when i use the dvdloader to load Mercenaries, i need to use a high dvd toc disc, i use Devil May Cry(DMC), it has worked for me. Unfortunately, when DVDloader gives me this error message: Error Validating the Disc
these are the steps i am taking, what am i doing wrong?:
2. Swap; DVDLoader; X
3. X; v5.3 No Pin Option; X
4. Eject; DMC; X
5. Error Validating Disc
P.S. i have had success getting Mercenaries DVDR to load using slide tool and SMCD 3.0/Cdloader/CogSwap/DMC, but my PS2 has problems reading SMCD, and fliptop is much better than slide tool
ps2 v.5/6 fliptop smdvd v.2.0 DVDloader v.7all
Try waiting a few seconds longer before hitting the "X" in step 4.
its all good, i downloaded and burned cogswaploader to dvd, and used that in place of dvdloader, worked like a charm.
