Hi, I just got a PS2, and I'm looking to play backups. Its a slimline, and brand new, but I'm not sure which model. Could someone here direct me to a faq with a breakdown of how to tell which model I have, recommended chips, etc... Please take pity on me, I was learning X-box stuff when I should have been learning PS2 stuff - I miss RPGs... and strategy games, and puzzle games, and weird Japanese games, arrgh, the Xbox is so boring.
A couple other questions. Does the media type matter, brand or + or - R? With the xbox, some drives like certain media.
I'm looking to buy a chip, or the swapmagic setup. Ideally, I want a setup where I can just pop in a backup and play.
Take pity on this poor newbie, and - in no time, I'll be that seeder who's bandwidth lets you get that torrent just a few minutes sooner. I'll be that one seeder, the only guy sharing a little Japanese puzzle game.
