Play Ps2 Backups with the Dms4 Modchip
Like the original Playstation video game console, Sony's PS2 has a large crowd of followers who not only like playing their purchased software, but would also like to play imported video games, as well as backup copies of their games.
In order to play backup / import games on your PS2, you'll need to be aware of the technical aspects of installing a modchip.
For anyone interested in this, they are probably already aware of the requirements of the modifications necessary into to get the backup / import software to run on the PS2 console.
With that being said, it should be noted that not all of these modification chips, or modchips as they are commonly referred to as on the internet, are not made equally.
Not all PS2 modchips, which allow the user to play backups, are created equally.
PS2 publishers are always creating new games with specific code within the games that prevent the games from being played on any system that has been modified with a modchip. For this reason, new modchip designs come out every month incorporating work around for the implemented code. Any user who is wishing to play backup copies of the latest game will not be satisfied if he or she chooses to purchase a modchip that was produced two years ago.
The latest (at the time of this writing) PS2 modchip that modifies Playstation 2 consoles, and allows them to play backup copies of games is the DMS4 Pro.
The DMS4 Pro is the fourth generation of PS2 modchip by the famous DMS team. The chip, once installed can automatically detect any kind of disc you place in your PS2 system. It will automatically play backup copies of PS1 and PS2 games as well backup DVD movies.
Installation in the past has been a bit tricky with PS2 consoles. While the DMS4 still requires seventeen to twenty (depending on your model) wires to be soldered on the motherboard, it's a big step up from previous versions requiring the soldering of more than thirty wires.
Along with the ability to play PS2 backup games, this chip also allows users to play Divx movies, play classic games via emulators, and also allows the user to easily update the chip's software with a burned CD.
