    First of all do I have to have a modchip for my playstation 2 to play backup copies of my games? If I do, what is the best type to get? Also, I have seen some of the USB modchip boxes. Are they ok to use. I am using dvddecryptor and clonedvd2 to make the backups.

    1. yes you need a modchip
    2. Don't get the usb or no solder chips
    3. if you don't want to have a chip soldered in your ps2, get a fliptop and swap magic.

    What's wrong with a no-solder or USB chip?

    Please elaborate for a N00B. I have HDAdvance but am considering adding a chip and want the least hassle.

    Thx

    They have a tendency to blow fuses in your ps2. The fliptop does the same thing they do, but it is easier and safer.

    well, i like the fliptop the best, but if you don't want to spend an extra $15, get the slide card. http://www.consolesource has the fliptop and swap magic for under $40 shipped.
