Im goin to purchase the HDloader and from wat ive been hearing i need the swap magic to backup my games. I have the following questions: 1. Can the hdloader (with hd and adapter) work on its own (without swap magic or mod chip) 2. Is backups to your games necessary? 3. Wat does the HDloader NTSC version mean, is there another version. 4. If i need the swap magic or slide card, which combo would be the best b/c im getting hdloader with 120 maxtor and flip lid or slide card. I would appreciate your help or more info on the subject so that i dont spend money where i dont need too. Thank you in advance.
