Boot from USB device? –
I got a PS2 from a friend, but there's something wrong with the lens or something, so I can't run anything from cd/dvd untill I get it fixed.
Is it possible to run anything from a usb memory stick or usb drive in the meantime? Apparently there's a media player that lets you play movie from your pc if you connect your PS2 to your network? Will I maybe be able to run that from a memory stick?
If the PS2 can't read any CD/DVD discs at all, then there is no way to boot any software unless that PS2 also has a modchip with special support for 'homebrew' booting from some other device, usually MC or HDD, though some modchips don't have any such support. Of course, you'd also need help from someone with another PS2, already capable of running homebrew progs, in order to install the necessary files on your own MC.

Without CD/DVD capability a mod-less PS2 is just a big paperweight...
Sorry, but that's how it is.

Thanks for the explanation, still very new to the PS2.
The PS2 is chipped, but I have no idea what modchip was used. Is there a way to find out?
