    OK, lets give a few possible solutions.
    But first one thing i do not understand. You say you have Swap Magic 2.0 (very outdated by the way) and a modchip?
    you would only need one or the other unless it is not really a mod chip but what they call an eject mod. An eject mod basically just stops the PS2 from resetting when you open it. That is not a REAL mod chip. a real mod chip would play back up games without a need for Swap Magic.

    1. DVD Decrypter will work fine. I have used it for years for burning ISO files. Both PS2 and Xbox
    2. DVD Shrink is for movies not for games. And Nero i also never use for games.
    3. Make sure the burner you are using has the latest firmware available on it.
    4. make sure you are copying the ISO to your hard drive and then to another disc. And not copying from one burner to the other.
    5. make sure your PS2 is modded correctly. With the above i have no real idea what you are doing. You mention swap magic and a flip top which on an older fat PS2 is all you need. Just stick in swap magic, then at the main screen open the fliptop, put in the back up, and press X
    On a slimline PS2 there is one other mod needed to keep it from resetting.
    6. i suggest using the DVD-R first. Last time i checke most Sony burners could not booktype a DVD+R to DVD-Rom (which would really help). So DVD-R would be your most compatible choice.
    7. i have no idea what you mean by a DMA problem. are you talking about a DNAS problem? The DNAS is something you have to patch into all back ups that you want to play online with. If you do not play online then do not worry about it.
    8. with a Swap Magic version as old as 2.0 you may want to check the swapmagicfix.com site to see if the games you are trying to back up needed any special loading programs. As i said above 2.0 is old and way outdated and you will continue to have problems unless you update to a newer version, or get a real mod chip installed.

    I have been using DVD Decrypter in attept of buring PS2 games onto a DVD. I have done the following:
    - Inserted PS2 game in computer
    - Used DVD Decrypter in ISO Read
    - Inserted blank DVD in DVD RWdrive.
    - Used DVD Decrypter in ISO Write.
    Everything appears to be successful while following these steps. However when I place the DVD in my PS2 it is not recornized. I keep reading about Swapmagic and flip top, but I am not sure what this means. Do I need to add special software/hardware to my PS2 in order to read the burned games?
