    just got a flip top yesterday and my question is would i use the flip top for playing everything on the ps2 meaning would i not use the eject drawer anymore just use the flip top
    and i was wondering when i go to put in my back up dvd game does it matter how fast you do the actual swap i did it the first time i was a bit slow it went red not loading did it a second time faster and it went ok

    You can boot up original games how you regularly do it, but have to use the flip top for your back-ups. It doesn't matter how faster or slow you do it, as long as you put the back-up cd in properly.

    i've let my system suit on the "insert disc" screen for 30 minutes before and came back to it and popped in my back-up, hit x, and it booted no problem. i dont think time matetrs with the flip top and swap magic because the system is in a paused state.

    what you do is you have to take off the top cover of your playstation 2 and replace it with a flip top meaning basically it turns your ps2 into a flip top type of machine like the ps1 you dont use your cd tray to boot the games anymore you would lift up the flip top cover put your ps2 boot disc in then swap with your backup
    saves you having to solder inside your ps2
    heres all the info you'll need

    hope this helps
