    Here are a few links that may help with the older/riskier "swap" method of playing PS2 backups on a PS3:

    afaik, disc swap trick without special eject hardware modification will not work.

    The only way you can play PS2 games through burnt discs is by using a Cobra USB.

    There have been mixed reports on that really... quite some time ago (back in like 1.xx or 2.xx PS3 Firmware, can't recall when exactly) some users/regions reported it was blocked (the Swap Magic Disc ID was blacklisted by Sony) but then others said they could still load it fine. I would say by now in 3.66 OFW chances are good it's blacklisted for all, but if you have a disc handy it would still be worth it to try since it only takes a minute to find out.

    Another idea may be to hunt down a Swap Magic ELF file that was hacked to work without a disc, and then find a PS3 app to launch that perhaps... you may even need to change it's ID if it still doesn't run that way. Personally I think the Open PS2 Loader I linked previously is the easier way to go, or heck, just get a used PS2 console and mod it to run backups.

    It's been forever since I burned a PS2 image to disc, but we have an old PS2 CDR iMAGiNG & BURNiNG iNSTRUCTiONS guide for CD-based games and for DVD-based PS2 backups you can follow THESE guides or give THIS method a try.

    being i can't see the disc to check it i'm unsure. but if you just made a 1:1 copy of it it will be fine. i used nero copy disc function and worked 100% except for dual layer games wouldn't play.. the speed at which you write to disc doesn't matter. i go max speed 8 or 16x i'm not sure and they work 100%

    good luck and if you get it to work please let me know as i'm trying to get this to go now also. i'm on 3.60 ofw on a fat 60gig..
