to do this? I read an amazon review that I need one. Also, do I need free mcboot to play burned games? I already did the paper mod. Thanks a bunch
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
@Andrew Nguyen You want the normal edition.
Andrew Nguyen (3 years ago)
and one last question, regarding that, does it matter whether or not it's a greatest hits edition?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Andrew Nguyen Correct, or do the 007 agent under fire method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8
Andrew Nguyen (3 years ago)
+Project Phoenix Media okay thanks. I might do esr, and I have a Max 32mb card if that works. other things I'll need to install freemc will be swapm and a UL elf disc?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Andrew Nguyen Thanks for the questions, I love it. As long as the memory card has magicgate on it, it should work. I use Nyko all the time, no issues. FMCB will allow you to play burned games if it is a ps2 slim and the game iso is patched with ESR patcher before burning to disc. To be honest, I recommend gamers to use USB or play thru the network, its better performance and it doesn't destroy the laser!
Alejandro Sandoval (3 years ago)
Do I have to mod it?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
@Learn To Quill Sure that is one method, or look into 007: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8
Alejandro Sandoval (3 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media Ok. I tried so many times though. It's hard. 😓
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Alejandro Sandoval Yes if you are doing this method
DoubleTroubleGaming (3 years ago)
DVD-RW or DVD-R? And do you just put the ISO on the disk or the files in the ISO?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+DoubleTroubleGaming Yes if you can find a legit copy of swap magic.
DoubleTroubleGaming (3 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media Ok I have a 90001 PS2 and it'll work with Swap Magic?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+DoubleTroubleGaming Use DVD+R for slim PS2 actually. The ISO is to be burnt. If you are looking to make FMCB, use the 007 tutorial instead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8
ZTPhill (3 years ago)
Does my copy of swap magic have to be pal if my ps2 is pal

Can you use swap magic to play ps1 backups????
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+trisin james no
wth12 (3 years ago)
SwapMagic uses it own disk? I thought you can burn swapmagic .iso on some of your blank cd-s... Now I saw that swapmagic disk tricks ps2 to think it is a ps2 actual game... MY QUESTION is: Why we don't use the same trick to play backups, sure if it is not disk itself in swapmagic's case...?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
@Sanchee Do you have a legit copy of swap magic to begin with?
wth12 (3 years ago)
+Project Phoenix Media Can I use swapmagic.elf? Cuz, you said in video that you must remove fmcb card for game to start normaly... ?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Sanchee Swap magic needs to be a silver disc factory pressed copy. If you try to find one from the internet and burn to a dvd-r or dvd+r, your PS2 will say it is an invalid disc format and show you a red screen.
Crazy BoY (3 years ago)
I have not Swap Magic
Crazy BoY (3 years ago)
thanks :)

+Crazy Boy If you have fat ps2 and internal hard drive, you can try FHDB. If you have ps2 slim, you can buy fmcb memory card, or try to make your own using this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8

+Kiritsugu Emiya If you can find swap magic, then yes. Or if you can get a hand on FMCB memory card, you can play the game from usb or over the network.
Mike Gorf (3 years ago)
all I need are those disks?
Alejandro Sandoval (3 years ago)
Do I have to do that tape/straw/tissue MOD? I'm scared and lazy to do it. Cause my PS2 slim is also my friend's. He just wanted me to have it in my house cause he is getting an XBOX ONE. But anyway, Do I have to do that tissue/tape/straw MOD? In order to do it?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
@Alejandro Sandoval Doing the tape/straw/tissue mod by itself is not enough. When you insert the burned dvd-r for ps2 game, your PS2 will give you a red screen error. If you had FMCB, you can patch the .iso with ESR patcher, and the game will work like in the following video here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9c-201ilSbM The cheapest way to get FMCB is do the 007 AUF disk swap as shown in this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8
Alejandro Sandoval (3 years ago)
For the Burned DVD-R for ps2 games?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
+Alejandro Sandoval The only time you want to do this mod is if you have swap magic or FMCB and you think you are going to play ps1 games or do the 007 agent under fire disc swap mod. If you are not going to do any of those things, then you do not need to do this tape/straw/tissue mod. Remember, still need a softmod if you want to mod your ps2.

