    click lol

    This has a good tutorial for swap magic and how to easily remove the cover to use your slide card.

    the version of backup you are using (i/e: nero, roxio, dvd decrypter, etc.) doesn't allow you to back up copy protected dvds. if your just backing up like regular dvds, dvd shrink is the best one to use. dvd decrypter is the best for games(free way). if u have nero, u can just use it to back up games using dvd backup.

    Nice tut.

    Does the type of disc I burn the game to matter?
    Also, does the burning speed make any difference?

    Type of disk, no. +R and -R are fine. Disk speed DOES matter when it comes to quality. If you burn a game, make sure it's only burning at 4X. Anything higher MAY make the videos bad, or screen position bad.

    Well, actually you can use both CD's and DVD's. Which is what the second disk is for, the one that says CD. Downside though, I don't know a lot of PS2 iso's that are under, what? 700mb? Only thing I can see that would be any good is for emulators and things like that. As for where to buy it, I'm not very sure because I'm in U.S.A. and getting it was actually fairly easy. BUT I will do a little searching for you. If I get anything, I'll tell you. :)

    So what would be better to use for the blank disk for back up games or downloaded iso games? CD or DVD?

    I'd say emulators or anything small sized should go on CD's because those aren't as expensive as DVD's, but they both do the same. Only way a PS2 game could be small enough for a CD is if it was mega ripped. Ps2 games for DVD, emulators and homebrew CD's.

    Sorry, can't download and burn Swap Magic. Don't work that way. Wish it would, I'd have saved 60$.

    The slider tool doesn't work with the slim PS2 because there isn't a slot like the one the Fat one has. You need a fliptop for the slim.

    About that website, I do believe that it's good. A few people I knew bought from there with no problem. Up to you where you buy it. I bought mine off www.modchip.com but I just visited that website and looks it's all about repair now... In the end it's all up to you! Good luck and come back if you have any more questions.

    As long as it's the fliptop I don't see why not.
