Firmware and backups on rw media
Firmware and backups on rw media –
Is it possible to install firmware and play backups on my v9 ps2 using rw media. Is this not recomended to the strain on the laser. Tried doing the v34 firmware on cdrw and it would not load so I was curious as to the feasablility of this.
It is possible. Someone in that forum did recently. But the PS 2 doesn't like cd-rw at all. They are a very few media that will work . I think also that some PS 2 models don't even accept cd-rw as a possible media.
It only works for me with one cdrw I have , it came with an old LG combo drive(LG Branded CDRW Media).It works for upgrading and testing games.
yeah my v7 with a different chip worked with a sony cdrw to do firmware upgrades but that disc did not work with this chip. Anyone know about using the dvdrw with backups
It also needs to be pointed out that you need to have the 'F' wire installed in order to boot RW media.
And RW media is a lot harder for your laser (it get´s bad much faster)
Thanks for the info on the F wire I will have to contact my installer to see if he installed it. I think that may be the problem.
