    There's a bunch of different ways you can go on this. You can get a modchip installed in your ps2, which will selfboot your backups for you. Or you can go with a swap method like the SwapMagic discs. With the swap method you can either get a fliptop lid, the slimtool, ghost switch, or a replacement fliptop lid. It's a matter of preference to choose which you like. So far it seems that they all work effectively.

    Yes SwapMagic v3.3 are the discs you want. There is one for loading cd games and one for loading dvd games.

    Along with the SwapMagic discs, you can do one of many different ways to complete the swapping. I taped down the 2 internal sensors, i think its simple to do and obviously cheapest and quickest fix. There's also a straw method which i never bothered to look into. The ghost switch, and they're making a replacement lid for the slim fliptop soon. I think there's also a slimtool out there now, that looks like there's a couple of pieces that you snap into place or something.

    You can search the site to see which method you would like to use. If you look into them, they are all probably fairly easy to accomplish.

    I saw a site that sold the Swap Magic disks and the Ghost Switch. Disks were like 18 bucks and the Ghost Switch was 7 bucks I think. I think thats a fairly cheap mod.
