    Sup guys, well my first post. Ok, well you ever done the knife slide trick to open your disc tray so your PS2 doesn't know you did (For the Memory card exploit, SwapMagic, etc.)? Well then you need to know that every time you do that you damage critical parts on your PS2! I will show you a very easy way to avoid this.

    All you simple do is first remove your PS2 cover via the 8 screws in the bottom (Sorry no pictures...didn't feel I needed em. I'll add later if requested.)

    Then do you see the disc tray cover (Black top with 4 screws in it. Says "Caution...")? All you do is remove the screws from it (4 tiny screws, philips), and your done!

    This works because your PS2 doesn't really need those screws in it! It has a magnetic pull on the disc tray center which is PLENTY to keep the top tray on. This way all you do is pull that top tray off and insert the new disc and boom, done, it doesn't even know you did it.

    I've had my PS2 like this for the past year and a half and it never once screwed me over. Always works.

    Don't believe me? Just try it! Unscrew the 4 screws and tug a little on the tray, you'll notice you cant even pull it off without quite a bit of force (MUCH more than the PS2 has when the disc spins).

    How easy eh?
    Enjoy and post comments/questions. I Will do my best to answer them

    So for this trick you would have to have your ps2 open to change the disc?

    Yes, you need to have your PS2 cover off. If you really like, you can just slip the cover back on and let it sit there (More protection if you look at it that way), but doesn't affect your PS2 at all if the cover is off.

    Guess if you worried about your ps2 overheating, then this would work for it also. I was just thinking about how I would go about making it so I could press eject and it not tell the ps2 that it's actually ejecting a disk.

    What you are suggesting is basicly the same thing as changing it to a flip flop top, except you aren't getting the nice top cover.

    well the one major part of the swap disc is to not break your warranty by opening op the ps2

    ok, maybe you miss understood...

    @nyder:
    This is just showing you a cheap ($0) and easy way to do it without spending money for a flip top or trying to modify your PS2 and do something you probably don't know (Or you wouldn't be looking for a guide...) how to even do. I Don't think its worth risking my PS2 by putting a MOD chip on it. (I can but most people edited by ddp up, get a pro amature!) Also, you can't modify your PS2 eject button the way YOU would like too. Its "engraved" into your PS2 and being a knowledgeable person with electronics, you CAN'T edited by ddp with it because there is a certain "pattern" that the PS2 needs to operate in (This is where the MOD chip comes in, but as I said, you could/will screw your PS2 up)...when you press eject its part of the "pattern", theres NO getting around it. If you know things about circuit boards, I could tell you exactly why you can't. Add my email i'manidiot.com edited by ddp on Yahoo or send a email and I'll explain more if you like. So no you can't or ever will find a guide for it. I hope this answers your question, leave feedback.


    @OARRaider:
    This is true about your warranty. You will lose it, but I guess it never mattered to me since mine was up anyways. Then again if you have an older PS2 (Which it has to be in order to do the memory card exploit. v11 and down. I think these are old by now...?) the warranty would be up anyways. Its up to you if you want to do it, its just a suggestion. Also about the laser, as long as the disc is NOT spinning or the PS2 is off, the laser will NOT be activated so it won't be shooting you in the eye or anything. As long as your careful, nothing should happen to your PS2, as I said, I've had mine this way for years.
