    Hey there. Im new to the board and new to the whole backup thing so Im just looking for a little feedback on how I might be able to make my life easier.

    I have a PS2 v1. (yea I know old but still like new) with a flip top and Swap Magic 3.3 Using DVD decrypter and Nero burning on Sony DVD-R.

    My question is, is there anyway I can use AR Max on backed up games (for cheats) and if so how, and if I need any other utilities which ones and where can I get them.

    Thanks in advance

    AR MAX


    DVD BACKUPS
    1. Boot AR MAX
    2. Select the codes you want
    3. Select Start Game
    4. The cd/dvd drive will now eject automatically.
    If you have a version 1-8 ps2 replace the AR MAX with the swap magic cd.
    If you have a version 9/10 ps2 replace the AR MAX with the Swap magic dvd.
    Once you have made the appropriate swap press eject to close the cd/dvd drive and press x.
    5. Once the Swap magic cd/dvd has loaded do the following...
    If you have a version 1-8 ps2 swap the swap magic cd with the cdloader using ea method and press x.
    If you have a version 9/10 ps2 swap the swap magic dvd with the dvdloader using ea method and press x.
    6. Once the cd/dvdloader has loaded press eject and swap the cd/dvdloader with a high toc original such as the swap magic dvd and press eject to close.
    7. Wait about 7 seconds and press x.
    8. Once the screen that says "swap dvdr by ea method" comes up swap the high toc original with your dvd-r backup using ea method and press x.
    9. Your backup will now load with cheats.

    Thanks for the help. Also is Sony DVD-R a good form of media to burn on. I have the 8x discs but I am only burning at 2x

    Sony should be okay.
    (look at my sig thats what i use and i have
    over 50 ps2 dvd backups)
    i would get some (4x MAX media)atleast
    That media should have accepted speeds
    of (1x,2x,2.4x,4x).
    You really want to burn as slow as possible.

    good luck
