    to boot backup games requires the use of a no swap mod chip or a boot disc used in combination with the flip top or slide card

    In my opinion, I would go with a mod or a hd for your PS2 not swap or slide card becuse it is a real pain to do it every time you wanna play a game. Also, they ware out your PS2's laser and it's lifetime is gonna drop.

    I got a hd for my PS2 and i am in love with it

    well i've been doin the swap method on my v4 ps2 for over 4 years and its still running perfectly. So if it wears out the laser, then it takes a pretty long time. And i have no problem swapping, the whole 15 seconds it takes doesn't bother me. But, it's a preference issue.

    rentyman go with a hd for your PS2. trust me. i'm not against swap or anything, but i just heard that it quickly becomes a pain in the...

    btw don't mod your PS2 by yourself anybody. I'm an average guy and I fried my PS2 trying to do it myself to save a little $$$$$$$

    ;)

    to play burned PS2 dvd games you either need swap magic slid card or mod. bottom line.

    but, if you have a burned copy of a game, then you must of had the original somewhere, so just use the orginal and put it on your hd.

    there is one way to put PS2 burned games on your hd but you must go through your comp.

    it's the same thing as downloading a PS2 game off irc or something then sending it to your PS2 hd.

    Hey guys, I need some major help. I am going to college soon and id like to backup some of my games. I was wondering if there was a mod chip that i can buy that will allow me to put in my PS2 game into my computer and simply burn the game to a cd-r or dvd-r disk, then just pop it into my PS2 and play it(maybe this is what all mod chips do, im not sure).

    Wow that sounds great. So i wouldn't have to download any bio's or any weird files in order to burn the games? And also, which mod do you recommend, and where do you recommend i get it installed?

    well, what mod you should get kinda depends on what SCPH number your PS2 has. So check that and then get back to me. Also, I tried to install a mod myself and...well.. I guess I kinda thought I knew what I was doing but in reality I really screwed up my PS2.

    ADVICE TO ALL: Don't try and mod your own PS2 if your not 110% at soldering!!!!

    I screwed up my own PS2 trying to mod it myself and had to spend 150$ for a new one. Just send it in to somebody to have them do it for you!!!!
