    when it says its not the right format, it means it couldn't find the copy protection things that are on an original. thats why you need a chip.

    yeah, the copy protection is bad sectors which you cannot reproduce.

    Okay... I was just wondering... you dont NEED a fliptop if you have the magic gate disk but it just makes it quite a bit easier correct? and is there anywhere I can buy a magic gate disk without buying online?

    is there absolutely any way to burn a ps2 game and get it working without having to take the ps2 apart or buy something. like a special way to burn it or. a special program.

    If you dont want to take your PS2 apart, then just buy a swap disc.
