For ps2, you can install a modchip that allows backups to be played normally. Usually involves soldering, so if you don't want to do that you can use a swap method like SwapMagic v3.3
Using SwapMagic requires a special fliptop cover or use of a slidetool to swap the SwapMagic disc with your backup.
This, site as more info on this than you will ever need.
thanks alot what is the cheapest way to go the mod chip or the flip top and how much is the swap magic ? is there a web site you can email me i would i appreciate it tnks again
SwapMagic is probably around 25-30 bucks usually and you'll get a dvd loading disc and a cd loading disc with it. Some sites sell SwapMagic bundled with a fliptop for your ps2 version or with a slidecard. I believe the fliptops are around 20 bucks or so.
Fliptops are a little more expensive than than the slidecards, but once installed, it makes swapping easier than the slidetool method.
One site you can atleast checkout to see what this stuff looks like and what it does would be:
I'm not specifically saying to get it from there, but they have all of these items to take a look at.
thanks so much ill ck out the site
sorry again but i just want to make sure that i am getting this right and that i will not have to oder anthing elese i have a dvd burner and i have dvd decrypter and nero all i need now is a flip top and swap magic 3 right?
is anyone one there i am about to order is i was just woundering if there was anything else i need to order? i don't want to make a mistake please help just 1 more time pleazzzzzzz!!!!
just make sure you get a compatible fliptop for your specific ps2 version. Like the fliptop for version 4-7 ps2's and there's one for versions 9-10 i think.
That's all ya need, other than blank dvdr's and your ps2 games.
thanks again you have been lots of help !!!!!!!!
geezzz one more question i hope last one for today anyways what about swap magic 3 will it work with coping x box games and game cube games and what is hd advance 2 is swap better?
no, you can't play xbox or gamecube games on your ps2 no matter what. hd loader lets you put games on a hd you install in your ps2.
is there an x box flip top i caint seem to find one and what software do i have to use for the x box same about the game cube? i would like to order the x box flip top and software first seems like playstation fliptops are easier
There are no flip-top covers for xbox. The swap trick does not work for booting backups. You have to use a modchip to boot xbox backups.
what about game cubes looks like you know alot about them ?and what about the spider no solder chip for the x box will that be all i need and what is a good site for them?
