    First, Roxio will probably not work. I've never had success with it. When I tried copying PS1/2 discs with it I usually get an error something to the effect of too many errors on source disc, aborting. Get another burn program, any other one will probably do. Then mod your PS2 in some way. Either a flip-top/Swap Magic combo or a no-solder modchip.

    Nope. If there were we'd all be doing it.

    If you PS2 is modded with a no-swap modchip, yes. But like I said, Roxio has been known to not copy Playstation 1 and 2 discs properly. I recommend getting another program.

    Some of the newer chips that are favorites are the DUO2, DMS3, and Matrix series. Magic V chips also work very well still especially in newer PS2's. If you have a PS2 older than v7 you can get away with installing a much cheaper Magic 3.1 as well.

    Your other options would be either insalling a solderless modchip or a flip-top cover enabling you to more easily utilize something like Swap Magic discs more easily as how in order to use them you must have a means of changing discs without pressing the Eject button. You can also use a slide card to manually open the disc tray but you run a greater risk of damaging the parts that make the tray operate.
