Totally new to the PS2
Totally new to the PS2 –
I just bought an unmodded PS2, v9, and I am trying to get it to interface with a USB hard drive.
I have downloaded the about every program I have been able to find that says that it will make a PS2 interface with a hard drive and everytime I burn the iso/bin whatever to a cd and try to boot up the PS2 with the disc in the drive it comes up and tells me to insert a Playstation/Playstation2 disc.
I am using a Sony 52x CD Burner with Phillips 52x 80-minute cd's, Nero 7 Ultra Edition and I am setting the burn speed down to 4x.
That's what 'unmodded PS2' means. They are all incapable of booting burned CD-R discs...

Another solution that does NOT let you read CD-R, but still lets you run homebrew stuff, is to have someone else with a working PS2 homebrew setup install an 'exploit' onto your PS2 memory card. That exploit can then be used to start a homebrew program stored on that card when you boot a PS1 disc (because it's the PS1 interpreter that is being exploited). Such a homebrew program can then access USB storage devices as you wish.
