    What is a somewhat inexpensive reliable option for being able to play PS2 backups?? I have a modded PS2 and have no issues but my friend is not willing to mod and he asked me to try to find out for him whats best....Swap Magic??? I know it is not supposed to work with every game but I read somewhere that there is a site called swapmagicfix that is supposed to have patches..so is that a good alternative to mod chip??What else is out there ?? and any links are also appreciated...

    swap magic used in conjunction with the slide card/fliptop will probably load about 98% of games on its own there are some problem games that require multiple swaps with either cd/dvd loader and a few that require you to create a modified image file to burn to get them to work for a list on problem games and there fixes check out http://www.swapmagicfix.com

    another option to consider would be the use of a hard drive/network adaptor and the hd advance program, there are also problem games with this method to check out http://www.ps2nfo.com/ps2hdd.html for more info

    ya if you're looking for cost-effective method then the slide/flip top and swapmagic is probably the best bet.

    I personally am using a mod-chip and I love it. No hassle of swaping required, just put the game in and that's it. Never had a problem booting up any game whatsoever and I've had it for 4 years now! Still going strong!
