    It stops spinning once the swap magic disk is loaded.

    Slide Card, cheaper and works the same - no point in flip top unless you want to waste your money or just want to have something "diffrent".

    I used the slide card and flip-top n' swap method to play my back-ups (on my V.7 PS2). Unofrtunately, none of them worked. I even consulted every post that related to my problems. In the end I was out at least 50$. I was extremely frustrated with all the trial and error I went through. Finally, I decided to go with a mod chip and chose to have it professionally installed for $100 (that's with the chip, installation, and shipping). You can have this done for a little more $ and expose yourself to less frustration. Good luck with your decision!

    I say fliptop since it is safer to use than slidecard,and a modchip.The modchip is alright,but the point is how long does it take for a modchip to get outdated.I think a modchip gets outdated really quick making your PS2 pointless.If you are good at soldering then I would say a modchip.If you are just beginning then I would say a fliptop.I have no problems with the fliptop,and I use it alot.I have also used the slidecard,and all it did was screw up my disc tray which I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

    Slide cards only good if you want to try out swaping games, but you ever start backing up alot of games you'll definetly want a flip top.
