a Disc that allows you to swap with to use your own created discs, ie: Naplink/Ps2liink. you will also need a way to eject the original disc without using the eject button.

In that site they say:

You just have to add a No Solder ModChip to modify your console.
I don't want to open mine... -_-
Plus, I wanted to get it here (Portugal!), since once I saw a huge store that sells it, but appears they don't have it anymore... Plus, I can't order online stuff >_<

You don't need a chip to use the swap magic. Trust me. I have a sodding swap magic so I can play Initial D, but my current PS2 has no chip

you will not be able to dump your bios if you cannot boot unsigned code. you cannot boot unsigned code if you do not modify your ps2, (excluding the independence/mem card exploit). if you can't do it online, and YOU don't want to wreck your ps2, get someone else to do it.

Unsigned code? WTH. You do not need to modify your PS2 to boot an elf. As I have said in another thread you can use the Exploit or Swap Magic(as it allows u to boot off CDR).
And Seeing as my current setup consists of a PS2 which can run either Naplink(via Pl2302 cable), Ps2link(Via NA), Ilink(Via Other Software) , Exploit , Swap Magic and Mod chip, I think I would know

The modified flip top cover case can be used to achieve the swap without hitting eject. The other way is a slide tool for the drive tray.
As far as what Swap Magic is used for, it allows playing imported games, and also for playing backups of games on CD-R and DVD-R

What about the slimline is the flip lid recognised?
There is a method of taping some buttons on the inside of the new slim model to keep the system from recognizing the lid being open, so with the new model you don't have to use a modded case or slide tool. Or you can fill the holes with tissue to hold the buttons down too, so you don't have to void your warranty to use the SM discs. I'm using a version 4 PS2 SCPH 30001 with a transparent blue case with flip top and I don't have a mod chip and my backups play just fine.

Here's what mine looked like when I did the case exchange.

Here's the official site for more info www.swapmagic3.com

yeah I though so, didn't you recognize what that ';)' could mean? also... I wrote that post, to alarm some ppl not to 'go into' that area and ruin your thread (lots of new members did that in few days till today)

gotcha, I know how trodding across that line can happen, I've seen it before. And I hope nobody takes this thread beyond it's intent and into any muddy waters, *hint-hint*. And I didn't realize that's what the wink was for. OK everyone, keep it clean and not get this thread locked.
