i have no idea what model your saturn is...what shape are the power and reset buttons...oval? or circular? oval buttons mean model 1 saturns and circular is model 2 (however, there are some saturn's that are model 1 but have model 2 casing)

Also, are you doing a double swap or a single swap? Double swap is generally the preferred method, as it results in correct handling of CD audio and may prevent some in-game lockup problems. If you're getting the problem with the double swap, it probably means that you're doing the first swap correctly, but the second swap too late. If it's with a single swap, you're probably doing the swap too late, but I'm not an expert on the single swap. It's also possible that this results from a bad burn, but I think the late swap is more likely.

Please tell us what model you have so we can help. I only do the double swap. (In breaif) Boot with Cdr, switch before logo assembles, saturn reads outside of real, goes to middle again, moves slightly out then swap in cdr. Saturn goes to black screen and boots cdr. You be happy :)

i have a model one, and i base my swap solely on the access light. First, insert the CDR. When you turn the power on, it should be blinking. When it stops blinking, swap to the original. wait for the access light to blink 3 times fast. It may blink more times before the three times quickly, depending on the game, and it will start reading the disk again afterward pretty quickly, so be swift. It will probably take you 10-15 minutes of trying before you can do it consistently, but the practice pays off. Hope this helps.
