- i have a version 1 ps2 non modded
- just recently replaced the laser
- USB loader comes later in the post
So first i bought a copy of Swap magic 3.8 coder and i got the dvd and cd version. Both of them start up fine except when i try to load a backup. The first game i tried was mgs 3 substance that i know works because i tried it before on a different modded ps2.
So i slide carded it, did the procedure and what not and it gave me the black Screen of death. However the game did start up once, so i restarted the system to see if it would work if i tried again...it didn't work. So i tried final fantasy 10 and 10-2 both with the same result
So then i tried the cd version of swap magic and tried the refreshing toc method. every time i tried loading the backup, i would be kicked out to the browser. then i tried using a cd backup...this worked! I've learned that the cd backups run no problem.
So then after all this i figured i would try using USB advanced. it booted up fine detected my harddrive and stuff. went on my computer and formatted it using the USBExtreme wininst program. Installed some games. Took it to my ps2 and the games were all listed there. But when i tried loading the game, it would give me the same Bsod as Swap magic.
So i have come here for help after searching endlessly on the interwebs. PLEASE HELP ME!
