    Do you need to have a mod chip in your ps2, in order to play your backup dvd copy?

    What type of no-solder chips are you talking about besides swap magic? The only other no-solder chips i know of only let you play cd-r backups. The DMS4 E.Z.I. is coming out soon and that will offer completely solderless installation and have the same functions as the DMS4.

    find out what version of ps2 you have. flip top and swap magic dvd combos are about 35 bucks US. Worth it. There other mod chips that are easier to use but harder to install. It's a matter of preference.


    good luck

    I also read on cybershop.com that it requires a slight mod to the new ps2, what kind of a mod is that, how do you do it?
