You're gonna have to break the warranty seal to put that on, so why not just get a chip??

i guess because chips are more expensive, and not everyone has the soldering ability/equipment.

Thanks for backing me up Ikebox9k on all the information you posted. The reason that not everybody belives this will work, is simply that no EVERYONE has been around the PS2 scene since the beginning, like you and I, and also that not everyone has seen the inside of the PS2 as often like you and I, and VERY few have knowledse of how the LH, or swap-trick works like you and I.
And, yes, everybody else's points are valid too......This thing coupled with a Swap Magic set/Gameshark/AR is an inexpensive, and very easy to install way for playing backups (especially if you have a DVD-R drive), and like I said before "This is not for EVERYBODY" The no-swap mods are still 'easier to boot up', this is just a simpler way.

any of you who are doubting this do not know zima very well. if it wasn't for him you would not be playing backups today because he was one of the pioneers of the ps2 modchip scene. i remember him making the homebrew sbox that was one of the first modchips for ps2. modchip manufactures send him their chips to have him test them when they are developing new chips. they sent him a swap magic disk to check out and that is when he decided that for $20 it would be a great alternative for people who don't have the ability to chip their ps2 or the $ for a messiah etc. if you don't mind swapping you can swap cdr and dvdr easily with no gameshark and doggle and no soldering just by changing the cover of your ps2. that sounds great to me. no more waiting for the gameshark to boot, no memory slot wasted with a doggle and since my sbox won't boot dvdr this will give me the ability to play them now.
