    Here's what I got so far.

    After firmware update the burner recognizes more of the blank media.
    I upgraded thru the offer in the box to Recordnow DX. I dont know if this is the same as Recordnow Max. If anyone can confirm?
    I have used Nero 5.5.10 to make an image copy of Clone wars
    I have used Recordnow and DVDecrypter 3.0 to make copys of the same game. One was a Global Image.
    I have a version 1 ps2 with the Neo-Key and It will not play any of these copys
    It will play a copy of Simpson's Skateboarding which is a Ps2 Cd game. I just made a copy of this on the fly.

    I believe the problem is with my Chip and not the Copy's

    Can I re-mod my version 1 PS2 or should I buy a new version with Messiah installed?

    If anyone can add to this thread it would help alot.

    The choice is yours.
    You can:
    1. buy a new version PS2 with mod. (like messiah or Magic)
    2. keep this PS2 and buy/install the Magic mod or Messiah 2 Pro.

    The only thing is that the old one will only read DVD-r.
    If you buy a new version PS2 with chip it will probably boot DVD-r/-rw and +r/+rw.

    The Neo-key will not boot the DVD backups, only the CD-r's.
