Please bear with me because I'm still trying to get a handle on what everything does. I'm trying to figure out what each of the below programs do and how you would use them, here is the list...
CDLoader - ?
CogSwapLoader - ?
HDLoader - Take a game, save it to the HD. Load game from HD
HDAdvance - New version of HDLoader. Same idea.
PS2Loader - ?
DMS S3 HDD Format Utility - like fdisk for ps2
ExecFTP - ftp server
Faplink Server - ftp .iso files from your computer to the ps2 hd
I know that cdloader and cogswaploader info is available off the swapmagicfix web site, but I'm a little confused. I applied ar max mc, and here are the programs on the menu. I'm confused because it boot up the menu, but now if I want to play a backed up or import game, which option would one choose? Either way, I think it would help a ton of people out who have no idea what is out there and how it works!
Thanks in advance!
cdloader is used to boot games via the swap method, it also fixes problem games that are booted this way.
CogSwapLoader is used to boot games also, but it's very tiny, and is made to be used as the boot.elf for an independence exploit.
I've never heard of ps2loader...maybe you are thinking of ps2link. this lets you execute elfs on your ps2 from your computer, provided they are networked together.
ps2loader may be ps2link, not sure. I tried to execute it and all it did was make the screen go blank.
Thanks for the info on the cdloader and cogswap. i had the feeling that you had to pull the disc out, but not 100% sure. If i'm not mistaken, if you hit the eject button on a dvd, you can swap it that way?
I'm so excited right now... I just backed up stuntman to the HD and it works perfectly. I hated that game because it took ~10 to 30 seconds to replay a stunt... ahhhh... (smiling ear to ear)
Cdloader = Is in laymans terms a menu system to do multiple games on a single disc.

PS2Loader = is a swap disc I believe for playing backed up CD/DVD games from one disc instead of the two swapdisc discs method.
So to answer your question you would select ps2loader then eject it by some means and insert your backed up game.
ps2loader... I did a little more research and it looks like it use to be the old faplink. I could be wrong, but some of the config docs talk about ps2loader. Interesting...
I've also found that "cdloader" for putting multi backups on a single dvd, uses ps2load.elf, dunno if maybe your getting confused.
