Ok! Went out and bought a action replay 2 version 2 the other day. I want to be able to play my backups using the slidecard/knifetrick method. I have removed the top of my ps2 so that it works like a fliptop cover only its missing the fliptop and the cover as well. Anyway i power on and insert the ar2 cd for booting (the ordinary way just ejecting the tray and inserting the AR2 disc) and when it has finished booting and i have chosen "start without codes" it tells me to insert a game disc, only the ar2 disc doesnt seem to stop spinning unless i eject the cd. Where do i go from here? Do i eject and insert the backup? I did that and it didnt work. Maybe ive burned it wrong? I use verbatim dvd+r and i have a AOpen DRW4410 dvd burner. I am sorry for maybe causing a unwanted and a unnecessary post, but i have used the search function but not found anything that helps. I need to know if i can play backups using only the AR2 v2 disc with the cover taken off my ps2 and if so, how do i do it?
