    you need some kind of mod for your ps2 either a swap disc & slide tool/magic keys/fliptop or a chip.

    a swap disc (swap magic or similar) allows you to play back ups without having to open up your ps2 so you dont void your warranty if you have one. you first put in the swap disc then swap with your back up & then you are set to go.

    a chip usually need to be soldered into the ps2 (so requires it to be opened, & voids your warranty)

    a chip is harder to put in but is less hassle when you want to play your back ups.

    here are some links to explain in more detail & gives a list of what chip & who to buy from - make sure you buy from a reputable supplier as there are "clone/fake" chips on the market