+Joshua Edradan Best to get PAL games or your games will be off center. Swap magic copy never works, and its impossible to find a legit copy anyway. See the 007 agent under fire method to make your own fmcb: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8

You cannot burn swap magic. You will understand why in the video I linked before. The real retail version of swap magic has jagged lines, not circular so there is no way a regular PC can even rip it.

Jota Aniki (4 years ago)
Im using that same version and i got a question: Im from Europe so i use a PAL version and i was wondering if this alows you to play official NTSC games on my ps2?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@Jota Aniki It works but it will be off centered.
Shah Faisal (4 years ago)
Hey!! My ps2 is modded as in I can play pirated games! Do I still need swap magic or can I directly go to the later steps?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@Faisal TV Later steps, good luck.

Hey I have a ps2 model scph 9xxxx and my code is 2D (I think) Will I be able to mod it ?
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
Well, I have installed it on sony and nyko 8mb cards, no issues.
Shah Faisal (3 years ago)
Hey! Does freemcboot require original ps2 memory cards???
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
Yes it will work, its your last option besides buying a cheap used ps2 slim or fat ps2
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
Best way is get FMCB, see this video to learn how to install FMCB, and let's makes sure you got a compatible unit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8EoU5E9R8g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp1uvnN-2z8
Project Phoenix Media (3 years ago)
Swap magic you cannot find anymore, its hard to buy. The alternative is look into FMCB, if you have a compatible ps2 model. See this video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8EoU5E9R8g I do have memory cards premodded with fmcb for those who are interested to buy one. Send inquiry to vstpower at gmail dot com if interested.

Hello! I recently bought a PS2 which was already modded, it's also slim btw. So, as I figured out from your video, I don't need swap magic, right? Anyway, I felt nostalgic, downloaded some sega sonic games I once had and tried to use pgen, but I don't know how to burn those! I mean I got one .elf file and two rom files, as much as I understood from another tutorial, I need to make a folder called "roms", put them in and simply burn everything to a DVD or a CD. Is that way OK or am I missing something? I mean I got one DVD left and I'm too lazy to head to the store, so I don't wanna mess it up :D I'm looking forward to your answer, thanks :)
Marko Mavrinac (4 years ago)
Ok, I will try it and let you know what happens. Thanks :)
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@Marko Mavrinac Don't burn any roms to cd. Can you boot a ulaunchelf cd or dvd disc? Get them from sksapps.com. If you can run ulaunchelf, then you can run the emulators from a usb thumb drive.

One question man with fmcb you can play craked games (copy) reply thx
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@EagleS Eye Yes from usb or over network.
rosavampire (4 years ago)
a few questions here 1: just to be safe after i do the tape/tissue mod and get swap magic i am then able to play burned games and imported games? 2:will a regular old memory card work for those games 3:if all else fails and i cant play burned disk/imported games what do i need? and i dont want to use a mod chip because it aint worth the cost of my ps2
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@rosavampire I do sell fmcb memory cards. If interested, email me at vstpower at gmail.com
rosavampire (4 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media thx if ill see what i can do might have to get fmcb though
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@rosavampire 1) Yes. Swap magic hard to find now, best to get FMCB. Find someone or watch my 007 agent under fire video to make your own. I also sell memory cards with FMCB if really needed. 2) Yes. 3) FMCB is the answer. Play from usb, or play from disc if have slim ps2.

