Default Best No Solder mod chip?

sponsored links

 
What is the best no solder mod chip for the best price? I've seen the no solder mod/swap magic discs bundles on gamegizmo nad easybuy2000, are those good ones? Where else do you recommend I look?



Also, how easy is it to install/mess up? I can do it myself right (I have no experience). Is the chip reliable (will it cause problems with my cd tray or anything else) and are there any games that it won't work with now or in the future (besides DVD rips, I don't care for those)?

The nosolder/swap magic combo is a good investment if you do't know how to solder and wan to be able to play your dvdr backups. Just make sure you order the right one that will work with your PS2 version.
The only drawback is that the Swap Magic cd disc cannot be used to boot dvdrips (games bigger than 650 mb). I wouldn't worry about that because why would you be playing dvdrips if now you can have the full dvdr backup?

Order from gamegizmo. Easybuy2000 is going through some "rough " times right now.

Actually the claim now is that with the version 2.0 cd-r Magic Sawp disk you can boot games over 650mb. Easybuy and other sites that sell the magic swap disks say it in the description.

I just got my set (the plug in chip and swap disks) from easybuy2000, and haven't had any problems with cd-r games so far.
Then again, the only cd-r games i've tried are Gran Turismo 3, Midnight Club Racing, Smugglers Run 2, State of Emergency, & The Sims. Not sure if any of those are over 650mb though.

a fair chunk of my PS2 Cdr (I have ~300) are over 630MB and swap magic 2.0 CD for booting CDr WON'T boot them - it's pretty poor for CDr.

THe DVDr boot CD is pretty good though - boots everything I have except Britney Dance Beat...

So - I think u'll be dissapointed if u buy it for CDr......
