I'm new here and read alot of posts, but didn't see exactly what I was looking for. I want to back up PS2 games that I have. I have DVD Decrypter, Nero ver 18.104.22.168, a DVD+R burner, PS2 SCPH 30001, version 1.5, my PC is 40GB, 256k, 2.6 pentium 4, running XP home, also have another PC with same system without DVD drive. Do I absolutely need a mod chip for the PS2? Some posts say yes and some say no, are they being sarcastic? Can anyone give me an exact step by step walk through on how to do it, and if I need a mod chip, tell me where I can get 1 cheap? Can I use my DVD+R or do I need DVD-R burner, can I use re-writable DVD+R's so if I mess up I don't waste a DVD? Please help!!!!
