    Iam a newbie here. Please excuse if my question is naive.
    I have a old PS2 ( bought about 2 years back). I have a DVD + r,r/w burner. It does not burn dvd -r. My PS2 does not have any mod chip. Is it possible to backup a PS2 game onto a DVD +R and play it in my PS2.

    Can it atleast play a game backed up on DVD -R without modchip.

    NOPE
    You need some type of modification, maybe like a flip top but you still need to take it apart.

    Yes there are ways to play backups without modding your PS2 and voiding your warranty. As far as I know these are the best methods:

    1) HDLoader (Backs up games directly to a HD in your PS2, no DVD burning required, this is what i'm using)

    2) HDAdvance (Clone of HDLoader)

    3) Swap Magic + Slide Card (Flip Top voids warranty)

    well their you go as -StryderZ- put it.

    120 gig hard drive $120 or cheaper
    network adapter $40 or cheaper
    hdloader or advanced hdloader $30 or cheaper

    Swap Magic + Slide Card $ 29.95

    I prefer mod over swap but to each his own
