    Ok, first I want to apologize for posting what I'm sure you all have heard before.

    I have a version 7 PS2. I want to get it setup to play backup copies. What is the best route to go? Even better, got a link to more info? I know there are several ways (Mod Chips,Solderless Chips,Swap Methods)

    Any opinions or comments please. I couldn't find any specific info on the search.

    I would just get a fliptop with swap magic, it is very easy to install and is very easy to use. It is also on must modchip web sites.

    did you even read the link i gave you? You have 2 options;
    no-solder, swaping boot disc option
    or solder no-swap option

    Yea I looked at it. But it is kinda general. Maybe I'm asking too much, but does anyone have a personal opinion? I wanna buy a backup player solution and I want to get on the right track.

    ok, again:
    are you good at soldering or want to pay someone to solder the chip for you
    or would you rather have an easy install and have to swap a disc every time you wan't to play a backup.

    I guess this way. Is this way as good as a chip?? I ave a dual layer burner. Am I losing anything by not going with a chip?

    you might be losing some game compatiblilty by not getting a chip. I would get a fliptop and swap magic like philip said (thats also what i have).

    with a chip your ps2 will just play the backup as if it was an oriigonal . also there are some games that require patches and things to get a copy of it to work with the swap discs .