DWMCrasher98 (4 years ago)
Hey dude I try putting on a burned ps2 game on SM 3 PLUS but it tells me not a valid ps2 disc. This causes the same problems even with original ps2 games! Any help appreciated!
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
Swap magic 3.8? Perhaps laser is degrading.
DWMCrasher98 (4 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media well you see I have a 9000x series ps2. Thanks anyways I was able to fix this. But I have a new problem: Up until 2 days ago swap magic would work but it now does some things that shouldn't. When bootin swap magic the ps2 sometimes brings me to the browse menu 2)games become really slow while loading sometimes (causing frame rate issues, skips or even rarely freezes) While booting a game it brings me to a black screen and nothing happens. Sometimes the games work fine but they usually have these problems. Any idea of what I can do?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@DWMCrasher98 How about install fmcb and then don't worry?
CaptainOfFun22 (4 years ago)
Can you play modded games? I got a ps2 version SCPH-90002.
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@CaptainOfFun22 Sorry, let me clarify. You need a modchip or swap magic. FMCB won't work on your system.
kitkat299 (4 years ago)
Hey I'm having a problem with Swap Magic and I would really appreciate your help. So i just bought Swap Magic 3.8 along with the "official" tools. After some painful hours, I installed them all but when it comes to swapping the discs I run into some problems. When I load my swap magic disc it works fine, however when I switch it with my dvd-r the dvd spins at a much slower rate then it should. When it spins it makes this weird scratching sound like the ps2 is struggling to read it. I tried some other methods such as also switching the swap magic disc with an official ps2 game and the same behaviour occurred. When I placed the game into my ps2 without swap magic it worked just fine. Not like it would make a difference,but I even tried swapping discs by using a ps2 game and my dvd-r by selecting "browser" and letting it read my ps2 game, then switching out for the dvd-r. Once I switched the discs, the dvd made the same weird scratching sound. So i'm not really sure if its my swap magic disc or the problem is my ps2. Could I have installed the tools incorrectly? Help would be much appreciated! Thank you!

@kitkat299 What are the official tools exactly? How about DVD+R?

Kadis Winchester (4 years ago)
Do I need a memorycard for that
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@Kadis Winchester Only for FMCB.
TheUrashime (4 years ago)
Would the DVD rom version work?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
If you want to save some money, look into the 007 agent under fire disc swap magic method. I also sell ps2 memory cards preloaded with FMCB as another option, and it is definitely cheaper than buying swap magic 3.8. If you get the DVD version disc only, then thats fine too.
TheUrashime (4 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media Right now i can only find 3.8 copys online to purchase...So i have two options: Swap Magic Coder v3.8 ( http://www.amazon.com/Swap-Magic-Coder-2-Disc-Slide/dp/B001BZCECU/ref=pd_sim_misc_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=1GXMQRTACBJS155KR6DC ) or this -reviews says this one is actually 3.8 - (http://www.amazon.com/Swap-Magic-NTSC-Version-Disc/dp/B00DDZFB62/ref=pd_sim_t_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=1VH2V3XM6SX34P3YZAZD) - Which one do you recommend?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
Yes if it is a legit copy.
J0e Bl0w (4 years ago)
I've had swap magic & about 30 different copied games for years. This video makes me wanna breakout the old ps2 & slider tool lol!

@J Holiday Only 30 eh? I just checked my ps2 library and I have about 60 games maybe? Then I check my ps1 library, and its like another 30 games. Man, I only beat about 20% of them lol

Aldred yap (4 years ago)
I have the fat ps2 and i've been wondering how to play burned ps1 games on the ps2. This is what i have.... HAVES: A lot of blank cd roms 40+ count (700mb 80 mins kind) usb drive 8gb ps2 and 1 memory cards (8mb) a pc that can burn ps1 and 2 games an untouched/non modded ps2 fat. DONT HAVES: ps2 networking  ps2 hard drive magic swap disc and tools. All i want to have is my fat ps2 running on burned ps1 discs. Idk which booters are the best method. I also watched your playlist and i just don't know which is the most convenient of all booters without any gameplay errors or something Any suggestions on my current state? These are the only things i have in my disposal.

