    Nice find @khalkedon, when @magento talked about Cobra DMC first time i thought about this way to cheat the drive motors to eject the disk without PS3 know, also i think that you can test the old PS2 swap trick also and i think it will work ;)

    If you use directly 5.5 v it may weaken the gears of rom in the time then break the gears. Also if you use 5.5v, the gears make irritating voice. I don't offer directly 5.5v.

    I think that we can make a small pcb that contains an MCU to automate this process, also i think that we can trigger the swap event by using the signal send to eject button in 4K consoles from the Cobra 5.10B JTAG Adapter or even the old serial port Rx pin in old models.

    I couldn't understand exactly what you meant?

    If you mean preparing the SWAP disc you can find in this forum, please search it. This tutorial only interested with swapping method. The other interested subjects you can find in this forum.

    I read the text but I didn't see passed any detail. Please read more careful.

    "Quote from 4:11 in the video: Firstly press original eject button on the console then eject the disc via DPDT switch. "

    If I'm not correct please warn me again.

    No he wanted to see that in the video itself, not explained by text but showed to the people how you do it.
    That's what he meant. =-)

    Any regulator regulating down to 3,3v should work.

    That's what you are doing such a video to show everything and not write about it. I want to see the whole procedure. As it comes out of the game to the XMB, everything from beginning to end.

    Oh God :) Really I couldn't think this will be a problem :) If who wants to see same procedure please watch from 3:06 one more time, what a wonderful idea, isn't it :)
    (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuo2rp0TMOo&feature=player_detailpage#t=186)

    You can try different voltage regulator. I explained my trouble to my supplier then he offered me 7586 and I used it. Please take advice from your supplier. Normally I want to give you an idea about this subject but really I don't know what sould be!

    I hope you are not scold me friend ? :) This is my best, it doen't come more further. If you can make it please here you are!

    Here, too, there is what I wanted to see how the game turns off and removes the disc from the drive? I want to play in the next game and then what? I want to finish one and play the next one and that I was missing on these videos. And I still question what happens when the game is running and I press DPDT switch at this time as the disc rotates ??

    Just dont press the switch while the disc rotates. I think nobody will test this but in theory it can destroy your drive.

    The creator of this solution should warn you not to do. If it can happen it should be written on the first page in bold text: Do not switch if the disc is spinning.

    I had explained on the video but I type here too.

    Playing next game:

    Suppose when you are playing GTA V then you bored and decide to play Gran Turismo 6. When you are in playing GTA V, press to original eject button on the PS3. After that eject the disc via DPDT switch in the disc. Then turn off the console and send the original disc via DPDT switch (on turn off mode you can use the DPDT switch, because electric is on posistion everytime for DPDT switch). Then turn on console. Select the what you want game (for example Gran Turismo 6). Follow the lights of Cobra ODE. Wait till see the blue-red blinking (don't make anythink, only wait). Then wait coming the green and blue blinking. After see green- blue blinking eject the original disc via DPDT switch. Then send the SWAP disc via DPDT switch. At last you will be run the game.

    Note: Normally no need to turn off console for playing next game but sometimes needed. The reason is; SWAP disc 5 minutes later stopping :) If spinning don't eject because you will hear a noise.
