Hello. Im looking into getting a modchip, but after spending $200 on a Magic 2 that wouldnt work right with Origionals and PSX games, Im a little afraid to jump in and buy one. Now Im reading about problems with the Magic 3.1 ... some of which were easy to fix... however I have not read anything myself about the Messah 2. Am I just not reading the right threads... or is the Messah 2 way more relayable? I have a V5 US PS2. PS The replacement chip I have now is one fo those swap chips...but for some reason I cannot boot up PS2 backups on DVD. It gets as far as the step where I put in the origional with the larger TOC size, but never ejects for the swaping to the backup with the smaller TOC. I am using a Gameshark 2.
