    just depends on if you get lucky. no-solder chips tend to pop fuses on the motherboard. this happened to 2 of mine

    The No Solder Modchip is good if
    1) It works.
    2) Bought it for less that 15.00.
    3) Do not want to solder.
    4) Do not want to spend $75 bucks to have someone solder it for you.
    5) Already have a Gameshark or Action Replay and own an original game that has a large TOC size (Devil May Cry, or the Demo), so you do not have to purchase that expensive set of swap disks.

    I didn't really like the no solder mod chip that much, because it didn't play my imported games. And I suggest that you get the flip top because with the flip top you don't have to unplug anything,and it won't blow out any fuses and it won't effect the cd tray at all or gameplay, plus it looks really cool on the PS2.

    that is why you should get a swap magic disc for no solder because swap magic disc allows you to play imports. Gameshark doesn't do all the things swap magic disc does.

    I love my no solder mod!!

    Using Swap magic that came with the kit.

    OK - so there might be a few games I can't play (ie Vice City) but the money I save on the ones I can play will more than make up for that.
    I have installed the no solder mod in 4 different systems (from v1 - v7).
    - havent heard of any blown fuses.

    A great alternative!

    To solver your problems on not being able to play Xenosaga and Vice City, get yourself a Gameshark. I am able to play both Xenosaga and Vice City backup PERFECTLY with the No Solder Modchip. No soldering, no nothing. I can even use Gameshark codes to boot and play the games. Oh YEAH

    Vice city works fine with swap magic and fliptop or no-solder. Chelica - how did you backup Xenosaga? thats a DVD9 game.
