    I USE DVD DECRYPTER TO READ AND WRITE THE PLAYSTATION 2 GAME INTO MY HARD DRIVE AND I UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE TO BURN WITH DVD DECRYPTER IN ISO MODE(I AM USING DVD-RW MEMOREX). I TRY TO PLAY THE GAME BUT ALL I GET IS THE RED SCREEN SAYING PLEASE INSERT A PLAYSTION GAME. I DONT UNDERSTAND THE PART ABOUT --SWAP MAGIC AND FLIP TOP--. CAN SOME ONE PLEASE EXPLAIN SPECIFICALLY. THANKYOU.

    First of all dvd-rw's are not good media to backup your ps2 games onto. You have to use either dvd+r, or dvd-r and use name brands. Like sony,verbatim,tdk etc.
    The Swap Magic discs allow you to play your backup copies, its an alternative to modchips. Hopefully you've heard of modchips, they allow you to play backup games. The fliptop is a cover for the ps2, that is like the ps1 cover. it allows you to open your ps2 without pressing the eject button. Because by pressing the eject button the ps2 will NOT allow you to play backups if you are using the fliptop or the slide card method and magic disks, unless you have a modchip installed in it.

    Without a Modchip or swap magic you cannot
    play ps2 backups

    Swap magic can be used with either
    1)-Flip top kit or 2)-Slide card

    You can read the rules here too:
