    The new gameshark version 3/4 is an auto-ejecting one, so if u tape mod your new slimline ps2, you can run your backups easily.

    Here's what u have to do:

    1. Tape mod your slimline ps2
    2. Insert your Gameshark V3/4 Disk
    3. Select Start Game
    4. The tray doesn't eject in the slimline ps2, so the gameshark disk should stop spinning (someone correct me if i'm wrong)
    5. Swap the GS disk with CDLOADER
    6. Press X to boot the game
    7. Follow the CDLOADER directions to boot a game to play your backup!

    Note: I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS METHOD AND IF ANYONE CAN GIVE ME FEEDBACK ON IF THIS METHOD WORKS< PLEASE POST HERE!!!!

    Thank you!

    No wait, don't buy it

    Get GS 2 Version 2 or lower because that is more likely to work than Version 3/4

    I also heard about some GS protection in the slimline PS2, so if you dont want to take any risks, just get the Swap Magic 3.3 Set

    ok, i have it confirmed.

    the GS disks dont work with the tape mod in the new slimline ps2

    What you should get then:

    Swap Magic 3.3 Set

    no because when you put the GS disk in and select start game, the disk is supposed to stop spinning and then eject, but when the psTWO is tapemodded, it thinks that the tray is always closed, meaning that it thinks that the psTWO hasnt ejected the disk. This makes the GS disk keep on spinning.

    In ohter words, just get the Swap Magic 3.3 set to be safe :)

    oh and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
