    I have DVD decrypter

    what else do I need?
    I dont want to have to install a mod chip, if that is possible. But please give me my options. Thanks!

    Options not including the installation of a modchip include:

    -installation and use of a hdd in your ps2
    -using boot discs (i.e. Swap Magic v3.3)

    Obviously you will also need some dvdr media to burn on. If you have a ps2 v1-3 you will need -r discs. If you have a v4 you may need -r, or some v4's can also take +r's. V5+ can take either. Also, most people have the best luck with 4x max media, and burning at 1x or 2x max.

    Look around for some quality media like: verbatim data life plus, Taiyo Yuden, Ritek, TDK, HP, etc.
