 Post subject: Does Swap Magic work on FAT PS3 for import DISCS?

Every time I try to research this topic its always threads or videos for people trying to play back-up discs/bootlegs, ie. using a USB stick with their loaded games on it. ALL I want to do is play my physically owned retail ps2 import discs on my ps3 with swap magic. Is this possible? What is the easiest way to do this if you only want to play the discs and not emu, or backups?

It works great with the ps2 and slide tool but i would like to retire my ps2 and free up media space...


I also tried posting about a MODCHIP, must not be allowed to talk about? msg me if you have info.

If you have a 60 or 20gb model I would install cfw then you can play import ps1/ps2 original disc.

CFW doesn't change the region lock of the disc drive for PS1/2 discs. Of course with CFW you can just load images of any region on (almost) any PS3 model, but TC is specifically saying he wants to make things harder than necessary.

Does CFW lift the display mode restrictions?
IIRC NTSC PS3s deliberately block 50Hz-only games with an error message.

I have and use an Swap Magic CD/DVD on my old fat PS3 60gb and works great. But I have an removable top case for easy disc swap.
