    Hi All,

    Im new to backing up my PS2 games and I was hoping you could clarify if I have the right idea.

    Ive just ordered Swap Magic and a slide tool from ebay.

    If I buy a USB HDD Case from ebay e.g
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=96894&item=5177117020&rd=1

    Will I be able to slip an old standard HDD in it and store all my backups on that and just leave the Swap Magic disk in the PS2 for when I boot up ?

    This would save me messing about burning DVD's and swapping discs and would only cost me about 30 squids for the complete system.

    Many thnx in advance.

    S c o t t