Email me at [email protected] and we can discuss.
Aldred yap (4 years ago)
how much would it be for the install service?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
What is your method to install FMCB? See the ps2 playlist and check out the 007 agent under fire video is the lowest, cheapest way if you don't know anybody who does PS2 modding. I do offer a FMCB install service for small fee, but only USA residents.
TheOneTrueBeard (4 years ago)
Hey man. Does this work with burned ps1 games on playing on ps2? Just wondering if I need to buy 2 systems or if the disc works for both. If you could try it I'd be grateful. Thanks!
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@TheOneTrueBeard No, but see the PS2 playlist. I have one method using FMCB to boot psxlauncher that allows us to play backed up PSX games via disc. I have another tutorial showing you how to play ps1 games from usb.
AEGISED25 (4 years ago)
Hello and good morning from Mexico, if i have a clean/NO modded PS2 Slim, to play PS2 burnedgames i can use the Swap magic & Magic tools (or your Tape, Straw)  Combo??  Like an Example: Using original Gameshark PS1 codes on a PS1 NO MODdED  (yep years ago lol), run, install/save cheat codes on memory card, then select game, swap to game CD, start and done!! i have a US PS2 Slim SCPH 70012 modded (matrix chip) then i can play my PS2 burnedgames with no boot etc.. right?? Thanks for your videos tutorials, you r the best  =)
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
Give it a try. PS2 is so old, its rough on HDTV. That is why I keep an old CRT TV around for old school gaming. lol
AEGISED25 (4 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media damm sorry, i forgot the "r" :   Xploder to play HDTV on PS2. i only have the HDMI for PS3 (plus 2 more for my DVD and Blu ray) and the classic RGB from PS1 and PS2 (but playing them on HDTV looks like blur and less Sharp on my TV) mmm... maybe if i get a S-video/component cable do the trick.
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@AEGISED25 Not sure what Xplode is exactly. For HDTV, just use your RCA cables???
AEGISED25 (4 years ago)
@Project Phoenix Media ok thanks  it's nice to know some other tricks to play again our favorite PS2 games  =) by the way could you please do a tutorial (when u have the time of course) about, how to play our Ps2 on HDTV?? includin Xplode settings and (i don't know if it's truth), install Xplode in FMCB. Thanks again for your videos and have a nice weekend  =) 
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@AEGISED25 If you have a modded ps2, you can play any burned games yes.
KayIsidro (4 years ago)
Hey bro, does it need to be modded? or just do the tape/straw and swap magic and backup games. in short all I need are these: -Tape/Straw -SwapMagic 3.6 -backup games is that all? 
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@villalobosced That is swap magic dvd.
KayIsidro (4 years ago)
@villalobosced Hey Men, One question what kind of disc is the swap magic there? CD or DVD?
KayIsidro (4 years ago)
Thanks my men. keep up the good work
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@villalobosced Correct, or you can skip swap magic and get FMCB or make your own FMCB using my 007 agent under fire disc swap tutorial. See ps2 playlist for more details!

ThePrinzKassad (4 years ago)
Problem! SCPH-70004 PS2 silver slim (V12 I think, because I can install an IDE--Bus) Swap Magic Coder 3.8 => boot => normal => PAL and before I start booting, I insertet a copy of Ratchet & Clank 3. Now the Problem, the game doesn't boot! I get thrown back to the browser and then I see a Red Screen :( Interesting, when I press X to load the copy, the laser start scanning at the beginning of the disk (Checking Signature?) ... How can I fix it? Did I burned the game wrong? I used an .iso and burned it with IMGburn.
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@ThePrinzKassad Do other games work ok with Swap Magic 3.8? I heard 3.8 is not perfect, luckily I have 3.6.
Sub-Zero (4 years ago)
I just ordered one of these, hopefully I can play PAL games on my console with this. I accidentally ordered a PAL version of urban chaos (great fucking game btw). Also I mostly got this this for backups, of course.

You can get Free McBoot on most SCPH-9XXXX models. The models with date code 0B (I think) and BIOS 2.30 will not work.
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@ENunn Productions Inc. You are correct. There is a certain date code that FMCB will not work on the newer models. The gotcha is....if you get a new PS2 today from the store, it won't be compatible. Thank heavens for used console market. xD

Robert Lintescu (4 years ago)
Hello! I don't have from where to buy the original Swap Magic. Can i just download it, burn it and use it?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@Robert Lintescu Sorry, it doesn't work like that at all. Either buy it from a site like www.estarland.com, or find a friend or somehow who can help make FMCB with their modded PS2. Another alternative is buy 007 agent under fire and go on youtube and learn about making the special swap disc method so you can make your own exploit.
Cedrick Cabelin (4 years ago)
Can this also works for an unmodded ps2?
Project Phoenix Media (4 years ago)
@Cedrick Cabelin Not quite, still need a way to boot this.

Hey dude my brother bought a pes 2014 ps2 but its PAL and we have a NTSC console.What do you suggest I do so he can play the game? Thx

Sorry, the game isn't in NTSC, play it on your PS2 and it will be off center. Not sure if its worth it.

That's to both questions right

Yes.
