    I have the SPCH-7501 NTSC PS1 and i have burnt a Japneese copy of Crash Bandicoot 3 and a USA copy of Abe's Exoddus. I am trying to do the swap disk trick to work but I get as far as the screen going black and I swap the burnt disc back and nothing happens.

    you might be miss timing the swap

    if you have the right ps1 (with the right port on the back, ie, parallel port on the back)
    get something like this
    use a spring to keep the lid closed button pressed

    the ps1 should
    read the disc
    stop
    then you swap
    load the back-up

    also
    this might be a nice read
    and also this
