Why can't I disc swap my copies of Metal Gear Solid?

I purchased a Play Station 1 copy of Metal Gear Solid, Greatest Hits version. It has not a scratch on it and it plays like new. Except in one part. I just beat Sniper Wolf and go down some stares. The screen with the game's title pops up and instructs me to swap to disc 2.

I do so, push "start", the screen tells me that it's checking the disc, the title fades to black as if its about to start... Nothing. It stays on a black screen.

I tried starting up disc 2 and it runs fine, but the save point is on disc one and the swap THERE works just fine. Perhaps its my system.

I'm playing it on the smaller, thinner modeled Playstation 2. Any ideas?
