Getting external harddrive to work!
Getting external harddrive to work! –
I have looked in the forum for the answer for this question, but i found something else, which was very interesting!
I have this external harddrive I use for my computer also, but I thought, why not use it as a way to play my games through. My ps2 is kinda broke, so it is not every time it loads games. It is not chipped!
After reading about booting on the memory card, I saw that this could be a solution for me? My idea is to use my memory card to install a exploit and use it to load my hdd. Can i do that? I need help to how to do it, and which exploits i should use!
I have not very much knowledge in this area, so bear over me!
there is only 1 exploit.
but there are various ways to install it. There is a whole topic about it, u should read it. http://psx-scene.com/forums/swapmod-nomod-exploit-discussion/
there is indeed a way to load games from an external HDD, its called USB ADVANCE. When u have the exploit installed u can use use that program.
U can find it on various places, or else PM me.
Read the exploit topic first m8 That's where u should start...
1. what ps2 version? slim does not "support" exploit
2. if it's a chubby, why don't you install the exploit and use an internal drive instead?
3.usb game supports sux
4. the exploit itself does not allow you to boot games. It allos you to boot an app (hdl, hda, whatever) that allows you to play games you store on hdd.
5.for triggering off the exploit, you have to use a psx disc. if your PS2 does not read discs at all, exploit is no option for you.
6. try doing some cleaning / adjusting:
veritas vos liberabit
i rest my case
sorry broodje, we were obviously typing at the same time...
if you want to take care of this I retire
veritas vos liberabit
u did an excellent job
i think he must install the exploit first. then we can talk...
Well, thanks for the replies
To make it clear, it is NOT a slim, ergo the chubby one!
I am actually in the moment trying to buy a adapter and a 120GB harddrive so I can make it work internally, not externally with my external harddrive!
But when I have installed the adapter and the harddrive, how do I proceed? The exploit must be a psx cd you say? Well, I don't have my ps2 chipped, so I can't read the exploit?
ineed, u will need a friend who has a chipped ps2 or the exploit already installed.
u can also use cog swap loader and sum other original pressed cd's like ar max and hdloader i believe..
then again there's a whole thread about the exploit here:
I have read the how-to through, and it actually looks like I can figure that out for myself. I just need to borrow a modded ps2, so i can install the exploit on the MC.
Thank you broodje
Great, now the ps2 crashed and stopped working. That's just f*ck*ng great. But I have bought the new slim version
I then see a light: Can i use fliptop/swapmagic, boot a cd with launchelf and get my extern harddisk bootet? Sounds right to me!
