    it will work, I use the DMS4 Lite, although there are lots of reports on other forums that it causes over heating issues. Ive yet to encounter it, but I switched to using the magic kx+.

    magic kx+. is that the CD's that you install and your ps2 will reconize burned cd's - I guess you can install a diode so the system will not over heat

    You need to buy a flip top in order for it to work from my understanding on them.

    The problem is the slim ps2s can crash and burn the laser out even without a modchip. so its important to add the resistor protections to the track and focus laser coils.
    This will make sure that if the system crashes it doesnt ruin the laser.

    Also why bother dealing with swapping and discs etc when you can just install a chip :)

    Also diode, are you refering to the diode fix that goes on the tracking & focus, over time the system will stop working if you use the diode fix. the "summ0ne fix" is the best way to do it.

    560ohm resistor & 4.3/4.7k ohm resistor usually needed or 1.8/2.9 & 4.3/4.7k ohm resistor usually needed

    depends what your stock value resistor is

    Yea thats what I was talkin about thought it was a diode so every time you want to put in a backup CD you need to 1st put in the disk correct?.. if that is so rather do the hard mod

    lol, diodefix is supposed to slow down the laser getting warn out, its not a mod that will magically allow backups to play. its just an electrical component :), the "diode fix" is just diodes on a flex pcb.

    I wrote up an explanation on a forum explaing why diodes will do shit all :) but there is enough proof out there that the diodes don't work, ask everyone with busted laser :)

    The summ0ne fix uses resistors, thats the best way so far.

    With the magic discs you need to get a flip top case, and then the swap magic discs. you put the original in, flip the top, put the back up in. very tedious, and you are at more risk than a modded ps2 with the summ0ne fixes applied.
