Default Use a PSX boot disk on PS2??

Hi all I'm using a flip top with Swap Magic disks so I can't play old psx backups. I was wandering can I use one of those PSX boot disks to boot up psx games on my PS2?

No but you can use a GS2 or AR2 and use the PSX disc (2nd disc) to boot your PSX backups. I've done this all along with no problems at all and since your not running on a chip you'll have to boot with something other than an old boot disc that just won't read on the PS2... (better yet see if a freind has the PSX disc that you can have or find a used one somewhere, yard sale, flee market, etc)

Take care...

yeah they do I've seen them around on the internet shops. But I ended up getting me a Gameshark Light disk for the psx for about $2. and I just use that to boot psx disks
