    is it possible to burn games that exceed the normal 4.7 gig dvd-r capacity?

    yes, you can do it on a dual layer dvd-r but you need a dual layer dvd burner.

    o ok, good. cause i saw a dual layer dvd burner for 70 bucks in intrex the other day.. BTW.. WHATS THE BEST WAY TO GO AS FAR AS PLAYING BACKUPS ON PS2? Should i proceed on getting my ps2 modded? or should i use that swap disk stuff? i dont want my lens to deteriorate due to chipping, nor do i wanna experience accidents with my swap disks, such as them scratching.....

    I have a Sony DRU-700A, now the new model is DRU-710A last i checked. And it can burn anything including dual layer, but there are very few dual layer games out there. Most are standard 4.7GB discs.
    I know GT4 is dual layer and have been told so is the Champions Of Norath series but those are the only i know. You can get the Sony burner at Dell.com

    it's a fantastic burner.

    there are very few games that are dl. Another is Xenosaga Ep 1. You can pretty much copy any game without a dual layer burner.

    for your second question, swap magic has worked very well for me. I have a flip-top lid also.

    Too bad PS2's wont play backup dual layer media (DVD9). I tried with Verbatim+DL of a backup of GT4, didn't work!!!!

    GT4 is uncopyable, at least for now, but other DVD9's should work if your mod supports them.
