Need Advice on Swap Magic, Newbie here. Help please!
Hey guys. So out of boredom, i've decided to revive my PS2 out of my closet. Knowing how stupid I am with games, of course I sold all of my PS2 games. So i've looked into Swap Magic, MCboot and all that methods. Swap Magic seems to have the best reviews and seems to be the most efficient way. Just bear with me here though, i don't know much about modding or anything like that. I've made the swap tool thing with a credit card, which works good. I've tried some other methods to play my CD's on my PS2 but they failed.
So I found Swap Magic 3.8 on amazon for about $16 plus shipping. I'm willing to buy it, but I just want to know the exact steps i have to take in order to do it and if i'll be able to do it. I have a fat ps2 (its very old, got it when they first were released) The model is SCPH - 39001. Now i've read things about only certain types of CD's or DVD's work. I found whatever was lying around in my house, which are Sony CD-R's as it says on the disk and on windows it says DVD-RW with 700 MB on them. Will Swap Magic work with these? ( I know 700 MB is not alot, but I usually play games less than this size actually) Now I've heard things about DVD-RW's that it will damage the laser, or it will flat out just not work, even with swap magic. I'm honestly not too sure how swap magic works, it would be great if someone explained it to me.
Yes I have also looked into the 007 Agent Under Fire Method too, but swap magic seems to be more efficient.
It'd be great if someone can educate me more about all of this and recommend whats best. I know these are stupid and common questions.
