OK, I've seen conflicting reports, and would like to get it cleared up once and for all. Should I risk using backups of my original games and their disc id's in order to preserve my original games, or are using the backups "100% safe" as long as it's with my own disc id's? I'd rather use backups, because I've had too many games get scratched up and ruined, but I'm afraid of what some people say about your ps2's machine id getting banned. If just the disc ID gets banned, then it's not that big of a deal because I could get one of the other disc id's from another game I own, but then again, I don't see how this could get banned either since I own the original. Does this make sense? Is it just the disc ID that DNAS kicks, or are they actually killing systems? On this forum, I've seen both answers, and just wanna be safe. Also, anyone have any idea when ps2ownz will open back up registration so I can get a copy of disc id inserter? They seem to be THE place where everyone links to. Thanks in advance.
