    I need a little help. I have an ps2 70000 and i've heard that it's possible copying games to dvd's that can be played in the ps2 without the mod chip...
    1st of all, is that true? And 2nd, if it's true, how can i do it?

    To play ps2 backups (without modchip or opening
    your ps2) you will need
    swap magic disks And slidecard or slidetool
    or fliptop here is there website
    http://www.swapmagic3.com


    This is what you need to make ps2 backups

    DVD Decryptor
    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/dawnload.cfm?mirror=0&software_id=298

    HERE IS HOW TO COPY AND BURN YOUR BACKUPS

    Use Quality Media I use
    Verbatim dvd+r 8x 100 pack ( 24.99 )
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0002IQ1I0/slickdeals/104-0984492-0108766


    ***** BURN AT NO MORE THAN 2X****** <-----------(IMPORTANT)
    TURN OFF ANY BACKGROUND APPLICATIONS


    1. Take the ps2 game put it in the dvd rom or dvd burner, your choice.

    2. open the dvd decryptor program then go to to tool bar and hit MODE>ISO>READ. Then choose the correct dvd drive that the game is in as the "source". Also choose where you want the files to be stored on the pc hdd. THEN CLICK DECRYPT , or the huge graphical picture at the bottom of the program which makes it run. The game is now copying to your HDD. Take the game out when finished (it might take a while).

    3. Go to the same tab in dvd decryptor and choose MODE>ISO>WRITE. This will then let you look for the files you just created in step 2. Select the file that you just created. (There is only 2 files creadted so pick the .mds) (The smaller file)Then click WRITE, make sure there is blank DVD in the drive.

    THE MEDIA DOES MATTER as ps2 are picky
    use this as a guide:
    I HAVE NOTED THE MEDIA I USE FOR ALL MY PS2 BACKUPS

    The following list is in preference order. The best discs are near the top of the list.
    Almost flawless burns with 95-100% reliable results:
    PVC = Pioneer = (-R)(-RW)
    MXLRG01, MXLRG02 = Maxell = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    MCC = Mitsubishi Chemicals = (-R)<-----------------VERBATIM MY CHOICE #1
    TDKG02 = TDK Corp = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    TAIYOYUDEN or YUDEN = Taiyo Yuden = (-R)<--------------FUJIFILM (made in japan) MY CHOICE #2

    Decent discs, though not perfect, about 85-95%
    success rate:

    RICOHJPN = Ritek or Ricoh = (+R)
    SONYD04 = Sony = (-R) ... be aware of unbranded fakes
    PRODISC = Prodisc Media = (+RW)
    INFODISC = Infodisc Media = (+RW)
    RITEKG04 = Ritek = (-R)
    RITEKG03 = Ritek = (-R)
    OPTODISC = Optodisc = (-R)

    But the copied disks don't damage the laser? I read that because their are not original, their quality is worst, and they force the laser more than the originals, diminishing is life...

    You are mistaken.
    Using a backup does NOT affect your laser.
    It is MODCHIPS that change the laser voltage
    and cause the laser too die.
    Just use good media burn at 1x speed,
    and you wont have any problems.

    To copy non-DVD games just use any CD copying software such as CloneCD or Nero.
