Frustrating Swap Magic Problems
First I'd just like to state that I am a complete newbie when it comes to Swap Magic and ps2 backups.
Now that we have that cleared up,
The Problem: Whenever I try to play a back up game, CD or DVD, I almost always get a pink border on the top and left hand of my screen. The discs do not run and I am left frustrated. I have tried read as many Swap Magic help topics there are but I have not found anyone that was having the same problem.
Specifications: My ps2 is SCPH 39001, version 7 I believe. I am using Swap Magic DVD Version 2.0 USA Build and Swap Magic 3.0 CD Version 3.2 USA Build. I have tried backing up, and playing, games on DVD+R, CD-R and also DVD+RW discs (I have tried a numerous ammount of different media including Sony, Maxell, TDK). I had bought some DVD-R discs but it seems that my dvd driver does not support them.
I have tried numerous games and I always get the pink border. The games I had tried were not listed on the swapmagicfix site. Also I have tried the TOC method, I'm pretty sure that's what it's called, where you eject the Swap Magic CD disc and put in a original ps2 game etc.
I am sorry if there is some simple answe I have missed. And if I have wasted anyone's time but this is a frustrating problem for me and any help or advice will be very appreciated.
