    I know there are tons of tutorials and guides and threads out there for this topic, but none seem to answer all my questions.

    My setup is this:
    Swap Magic 3.0
    Dvd Burner
    Dvd-R / Dvd+r
    Ps2 game
    Dvd Decryptor
    Ps2 Version - SCPH-39001

    Out of all the threads ive read most people say its easy and give great tutorials but stray away from just using this setup, and from what ive gathered this is all I need to backup my basic 4.7g ps2 dvd.

    Just wondering if this setup is correct and if all I need to do is this:
    Put ps2 game in computer
    Run Dvd Decryptor
    Read the ISO
    Take ps2 game out and insert Dvd-/+r
    Write the ISO on the dvd
    Use Swap magic on ps2
    Insert Dvd and play

    This seems very logical and easy compared to half of these tutorials and guides where people use 10 different programs and run into all these problems, I gotta be missing something somewhere.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    that is the easiest way. If that is too hard you just need to give up now. I even included pictures :)

    Also, i will have to assume that you know that a slidecard or fliptop case (best option) is needed with Swap Magic to play back ups.
