ESR help –
Hi i am fairly new to this stuff and learning all the time. I read that you can boot back up games on dvd/cd using ESR, how do you do this? when i put a back up game in using ESR it says "invalid media in drive". I have an exploited memory card whith free mcboot and ulaunch and a few other elf files in there also which i have done through the help of people like yourself which is very much appreciated as now i use a 300gb hd and put my back ups on there. But i really would like to know how to boot back ups using ESR instead of swap magic which i currently use. Any help would be very much appreciated. THANKS!!!!!
You can not use a standard backup disc as made for SwapMagic or modchip use with ESR, because then the CDVD mechacon of the PS2 will refuse to read the disc. The ESR method relies on the CDVD mechacon allowing such access, because it mistakenly 'believes' the game backup to be a DVD-Video movie, which Sony allows using burned discs for.

But the ISO9660 filesystem still contains all the game files, and when the ESR driver is running the entire disc will appear (to the PS2 software reading it) as if it was still identical to the unpatched original.
You need to browse into the ESR subforum inside the Homebrew/Dev forum and download the ESR patcher to use with your backup ISOs, before burning your ESR backup game discs.
