    Temporary Solution

    I just found that this method works for me by accident. It does work for me 100% of the time, but idk about your cases.

    Let's use this example:

    I use Codebreaker 10 and it always crashes whenever it asks for a CD swap, so I open pcsx2, use P.E.Op.S plugin, then load the CD. it will load. then do your thing over there. now, when it prompts you for a CD change, change the disc, but dont press the X button, instead, press escape, then configure. change the CD plugin to Gigaherz. Then continue the game by pressing execute. then press X (screen is black so you wont see anything, but it is there.....). then press escape. then change the plugin back to P.E.Op.S. then return to the game. the game then commences with all my cheats.

    My guess is that P.E.Op.S never give the game the idea that it already swapped discs. So I use Gigaherz to just give that instruction, then return to the latter said to continue the command left by the Gigaherz plugin.

    I hope it helps.

    I'll try posting the console next time, for a sample.

    Monster Ramcher 4 Disc Swapping WORKS!!

    Step 1: Download the Monster Rancher 4 NTSC ISO

    Step 2: After you download the ISO, download the plugin 0.7wip4(found on this forum) and extract in the plugin folder of PCSX2.

    Step 3: put an audio CD in your drive.(wait till it reads the CD). Then proceed to Step 3.

    Step 3: Open PCSX2, you should get some test results leave it. Go to CDVD option and set plugin make sure the plugin is 0.7wip4 and go to plugin menu and set the drive(VERY IMPORTANT STEP FOR LATER)

    Step 4: Set the CDVD option back to ISO, and browse for your monster rancher 4 ISO.

    Step 5: Now BOOT FROM THE ISO, fast or full doesnt matter

    Step 6: Load your game and go to shrine.

    Step 7: Go to Saucer Stone, it will ask to put in your CD.

    Step 8: Go to CDVD option again and set it to plugin. A pop-up will appear click "SWAP DISC"

    Step 9: Proceed with the on-screen instructions, once you are prompted to place the monster rancher 4 CD.

    Step 10: Switch the CDVD to ISO.

    I'm having some troubles getting my emu to see a disc at all. Have the latest stable pcsx2 code (.98 compiled April of this year was latest on the site yesterday) and apparently it came bundled with some .8 code for your plugin. I've set it to look at the disc (currently tried GranTourismo 4 and Campions of Norrath) but it only boots to see two mem cards. I've tried updating firmware of the drive and it's still doing the same thing. peops doesn't seem to want to be seen at all as a plugin. I get this line when I start my emu: "CDVD Plugin C: Version 3 != 5"

    when I fire up the emulation I get:
    Opening CDVD
    * CDVD: Opening drive '\\.\D:'...
    * CDVD: IO thread started...
    * CDVD: Disk Type: No Disc

    Also I tried .6 and .7 code and I get
    1. Opening drive '\\.\D:\... ok.
    2. Starting read thread... ok.
    3. Checking Sizes...
    *Checking Sector Count... 2594960 sectors.
    *Checking Layer Break Address... error. Probably not a DVD. Assuming CDROM....
    4 Attempting to read disc TOC... failed!

    any thoughts?
