    what is the best way to play backups. The flip top or a mod chip (or any other method). Is the flip top hard on your playstation. Also if i order a flip top and boot disc why do i need to know what version my playstation is. Are there any non solder chips that do not need a boot disc?
    thanks

    There is no best way that is personal preference. I dunno what u mean by is it hard on ur ps2, but if you mean hard to do then no just simply unscrew and change cover rescrew. You need to know what version you have cuz there are 3 types of covers (third one being the new slimline).

    he means is it damaging on your ps2 well if your doing the swapmagic thing like with the slide tool and you do everything right then no, but after a year of your ps2's laser reading that swap magic disc it wares out

    A Quality Modchip is the best way to go... Get it installed by a company, do solder yourself or buy a new premoded unit!

    Fliptop/non-solder are annoying & you can have problems with many games.

    HDLoader doesn't work on everything & if your backing up from the ps2 drive it can weaken the laser etc.

    so back up using the pc or network your pc and ps2 together...90% of games DO work with HD loader/advance
