My copy of GT3 for PS2 has stopped working, I assume because the disk is dead. I have quite a few games and a CD/DVD burner and I'm considering backing them up. I am aware that my PS2 won't be able to read the backups though. Not a problem until I need them. Also, I would like to start getting some japanese and US games like GT4 prologue etc. What do I need for my PS2 to a) be able to read my backups and b) be able to play any region of disk? I guess some sort of chip but is there any solution that doesn't involve soldering? I want a permanent fix, no disk swapping ideas. I've seen Action Replay and Messiah etc. but it's not really clear how all these things work together and which you need. Could somebody in the know please give me a very quick summary of what my options are? If I need to get it chipped, is there a good company I can send it to that are cheap and reliable?
