    Swap Magic doesn't read anything.

    If you mean, can your PS2 play DVD+RW backups, I don't know. It heavily depends on your PS2 version, the Slimlines mostly run DVD-Rs flawlessy.

    If you are that curious, you can try to see if your PS2 can run it.

    Well then , there is your answer. You tried a game it didn't work properly on a +rw , so there you go. Your ps2 can't play games on a rw properly.

    As for the swap magic comment , they are correct , swap magic doesn't read anything , it's a disc , it merely boots the games , the ps2 reads them. Swap magic has nothing to do with whether the ps2 read on dvd+rw or not. They are probably just being picky though or trying to be funny as most can see exactly what you meant by can the swap magic read it.

    Quick solution, uses DVD-Rs instead.

    they seem to cost a lot and if i got +RW to work i could just rerecord it on the same disk

    If anything, DVD+RWs are more expensive.

    RWs run like shit, if they even load up at all. Just stick to regular DVD-Rs.
