    Yes, use dvd decrypter to burn dvd-based ps2 games. You need a dvd burner and dvdr media.

    Yes, you either need to install a modchip, use a hdd, or use a swap method like SwapMagic discs.

    If you install a modchip, you will be able to play your backup games just like the originals.
    If you use Swap Magic, you will need to load SwapMagic and swap your backup in everytime.

    I don't use a modchip so i wouldn't know which to suggest or where from.

    But, if you want SwapMagic get the newest version 3.3 Now, to use SM discs, you need to slighty mod your system. If you have one of the older systems (not the slimline) then you will want either a slidecard or fliptop lid. The lid is more convenient for swapping.
    If you have the slimline ps2 you can get a replacement lid, slimtool, magic switch, or tape mod.

    Hey I was able to extract an iso image from my computer to a DVD-R of a PS2 game. But when I tried playing it, the game either loads slowly, skips, or stops. This keeps on happening everytime I burn a PS2 game. I use a FujiFilm DVD-R and I have an HP DVD Writer dvd420i for making, creating and backuping DVD-R. In order to play, PS2 Backups I have a Flip Top Case and Swap Magic 2.0 DVD. Do you think it's my Playstation 2 or is it my Swap Magic 2.0 DVD?

    I think those Fujifilm DVD-R's are bad. Think only the +r's are good quality. Run one through this and let us know the media code. http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com
