Hello Ckain,

I just did a test of iso switching on parasite eve and it worked fine when i inserted the
correct disc the first time but, when i inserted a wrong disc it check the disc and it told
me it was the wrong disc. However when i tried to insert the correct disc it did not check the
disc again. Is this normal behavior?

Well no. It should detect the disc always when you press that "Switch ISO"

I wonder if this is a game related issue. How exactly you did it?

At least Chrono Cross does fine following scenario:

Start game with CD2 -> Select "New Game" -> Game asks to insert CD1 -> Press switch ISO but select some other disc than CD1 like CD2 again -> game reports CD error and prompts again to insert CD1 -> Press switch ISO and give now CD1 -> Game starts fine

Hello Ckain,


I waited for the change disc menu to come up then i hit ESC key,then selected switch iso and last i hit the continue.
I believe it is a game related issue because it was the only game i had to do:

To change to disc 2 you must press F9 (open cover) then Esc then Switch iso then "play button" then F10 (close cover)

All my other games i did not have to have to do it this way. If i did not do it that way it would not read the disc.

Hello Ckain,

I started up Final Fantasy 7 with disc 3 then hit new game waited for the change disc 1 menu then, hit switch iso
and i inserted disc 2 waited for it to check the disc then, it told me to change to disc 1 i hit switch iso and inserted
disc 1. The game booted up fine. However when i did the same with Parasite Eve the game would not recheck the
disc.
