Question Mod chip for PS2 v4?

sponsored links

 
Hello, I just got my PS2 today so I'm new at this modding thing. The back of it says SCPH 30001 ... and the Serial number begins with a U3xxxx.... (it's a V4 PS2 ..according to this: ***********.modchip.ca/help/whatps2.php ) It's not fitted with a mod chip, so I'm looking for a mod chip to solder on the board, I can do that by myself. Can you guys recommend a good, reliable place to buy mod chips from, and what kind of mod chip should I get? I looked online and it seems that the best chip I can get is a Magic 3.1...If i Do get that chip, will I be able to play DVD9 games...provided that they're split?

Also, I've tried booting the PS2 with a real PS1 game, and every once in a while, I get the "Browser -- COnfiguration" screen, and when I go into Browser, it will detect a PS1 disc, and I can boot that disc. But some other times, the PS2 will boot straight to the game, i've tried cleaning the lense, so is this behavior normal? Thanks for the replies

Is there any disadvantages to getting a Magic 3.1 over a Messiah 2 Pro?

The Duo Modchip is cheap, but does that mean that its quality will be crappier than DMS3 or Messiah 2? I just need a mod chip to be able to handle DVD-R backups, DVD9 and multi disk (DVD9 split into 2 DVD-R) and with a disable mod chip feature. Is this what the Duo offers?

Also, if anti-mod games show up later on, I can just patch it up to remove the antimod right? THanks

Duo is a deluxe version of magic 3.1, it is a bit more reliable. I would go with Matrix Mxl2 or dms3, dms3 is expensive though
