(Matrix boot question) When a laser says no more... –
First of all the mandatory sorry:
i'm a first time poster here and have come here because of my ps2 hardware problem. i've been browsing and searching around for the past hour or 2 for an answer but nothing was really define. So i'll make a nice little post. My excuses if this is not the right forum for this post.
Got me a little slim ps2 (SCPH - 75004) and the latest Matrix infinity (which works fine) but now after a few months of extensive play the lazer is pritty much done for (can't read any media, including official). So now i face a choice, getting a new laser-unit, assemble it and play on (which may fail after some time) or try to use my external usb HD as a gamedevice.
I've been reading all about it and in general got the idea on how to get it all working, but problem is that my laser is busted so i won't be able to boot USBextreme-cd's or nothing. I am about to order the cd's and i can use a mate's ps2 (same version, same chip) for testing/transferring.
My question now is, can the Matix chip boot up USB memory sticks and how must the USBextreme software be organized on it? If that is a no, how can i get the software to run from the standard offical memory card? Or is there another way to get the games to run from an USB HD without using the cd drive?
Many thanks in advance,
Matric infinity has DEV1 and DEV2 boot. (booting elfs from memcard or HDD with one button)
so i guess its possible, but your better of downloading a USb extreme copy i think. its free and if it doesnt work, u saved your money.
another option is hd connect. much fdaster speeds
hdconnect wont work on the v14 (75000x) units since $ony removed the solder points needed to hardwire the ide attachment. The usb hdd option is not really the most reliable since compatibility is extremely poor. I would just get a new laser and use better media.
