    After I burned a PS2 game using dvd decrypter. I tried it in my PS2. The screen on my PS2 now asks for a playstation 2 format disc. What does that pertain to?

    your ps2 format disk is a ps2 original game. your ps2 has to be modded to play backups. is yours modded?

    yes the best way is to have a flip top. you don't need to instal a modchip just a new cover(only takes 10min to do and is very easy) and then you use the swap magic disk that come with it. flip top is around $30us with the disks or $19 without

    Also what about the software DVD wizard pro? It says I don't need the mod chip when I use that software... is that true?
