    Hello. I'm really hoping someone can help. I have a version 5 ps2 with unknown modchip. I have been playing backups on cdr for years now with little to no problems. i recently got a dvd burner and have tried to backup my games to dvd. so far with no luck.
    I have a mod chip that requires swapping which i do with a gameshark. I have both a version 1 and a version 4 gameshark. i have burned two games to dvd with dvd decrypter. both on dvd+r fujifilm discs at 2.4x. Both burned successfully but i am unable to get either to boot. Any ideas?

    Hi. apparently no one wants to take a stab at this one. that's alright i believe i have found the problem. i'm lead to believe my mod chip is a neo 2. supposedly dvd will not play with a neo 2. who knew.

    since you already have a gameshark, you can make your own slide card. along with an original dvd based ps2 game, you will be able to boot backup dvds.

    go here for instructions and slide card dimentions:

    You can do it with just gameshark, but i find its easier to use gameshark to load cd loader and go from there, http://www.swapmagicfix.com
