    Hi -

    New here. I have a PS2 modded with a neo2.2 chip. I've been using it ok to run cd backups, with AR2v2. but now i've lost the disc, and was going to get another one. I want to use DVD-R backups as well, but have never tried that yet.

    So whats the best option - should I try and source a replavement AR2v2 disc, get a new max / evo, or get swap magic (will this work with the neo2.2)?
    I don't want to use the slide card method
    TIA

    Ron

    swap magic will not replace the slide card method at all, it is a good system but you will still need to use it unless you chip can play back ups without a boot disc, which i am guessing it can't if you are asking that question. Also swap magic is not a cheat code disc like AR Max so if you use it for cheats i would just get a new EVO.
    Also look around the net and see if they have a
    fix (flash) for that chip that will allow you to not need a boot disc at all.

    My slim PS2 has a DMS4 Pro chip and i don't need to use any boot discs because they flashed it with the ToxicOS. Now all my back ups i just put in and they load up like originals.

    those neo's are a piece of shit, i mean how many games come out on cd these days?

    get yourself a proper chip or use sm &slide trick, its probably a lot less damaging to the ps2 than that neo u already got in there :p

    POS it might be, but it boots up DVD-R's no probs with my new swap magic without using the slide tool! - i'm sure i would do more damage with that than the chip can do

    Hold power button as you boot up with swap magic disk. Release power button, tray opens, swap disks (quickly) tray closes automatically. press x to start game
    job done
