    A friend of mine has a V3 with a Neo2 or 2.2 chip in it. I tried to boot my backup DVD+R's on his system with the infamous swap-trick using a Action Replay/Game Shark but no luck. It locks up when it's swapped.

    My steps.
    1- insert Action replay boot disc.
    2- standby
    3- turn on holding reset
    4- choose start game
    5- insert original dvd game
    6- choose without codes
    7- release reset and insert dvd+r backup and immediatly pressing X
    8- Lock up

    So..am i doing something wrong with the swap-trick?
    or
    I read in another thread if you connect pin 5 and 6 it will read dvd+r's

    When I insert the backup like an original game it boots up with the "please insert playstation or playstation 2 disc" not with a "error reading disc" message so it can read dvd+r's.

    I haven't tried dvd+r movies yet still working on that. Mission:impossible 2 will do for the impossible mission :)_X_X_X_X_X_[small]To boldly Back-up what no one has Backed-up before!
    If the X-Box is so great why can the Ps2 perform almost the same with far lesser specs??

    Try one of the proceedures in my tutorial here http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/15105 have you tried to see if a movie backup plays on your PS2 with the media you have? If it does then the media can be ruled out, and then you just have to try a boot method. It took me about 20 different ways for DVD-R to work on my Neo 2.2, so don't give up.
