first you need to install a hardware inside your PS2 and then use gameshark CD to run copied games...using this scheme is not legal in the US unlike Australia.

new hardwares dont require gameshark CD.
with some games like MGS you cant back it up because the CD fits 800MB but DVD has a volume of 4GB.
some games you can and others you cant.

The link I posted above doesn't require any hardware installation and doesn't require a Take2 or Gameshark.

Thats why I wanted to know if I should go ahead and buy this because I don't want to buy something now and next week something better comes out.

If I have a DVD game all I have to do is burn it to a DVD-R and I'm good to go no problem...

the price is delicious,but what makes you think that it's true?
if they fool you then you can't get your money back.you ain't going to courts yelling "been cheated by cheated CD to cheat PS2!"
I prefer hardwares CDs can be scratched at any time.

Not sure it's worth going to court for that much money.

Well I'm not here to start a big debate on the negatives of having a boot disc over a mod-chip or any other combo.

First off I don't want to open my PS2 and modify the motherboard in any way, what happens if I **** it up then I'm screwed and you would all just laugh at me. Besides I'm not going to pay a professional to open my PS2 even though they are so-called Pro's who says they never **** up?!

Second off why would anyone buy a mod-chip you take chances of destroying the whole system and you need third party software on top of that. Gameshark or Take2 whatever that is.

With a boot disc you only need the disc. If your worried about it getting scratched you're one of many people that don't deserve to own cd's. They're are things called Jewel cases and they've even revolutionized to the Slim Jewel Case. If your too lazzy to keep a cd in good condition then a Boot Disc isn't the best of options for you.

Now that we've gotten past the positives and negatives can we have people that have seen a PS2 Boot Disc in action? If you've bought one say something - your voice needs heard.

Some people * cough * cough * Americans * cough will go to court and sue anyone for anything.

( which sucks by the way )

Why would I be going to court if I bought this boot disc?

If it happened to be a hoax- I'm not sure what I would do, probably sell a copy of it and make my money back.

It takes money to make money...
It takes money to sue somebody...

I might buy the Messiah chip, costs around £100, but I know a person who can get it cheaper!

But what happens if that person ****s up my PS2 ?

I saw this external one for PS2, fitted in the USB port !!!!! Might get that!

Hey, I don't know wheter you have found your answer or not, but I am still looking for mine... This is the problem: I want to be able to play downloaded ps2 games on my ps2. Therefor I have visited many forums, but the answer still remains unknown.
I do have some files: imgburn, dvddecryptor, utorrent, ans iso file of my copy game, swapmagic v3.6... Also I would like to do this, without modding the hardware of my ps2...
What do I have to do with al this? Can you give me the right tutorial?
Please help me out, this is frustrating, and
thx

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
