ok people look i'm a tech. and copy rights are my game. This is the deal the Swap Magic 2 kit does work without a mod chip. the deal is ps2 game are made with bad blocks written in them. so when u brun a disk your bruning softwere corrects the error. so the Swap Magic 2 side card tricks it. it boots it up and ask you to insert disk. you use the side card ( knife or whatever) to unlock the cd-rom drive. and putting the brun game in it and pressing enter. you are fooling it to think u never swaped disk and that's why it works. but ps1 game will not work with the Swap Magic 2 kit ... i think u may need a game shark for that i'm still checking that out. so there u have it no taking apart ps2 for mod chip.
