Hey, recently got ps2, v8, and got a swap magic v3.6. new to all this copying stuff, but went out and bought the ritek dvd-r g05 disc and got my games and copied the image to hard disk and then to dvd-r at 8x!!!!. works perfectly, dont c y u say u need 1x or 2x. was wanting to know, does playing copys put ur laser under more stress than normal. also can anyone recomend a hard drive for the ps2, and can i use the hd as a memory card? cheers for all ur help in getting me started.
