After reading and googling for 8 hours, here are my questions:

1) Can one use HD Loader or HDAdvance to boot and swap and play backup games (not installed in HDD)?
In other words, can one use HDL/HDA as SwapMagic? Or does it require getting BOTH HDLoader AND SwapMagic?

2) Does SwapMagic method offers a higher compatbility (more playable games) than HDL/HDA?

3) Why common folks cannot create bootable disk (e.g. burn downloaded SwapMagic/HD Loader)? Is it because only "pressed" disk media are bootable, the ones that were specially made and recognized by S0ny?

4) Somone mentioned one can do "SwapMagic --> cd loader --> hd loader". Can one do "HD Loader --> cd loader --> burnt SwapMagic"?

I know... the questions may sound a bit odd.

I downloaded Tiger Woods 2005 on my hard drive using hd loader. The game loads fine and everything but it won't let me go to game modes. Does anyone have a solution or can tell me what I am doing wrong. I have it in mode 3.

kinda, not really. u cant install backups on the hdd using swapmagic. but u can install games on the hdd if u take it out, connect it to ur computer, and use a program like hdl_dumb to install the games. then u will be able to boot HDloader and select the games installed via pc.


2) Does SwapMagic method offers a higher compatbility (more playable games) than HDL/HDA?

no, i dont think so. it may have even less. using swap magic requires using the discs to play the games, wearing out the laser. plus u need a dvd-burner, they get scratched, etc....


3) Why common folks cannot create bootable disk (e.g. burn downloaded SwapMagic/HD Loader)? Is it because only "pressed" disk media are bootable, the ones that were specially made and recognized by S0ny?

yes


4) Somone mentioned one can do "SwapMagic --> cd loader --> hd loader". Can one do "HD Loader --> cd loader --> burnt SwapMagic"?

cd loader is a burnt program used to fix some games that dont work w/ swapmagic. hdloader only is able to install / play PS2 games. that means no psx, no apps ( this includes cd loader ) BUT actually, this may work. installing swapmagic (original) because it has the same "pressed" disc qualities as crazy taxi (a game). but u would still require a swap after booting the swapmagic from the hdloader and this would require either a fliptop or other swapping technique

Hey people, I'm new.

Anyways, after reading a lot, I installed Gran Turismo 4 on my hard drive using the software supplied here, I think it was HD Dump or something like that. Anyways, even though you said that installing a DVD9 game through the PC will work, I have tried it in every mode configuration possible and it just stops to a black screen after the first screen of text.

Any way to get around this?

Kinda ticking me off ;)
