    Well I got swapmagic for my PS2 and I did everything. So now I want to play backups I downloaded the game Smackdown VS Raw 2008 for PS2. Now I want to put it into a DVD with IMGburner. But do I need to patch the game with Memento Disc Patcher or that is not necessary?

    You can play patched games with Swap Magic/Modchip as well. The patched images are pretty good if you have one PS2 with FMCB and one with SM/Modchip and don't want to burn a game for each PS2.

    And you do not need to patch your image if you only have Swap Magic it plays without it, but the decision to buy SM wasn't good. If I were you then i would install FMCB. I know that because I have used SM for a half year on one of my PS2 and I hated to swap the disc every time. Then I installed FMCB through Swap Magic and its running flawlessly on the PS2 until today. But I love to play with my other PS2 because of the Modchip

    You should only patch if your using FMCB, swap disk does not require you to patch the iso of the game.
    My PS2 modded with a modchip cannot play any games that are patched with memento, so the method you are using is the same as me. You do not need to patch the games.
