    Hey i was wondering if anyone could help...I've been trying to backup some of my games but it doesn't seem to work.

    I have a dru500a, gs2(v1.9), no solder modchip for version 4, ps2 version 4, veritas recordnow software, and memorex dvd-r media. (and windows xp if that matters)

    I have tried many games but it never loads using the normal method for dvd-r backups.

    Do i neeed to change sumthing of my materials or am i just doing sumthing wrong?

    THanks to anyone who can help.

    you need a magic 3.5 or magic 3 mod for dvd games, you cant use the usb pieces of junk

    I have a no-solder mod too. I use Swap Magic v2.0 and it works fine. Try that.

    Works great except for Hitman 2 and Baldur's Gate. Does anyone know if these work w/ GS2 or AR2?

    A no swap mod and an action replay 2 or gameshark2 is not a good choice cause it wont boot dvd games (well it will with another swap method that is only new so I dont know it)

    I guess the No solder works for some Versions of PS2 to play DVD backups. I read that somewhere on the internet.
    Well, if it isn't working just be glad, because....now it's the time to get a real modchip like Messiah or Magic (I guess Dela_ agrees on this one)

    The messiah rules ..

    Supleh2, I thought the Magic 3.5 was the newest. I ask cuase I installed one for a friend, it works perfect, but it says 3.5. Could it be a working fake?

    The Magic 3.5 is not really the Magic chip, it's a clone of the 3.0 with a clip kit combined with it. The 3.1 is the NEWEST chip and has a sleep function, as well as being DVD9 Ready.

    but will the backups work dvd-r and v4 no solder modchip when using swap magic v2.0??

    Don't think that no-solder chips are successful with dvd-r games.
