Hey everyone, I have been trying to do the methods stated in both of these topics for my v12 slim PS2:
However, I have been having a few probems...
1) I start action replay, go to media player, load cdloader.elf from a memory stick, and get to the main screen. In the bottom left corner it says ps2 cd because it detected action replay, it stops spinning, I take it out and put in the cogswaploader cd burnt from a bin and cue made with IC3, and hit X...and then, right away, the outlined red star galaxy screen of doom...
NOTE: I have also tried downloading the bin and cue from http://www.swapmagicfix.com/ of cogswaploader, and the same thing happened but it took a while to get to the outlined red galaxy star screen of doom.
2) Everything works fine, I load cdloader, press triangle to put back the laser, put in an original ps2 dvd game, press triangle to reset the laser, it detects ps2 dvd in the bottom left, and then i hit x...up comes a screen that says "ERROR VALIDATING THE DISC," or something to that effect. I have tried this with all the following games:
-Madden NFL 2005
-DDR Max 2
-Star Wars Battlefront 2
-Call of Duty: Finest Hour
-SSX On Tour
I always burn things on the lowest speed that Nero Burning Rom 7 offers, 4x. I've tried 3 different kinds of media; Fujifilm, Optimum, and Memorex. I have a v12 slim black ps2 with a paper mod I made myself, plays with the top open perfectly.
If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong, how I could possibly fix it, or any other possible way to load games in a way similar to those, please let me know. Thank you for your help.
