At the moment I'm using SMD and Slide Card for playing my backups, but it is such a drag. Seeing as now I play my backups rather than my originals to keep my originals safe from destruction. But this is a long process, considering it takes about 3 or so restarts for the PS2 to read the SMD DVD disk (is this normal?) and then I have to go through the swap process. I am now interested in getting a mod chip fitted. I fitted my own chip into my xbox and it works fine, but apparently the xbox is easier to mod than the PS2. Can anybody tell me where I can get a cheap (but good)mod chip and cheap installation? I don't want to spend a load on getting it installed, as it's gonna cost quite a bit to have it posted. My PS2 is quite old. Would you suggest getting a new one pre-modded? Or would it just be better to send my old one off? Thanks a lot Help appreciated.
