    i am new at all this. i was wondering what software to get to backup my games. also there is some software that claims to be able to burn dvd and cd games on a cd burner. is that true? or scam.
    and where can i get a mod chip and can i put it in my self? or do i need a pro to do it for me.
    thanks and i would appreciate any info. thanks.

    to burn dvd's you need a dvd burner but you can dvd rip it with cd burner which i don't recommend. cd burner just burns cd.

    I have used the swap magic disc method and have never had a problem with it. I have heard with the mod chip you cannot play online. You can with the swap magic.
    Also always used dvd decrypter and have backed up over 24 games without a problem.

    For CD based games I just use Nero. Seems to work fine with the "Disc to Disc" copy feature. I like to burn at 4x, and just because it's me, I never do it on the fly.

    dvdrips are ripped down version of orginal dvd games minus some video,sounds,music....etc whatever it takes to fit it to cd

    As for what mod to get, how much are you willing to spend and what version ps2 do you have?

    If your going to backup ps2 games you should seriously invest in a dvdburner or aleast use a friends until you can afford one.Most and almost all new ps2 games are on dvd.

    Some software that is good for backing up ps2 games include: nero,alchol 120,and my personal favorite record now. Whatever you do don't purchase that software that say burn dvd games to cd.There's no easy way to do it and with missing features you often are taken out of the game quickly
