    I'm sure Jizmak told you the correct place to go but I'll still tell you this.

    The easiest way to copy PS2 games that I have found is to use Nero. Insert original into DVD drive for direct copy or put it in your DVD burner if you don't have a DVD drive(will have to have atleast 4 GB of free space) Select DVD tab(if you have that v of Nero) select copy disc(open with Nero Express) Click "More" in Nero Express and save as an .iso. Burn at the least possible writing speed(I use 1x). Click next and let it do it's job.

    Actually, JAP games are NTSC format, not PAL. Swap Magic will play them without needing the PAL switch on the SM CD.
