    No Idea what’s being said? – Grab Rocket Japanese!

    Use swap magic discs to play copied or other region games.

    The answer above mine is correct, except that in order to use swap magic, you need to buy a “Flip top” case for your PS2. This requres removing all of the contents of your PS2 and moving them into a different case. If you have the fatty system, go to Buy that app, a network adapter for the PS2 and up to a 120GB hard drive. This will allow you to not only play your games region free, but also you will be playing them from the hard drive. This reduces stress on the laser as it only boots the Hard drive using the HD loader disk and then everything else is off the hard drive. You will also seee 2/3rd faster “Loading” speeds.

    Good luck.
