    ok, so i got my swap magic disks w/ flip top cover a few days ago. I perfectly installed the flip top and put the dvd swap magic in the ps2 slim. It loaded fine and i played my backup of KH 2.

    yesterday, i made backups of all the rest of my games. so i put my dvd swap magic in the systems, turn it on, and it doesnt work.
    what happened is it loads up and i get the ps2 logo, then theres nothing. When i look at the disk, it slows down, then speeds back up, slows down, speeds back up, and on and on.
    i have gotten it to work by turning it off, cleaning it, trying it again, over and over.... but it only works once and then i just have to keep retrying it til it works.

    so, what is the problem? did i get a bad disk? i have already contacted the place i got it from (vpgames.com)..... i have tried cleaning the disk, and my system works perfectly!
