    you can softmod the console (like swaping with the magic swap in the PS2), you need either a PSO Ep I&II with a Broadband adaptor OR a Max Drive PRO. (and it makes wonders)

    Or even an Action Replay + SD Memory card adaptor.
    Either way you will probably need to tweak the laser, sorry I forgot to add that.

    How does an action replay and an SD memory card adaptor work? and how would I "tweak" the laser?

    well I saw one of those SD card adapters on Ebay for $50 + I would need an action replay also so that option would be out of the question..

    You can get a Qoob SX for around 30 bucks....thats what I have and its great [​IMG] Or if you are really cheap, you could get a Ninjamod. They're 19.99 at divineo.....that's where I got my modded GC case from.

    I can get the Max Drive PRO but does it really work like a Magic Swap for PS2? (put in the disk, boot it, then put in the backup game?)

    Max Drive Pro works great. I use it all the time.

    I do a similar thing to the max drive pro softmod, except I made my own SD adapter together with SDload.

    Max Drive Pro is probably more than your $30 budget, but you won't have to solder. You can only get it from one source and they used to be on back-order for a while in the past. I don't know they well they handle multi-disc games, although there are only a few multi-disc games.

    Viper is probably one of the more expensive chips along with the Qoob Pro. As others have mentioned, the Xeno, Duo and Qoob SX are excellent options. The Xeno and Duo are not upgradeable.
