Hello all, I have been on these forums for a while now, mostly on the DVD back up forums...and my kids got a PS2 for Christmas, and they have already scratched two of the $50 games. I have a DVD burner and the new slim PS2 with the flip top...from what I understand that is a good thing...I am able to play DVD-r backups on the PS2. But when I made a backup of one of the games it did not play, I was just brought to the Browser section of the PS2, I am pretty good with computers and the like, but I have no idea of what to do from here...SwapDisk???? ModChip???? Is there other options, and if you do use one or the other, does it put a strain on the PS2 laser. I have searched and searched and get partial answers but I am not too sure what my options are with the new slim PS2...any help would be greatly appreciated...because I want the kids to play the backups and keep the originals in a safe spot. Thanks again!
