    I had a question about the swap magic disks and the slide tool. First of all do they really work with the tool or do i need a mod chip. If I do need a mod chip whats the best chip out for a ps2. I bought the disks and tool, and I backed up a game that was dvd based. I used the dvd disk and used the tool just as an instruction video told me to. to make a long story short, I could not get the back up to play on my ps2. I used Dvd dycrypter to crack the game. Please help!

    you do not NEED a mod chip, but they are a better option and much easier to deal with.
    With swap magic some games do need to be rebuilt, or need the use of Zoneloader with swap magic to load them.
    And games from other regions will always have a little bit of the screen cut off.

    check swapmagicfix.com and see if that game is on their list as needing anything special.

    okay... everything is sounding difficult... heres the quick run down..


    all you need is.
    DVD Burner
    Superb Blank DVDs
    swap magic DVD
    slide tool.

    you can use dvd decrypter.. but i prefer alcohol 120.. use blank dvds.. like ritek g05 or verbatim .. my favorite is taiyo yuden... all can be purchased from supermediastore.com..

    make a copy of the dvd onto your computer HD.. if its less than 4.36GB u don't need to rebuild nothing and not worry about nothing... then burn the image using alcohol or nero... burn AT 2x... people say 4x.. but ur still new to the whole idea...

    after just use swap magic... and everything should work fine... this has been explained millions of times... so next time used the search feature...
