    I'm new at this and need some questions answered. What type of DVD media do you use to copy SP2 games?
    -R/+R and what is the best copying speed to use? I was going to use "AnyDVD" and "Alcohol 120" to copy with a I/O Magic DVD drive. Does "DVD Decrypter" work the same as "AnyDVD" and is it free? HELP....PLEASE!!

    use alcohol 120% ,works great for me, it depends on ure ps2 console type if it can handle dvd +r , mine is v9 and i only use dvd+r and allw work fine. Dont go for cheap media , as long as use decent media like verbatim , TY or ritek u have no problems.

    First of all, thanks for responding to my inquiry. You say yours is V9? How do I identify my SP2 or where do I find that info?

    Do I have to install a Mod Chip in my SP2 for my copies/backups to work? Also, I found out my SP2 is V7/8. Now how do I find out if I need to use -R or +R DVD's?

    You don't have to buy a modchip. If you don't want to pay for installation or don't want to go into extensive installation yourself, get a flip top or a slide tool with Swap Magic Discs or Breaker Pro. Another alternative is to get a hard drive and hook it up with your PS2, get a network adapter, and load games directly off of the hard drive using the
    PS2 HDAdvance or HDLoader. You can check them out here: http://www.gocybershop.ca/customer/home.php?cat=191

    If you decide to get a modchip you won't have to switch discs all the time. If you decide to go the hard drive that will have multiple expenses, I also recommend getting the hard drive in-store. You can get a 200 GB hard drive for around $90.00 after a mail-in-rebate. Each DVD-based game is usually four GB's.
