Being an avid user of Afterdawn, I decided to help out the community there by providing a list of games known to man that are copyable. This is by no means a complete list, as new games come along all the time, and old games may not be on the list.
No, I do not own all these games, only a select few. The afterdawn community has been gracious in helping me compile this list. As time goes on, this list will grow. You can help it grow too. I ask you go to the second link below and post your game update in the afterdawn thread.

Have a slim PS2? You can create your own sensor blocking tools using a straw, cardboard, and some paper. By blocking the sensors on the PS2 slim, you will be able to play backed up games using Swap Magic.
What is Swap Magic? Swap Magic is a swap disc that your playstation 2 reads, and it tricks your ps2 into being able to play backed up copied games.
Where can you buy Swap Magic? Try http://www.estarland.com. If you have a fat ps2, you will need to get Swap Magic with slide card. In next few days, I will have a tutorial showing you how to make your own slide card. Muahaha.
See youtube video below, it does a great job showing you how to make your own sensor blocking tools for the playstation 2 slim to make it work properly with Swap Magic.

Being a proud owner of the fat version of playstation 2, I thought I’d take the time to gather some tutorials over the next couple days, weeks, to have a collection of tutorials showing you how easy it is to copy PS2 games, back them up, and mod your PS2 to play these backed up games.
The first of the series is Swap Magic. Unfortunately, swap magic is hard to come by in the United States because of FBI raids in August. They launched search warrants in 16 states, goiing after mod chip makers and distributors. That isn’t to say you can’t find it in the United States. There are still some websites that continue to sell it. Which ones they are, I am not sure at this point. Please go to afterdawn.com forums, there are a lot of people there that can help steer you into the right direction.
