    Hey, I recently got the new PStwo and wanted to get a chip for it...but found out that there were only a few of them compatible with this new system and that they were messing up the lasers...anyhow, I am now wondering if I should go with the Swap Magic 3.3 or 3.2 which ever one and if it would work on the new PStwo atleast until they find a way to fix the chips.
    Does anyone no if I will need a fliptop still, seeing as this pretty much has one in the new system? And if the Swap Magic would be all I needed to play back-ups?
    Thanks Alot in advance...I tryed searching for these answers on the net but was not succesful :(

    u need the swap magic discs and also need to do a soft mod on the console. its not hard just open it up and tape down the switches that tell the ps2 that the drive is open so it always thinks its closed.

    OK thanks for the help, i have now done the soft modification and i noticed that the cd still spins even when the disc tray is open, now i know that this is what it is supposed to do, however, it makes this really odd noise as if the cd was scraping against the lens or sumthing. Does anyone know if this is to be expected? Normal? Also i was wondering...if the cd just keeps spinning, when i am doing the Swap Magic method, how am i supposed to grab the cd and swap with the back-up game when it wont stop spinning? or DOES the swap magic stop allowing you to change discs? sorry for the stupid questions but I am new to this and really need help. thanks for your time...

    i haven't done the softmod yet but from other people said, and the general use for swap magic discs, it should probably stop spinning when it asks you to put in a game disc

    Finally I have modded my PSTWO. I bought a DMS4 Pro. But at the end I choose to do Swap Magic Mod. Here is my conclusion for everyone thinking of mod their PSTWO.

    1. Laser Burn out problem. Compare to Modchip and Swap Magic I think. Is more safe to go for Swap Magic.

    2. My PSTwo is Australia PAL version. After I modded my PS2. I have tested more than 10 games. NTSC Japanese version. No problem.

    3. The Version I used was Swap Magic DVD 2.0 EUR Build. And Swap Magic 3.0 CD EUR Build.

    4. NEVER use superglue, just "Tape" is fine. I done mine in less than 10mins.

    5. In my opinion Laser burn out is cause by the "modchip", and I don't think there is a "SAFE" modchip for PSTWO. I recommend Swap Magic, compare to modchip is more safer.

    Before I was thinking to order Swap Magic v3.3, but now I can get most of the game running why should I waste money on newer version.
