PStwo + USB HD without any discs or boot chip?
PStwo + USB HD without any discs or boot chip? –
Hi, I'm all new to PS2 and USB HD
I have a PS2 slim (70004 / V12) and a USB HD (Seagate 160 gb.)
I have used the USB extreme software (www(dot)hdadvance(dot)com/download/USBExtreme_wininst.zip) to format the USB HD and load some games onto it.
However I can't get it to work. When I turn on the PS2, it shows 2 menus:
Is it at all possible to boot games with this setup, or MUST I have some kind of boot dics (like the one that comes with this package: www(dot)playstationdirect(dot)com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24&products_id=46) for this to work?
you will need to either have a mc exploit or swapmagic3.6 boot disk or a chip.

personally i use swapmagic 3.6 as i dont have my ps2 chipped. i use a usb key/thumb drive .... put a folder on it called "swapmagic" in that folder put the usbadvance ..elf file but rename it to SWAPMAGIC.elf (in capitals) boot ps2 with swapmagic disc... it will find the folder and boot usbadvance and away you go.
