I am new to this concept, and i was wondering if i need a mod chip or i have to do any swapping techniqes with a copied dvd game. So basically can i make a copy of a dvd based ps2 game and play it on my ps2 without having to do anything else. Also i was wondering if anyone could tell me about this swapping idea, i dont know anything about it. Maybe you could just post a link so i could read about it. Thanks for helping out a newbie. Thanks agian.
