    Well i got swap magic for christmas i burned a game installed the flip top cover for my ps2 slim and i tried my game and it worked pretty well actually. Soon though about half hour into the game my ps2 made a really bad clicking noise like the cd was being hit by something while spinning. I shut it off but now my ps2 wont read the swap magic disk it goes up to the ps2 part but then it just stays in black screens any help.?

    i am actually using the sony brand 8mb card an it is working now but 50 percent of the time and sometimes the sound gets messed up in the game and i also get slow downs

    EDIT: Now it is not working at all i tried a bunch of tests and here is what hap

    No matter what game it says the disk is not there and i have to boot it from the browser menu

    If i push down the top of the cover the game starts reading

    Guitar Hero Retail Version works after i pushed it down for it to read

    Swap Magic DVD version did not work at all now i did see though from the corner of the flip top cover the game spins for a bit then stops when it stops my ps2 says to insert a ps2 disk.

    Also the one time my swap magic did work i put in the game and it said that the ps2 disk is invalid or the disk is not a valid ps2 game but the same game worked earlier today.

    Please guys i really need help.

    Try putting something heavy on the flip top lid. About 1 KG might help.

    I'm just guessing here but try deleting your system config on your memory card and try again.
