I have a V7 PS2 and I use the Slide card along with Swap Magic2. I own a Pioneer 104/A04 burner, which I purchased of Ebay for £80. It is running the latest firmware update I use 1x or 2x Ritek or Optodisk media, again purchased from Ebay. I use Recordnow Max. So far I have only had 1 coaster, and I have now established it failed becuase the original CD was heavily scratched. My successful back-ups are: The Sims Themeparkworld Gran Turismo 3 Pacman World 2 Grand Theft Auto Vice City Midnight Club 2 Need 4 Speed Hot Pursuit Conflict Desert Storm 2 Amplitude Games that work with CDLoader 7 Beta Soul Calibur 2 Pro Evolution Soccer 2 So after all that I just want to prove that the slide card works fine, and you can back-up games as long as you have good media and burn at a low speed.
