    I downloaded NBA 2k10 US for my PS2 and burned it into a DVD 4x speed. When I play it the game always freezes after I chose my team that I want to play with and it goes to the loading screen it doesn't really freeze but it loads forever. By the way I am using Swap Magic 2.0.

    swap magic 3.8 is out now

    that may be the problem (better compatibility in the new versions)

    yea, the TOC size of swap magic 2.0 is smaller than that of some games, and swap magic 3.8 fixed that up [​IMG] ... on second thought, why not use FMCB and ESR?

    Wait what? What do you mean by TOC? And FMCB and ESR...

    EDIT: With FMBC isn't that only for homebrew? And with ESR do I need to patch the games?

    toc = table of contents, its basically the size of the disc.

    you should be able to run fmcb installer through swap magic to install on your mem card. you do need to patch with esr
