I'm not a huge gamer, so I'm pretty n00bish when it comes to all this stuff. I had a PS1 back when I was about 11 and I had no knowledge of using "backup" games since obtaining games was simply my mom buying me what I wanted.
I've been checking around, and did some searches here, but I still have some questions.
I just bought a PS2 the other day and I've decided to go with Swap Magic to play DLed games instead of a modchip, since it seems to be the cheapest/easiest way to do it.
When I burn DVDs, do I have to use DVD-R discs or can I use +R, too? I have the slim PS2 (I can check the model number if that's necessary). I am going to order SwapMagic 3.6 and the flip cover tonight, but I have some games I want to get off my computer before it would ship so I want to burn them and I won't be able to test them so I want to do it perfect.
Also wondering about playing burned PS1 games on PS2 and what options are there for that.
AND, if there is something better to mod my PS2, still within the same price range (~$45 and under), I'd love to hear some suggestions and hopefully you will include the pluses and minuses of it against swap magic. (Remember I'm a n00b, I can only understand so many game-mod terms )
