Welcome to my easy to use guide! With pictures for you non-reader lazy type. Updates: 12/07/06: Added new guide to help people who don't know how to backup their games. 2 Guides! 1.) How to copy your games. 2.) How to use swap magic. How to copy one of your ps2 games! Ok, this portion of the guide is how to get that sexy ISO image from your playstation 2 games. Part 1: Copying your games. In this guide, I'm using what I use... DVD Decrypter! First you download it From here and install it yada yada. After it's done, open the program. You should see a screen like this. When this pops up, pop in your playstation 2 game you wish to back up and wait for it to load. After it loads, go to the top and hit Mode > Iso > Read After you hit it, the bottom icon should show. Click on it and it will start reading your game. Go take a shower and then play some game until it's done. After, I think It will make a sound. Not sure cause I'm in school right now making this guide updated... I'll check when I get home. Just check it once in a while. Part 2 Burning the games onto DVD's. After it's done, take out your game and insert your blank DVD. Then go to Mode > Iso > Write. Click on the folder on the top under the Source. Browse for your file. Most likely, your ISO will be on the root of your hard drive (Start > My Computer > Local Disk C) After selecting the ISO... Click on this icon And let it burn! How to use swap magic Well, to start things off, you're going to obviously need Swap Magic. For those who do not know what swap magic is, I'll explain. Swap magic is a disk that acts almost like a mod chip for the Playstation 2, but without having to put a mod chip in! The swap magic disk should look similar to this. "How can I get this magical disk?!" Just google Swap Magic and find it, cause I don't think advertising is allowed. Anyway, back to the guide. To get things started, you're going to have to remove the front cover of your PS2 disk tray, so it will look like this. It's alot easier if you just break it off... Anywho, next you'll need to open your disk tray and insert the swap magic disk. <--- Sorry about the quality of the this picture, but you get the point. Next you'll have to wait for it to boot. You'll soon see the Playstation 2 logo come up, and soon after that, you'll see this. (Unless you have an older version.) You must wait till you get to the menu. It looks kinda like this. That's when the fun begins. You'll have to use the claw looking thing that you got with your package. You need this. It looks like this. Well, you have to insert it in the SECOND line in the disk tray. Don't understand where? Here ya go. After it's inserted, you'll have to slide it to the right, unlocking the tray. And pull it out. Then take out the Coder disk (Swap Magic) and insert your game. Important!: Make sure you're using the correct disk for the game you choose. For example, you know how you got 2 disks in that package? Well, they ARE DIFFERENT. One's for CD's and one's for DVD's. In this guide, i'm using a DVD game, so I'm going ot use the DVD disk for my game called Black. If you do not know what disk it is, if you look on the left side of the disk, it'll tell you. DO NOT PRESS THE EJECT BUTTON! You must manually push it in slowly. When it goes in, you have to lock it back up. You have to put the claw thing back into the right part of the ps2 disk tray, and lock it by going left. After it's locked, get your controller ready and prepare for game time, but not quite just yet. You'll see at the swap magic boot screen, a few options. Go to the one all the way to the left. It should say Normal. Click "x". Depending on what type of game it is (Pal, Default, or NTSC) You'll have to pick the one the game is. For my game, Black, it's default. Hit "x" and wait. You'll see a blank screen for about 5 seconds or so. (If it takes over 15 seconds, start over.) Then your game will boot and you can throw a party! Hope this helped. I'm going to soon be adding a video for this too, and that's not all. For you PSP users, after I make the video, I'll have a downloadable video just for the PSP!
