    I've been attempting to install Free Mcboot for the last 2 days and I am having trouble with cogswap. I am using some memorex DVD+R discs however, I also have some verbatim DVD-R discs that weren't seeming to help. I am using Apache v1.1 to replace the SLUS_208.04 file with the payload and every attempt has succeed on that front. I come to an issue during the swap, from what I can tell I must be doing it correctly as the disc responds the way it should, it stops spinning, however instead of being greeted with the cogswap menu I am left starting at a black or screen, or I just get boot into the game.

    This is becoming frustrating as I feel I've been doing things correctly. I could be doing the swap wrong, but I've been doing this for hours and have been practicing a lot.

    Further Info:
    Model: SCPH - 75001// sticker code 5C
    8 MB official Sony branded Memory Card
    SanDisk Cruzer 16 GB USB 2.0 with Noobie Package
    Game: Demon Stone [SLUS_208.04]

    Not all games that have elf files will work. I had this problem years ago. The best bet is to either use a confirmed working game or ensure the LBA is correct after rebuilding the image. Here is a list of games that are known to work and not work. I'm afraid your game isn't on the list either way.

    Here are some more games that may work.

    @TnA maybe you can chime in.

    I've just seen the thread.
    Glad you got it done.

    Just for reference: Memorex are not a good choice for any console, especially PS2s! ;)
