I want to play duplicate dvds on my ps2 but i am not able to do what should i do can i do it at home


  1. If you have backed up a game for ps2, you're going to need a mod chip or swap magic for your ps2 so it can read the disc, so first things first, BUY A MODIFICATION TOOL!!!
  2. 2You should try using Swap Magic, because it's the easiest, and you won't need to modify your PlayStation too much.
  3. 3But if you use SWAP MAGIC, you will also need a special mod chip, SLIDE TOOL, or a FLIP TOP COVER, you can learn more about those on the swapmagic website
  4. 4Read directions on the installation of mod chip, and swap magic before you do anything (you don't want to mess up, or else your ps2 won't work properly).
  5. 5Install your modchip/flip top cover/slide tool. (This is important, because it allows the disc to be removed and "swapped" without the PlayStation knowing).
  6. 6Follow directions that came with your swap magic discs, and you're basically ready to go!
  7. 7HOW TO USE SWAP MAGIC,Note you must have Swap magic 3.6 to boot on slimline ps2 and you need to do a none solder modding(no soldering)

Purchase a flip top (recommended). Let's assume you have the flip top and a copied ps2 game
  1. 1Now Insert the swap magic disc into the ps2,
  2. 2Press power on button until screens comes up.
    • With option that says load cd open the top cover of the flip top.
    • And take out the cd when it stops spinning.
  3. 3Now insert your Copied game and click Load CD.
  4. 4its that easy

How can i unlock my ps2 to play download


There are a few options that I know of, all of which include phsyically modding the console.
As far as I know, there's no softmod for any playstation product (other than the PSP). You'll have to either add a mod chip (which usually involves desoldering the original CPU and soldering the mod chip into place) or get a flip top (if it's a fat PS2). The flip top version is easier, as you're just replacing the top of the outer shell.

If i get the Playstation 3 (PS3) Limited Edition 160GB would i be able to play ps2 games aswell or not, or if i get the ps3 slim will they soon come out with an update so we can play ps2 games on it too?


Since we don't work with Sony, we can't tell you anything about the PS3 slimline, but I do know that the PS3 isn't backward compatible for whatever reason. There are methods to being able to play PS2 games on a PS3, but it requires some mod-work that I wouldn't know about. Check Youtube for videos and instructions.

Can i play a game purchased in japan on my ps2 in the us? if not what exactly do i need to purchase to make it play?


No you cannot.. The ps3 is the only system so far that plays any region game...You would need to buy a mod chip online and install it.. or check out some software that will let you do so..
The chip can be soft or hard
Soft meaning attatches on
Hard means you need to solder it on.
Hope this helps..
PS: just type in ps2 mod chip and any of the stores will have a list of chips!
